Sunday International Stamped Cards

Key to my Heart card

WOW! I'm finally back to my baby blog. It's been a while so I hope you like what I've been up to lately.

I'm having a lot of fun being on the Design Team of Sunday International. The team consists of some fun-lovin' stamping gals and it's just a pleasure getting to know each one of them along with working with Sunday International. Visit the SI website and see all the other wonderful rubber stamp images they have to offer. Woo-hoo! (yep... I say this all the time.)

Here's the 'how to' of my card. Don't hesitate to ask questions. Sometimes it's easy for me to assume my directions are simple. (You know... simple mind that I am.)
