Celebrate Today for CC&S

I must admit Caro’s challenge this week had me stumped.  I had an idea in my head when I saw it but it didn’t work out when I created my prototype and it was back to the drawing board.  Usually, a tweak here and there sorts it for me, but this time I had to think up a totally new card.  Here is the sketch we are working on and here… Read More »
