Neat and Tangled round 3

The MISTI (stamping tool) is pretty awesome and is a life-saver when making multiples of the same card.  So with the intent of making holiday cards “easier” this year I stamped the same card three times and began coloring the sweet boy and girl images from ‘Lumberjack Love’.  I couldn’t do it.  I colored all […]
