Inspirational Blog Hop- Day 1



Welcome to Day 1 of our Inspirational Blog Hop.

We had so much fun last night at our release party! I posted a video on the home page and one of the techniques I showcased was coloring this gorgeous poppy from one of Melanie Muenchinger's new stamp sets, Stately Flowers 1.
This set is perfect for every flower lover and it's the first in a series of all 50 states and the flowers that represent them.



Not only are these flowers beautiful, but they can be mixed and matched with other greetings in your collection to make cards for ANY occasion.
