After the game this morning, we fell back to sleep shortly after 7am till 10am. These early morning starts are getting to us, but we wouldn't miss it!!

What a fun night we had last night! A few girls from my downline came over to stamp. It was a good night of laughs, munching on yummy food, and creating like crazy. We decide that each of us would make a card, and then make multiples for each other. It was great deal as I think by the time we were done, we had made over 10 different cards!

This was a card that Michelle made. She CASE a card that I had made a few weeks ago, but change up the impression folder and the greeting! I love how it turned out!

Oh, here is another sneak peek at the new Honeycomb Impression Folder!!
