Keep Your Face to the Sunshine

Hi Stamping Friends,

I was so inspired by this card of Snippets – Karen that I made mine in no time. Thanks, Karen!

A portion of my previously made cardstock (for this project) looks extremely like the ocean! What a coincidence! Hope this CAS card is cheerful to you. Thanks for stopping by.
