These cards are so beautiful, can’t wait to see the add ons. Hero Arts always get me to continue buying it’s kits because they are full of excitement specially the Christmas kits, I just love them.Michelle, your card it’s effortless, but stunning. Maria, I love the background with the silhouette of Santa bringing joy to the world and Danna, the strips technique it’s so beautiful, thank you all for sharing such charming cards. I love the sentiments, they are perfect because with the pandemia, we have to send our love ones a little bid of love and these sentiments are perfect. I can’t wait to receive my kit so I can have enough time due to my health, it will take me a little longer then usual to make my cards and donate a few it’s a must in gratitude that I am still here with all of the crafters.
