I started card making a year ago when I was in shielding your monthly collection was one of the first ones I brought I live in the UK so the postage and tax is quite high so this monthly bundle is my way of treating myself your bundles are so easy to use and you give help which starts the thinking juices going your products are top quality and I absolutely love them so I don’t tend to buy an awful lot but you’re one of the top companies I buy from time and time again so thanks guys keep up the really good work
not too much though otherwise it’s going to cost me a fortune

This kit is going to lift up my spirit because I love making Christmas cards and since it’s a Victorian theme, I can compare it to my wealthy great grandmother and grandmother. I still have a bit of memories when I was about 4 and we lived with grandma, the house was sort of Victorian style. For sure I will enjoy this kit a lot. Thank you Hero Arts and all of its members.
