I hope that you enjoyed the Premiere today and I hope you will want to add the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set or bundle to your next order. I love how this stamp set turned out. The artist, Kathy Pitt, absolutely NAILED my idea. She loves retro too so she was excited to design this stamp set for me. What a surprise it was when I discovered there were dies that went along with it! They are such a fun addition but it’s nice to know you can just use the stamp set alone and still make fun giggle cards. We need to send more giggle cards, don’t you think?

Thanks again for being with me tonight! Have a great rest of your week and make plans to join me on Saturday. I have a 5-Minute DIY card created with Forever Fern that you won’t want to miss. I have a card for the guys and a card for the gals! See you on Saturday!
