All my projects on this tour will feature the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set.
This first project uses the Thoughts and Prayers images from Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio. I never thought in a million years that I would enjoy making digital cards, but they are so quick to make and so easy to share.
One of the great things about using a digital program, I can sew much straighter with MDS than I can in real life! Plus by the time I remember to send the Get Well Card using snail mail, the recipient is already well. With My Digital Studio technology is grand! LOL
My second project is a little deskset. I love to have a pretty little set on my desk so I can drop a quick note to someone that needs a some encouragement and support. Don't these colors scream spring?
