AND it is carrying over to the new catalog!  Not only is it tailor-made for babies and Easter, it is a perfect set for making friendship cards like this one.  This card is a fun one to color with Stampin’ Blends.  If yellow is not your cheerful color of choice,  just switch it out for a different color of Gingham Gala paper. I hope you enjoy today’s card.
