Missing You & A Congratulations!

Can you believe we are about to wrap up the decade?! Wow! So much to think about. 🙂 Almost too much! So let’s talk paper crafting, shall we? 🙂

Today I’m sharing this little cutie patootie card using a sentiment from the  Paper Smooches NEW RELEASE. Check out all the new fun HERE! 🙂


I combined the new sentiment set Vanilla Verbiage Stamps (& Dies) with an oldie but a goodie little critter from Santa Paws.  🙂
I colored the little mouse with Copics and kept the rest very simple. Sometimes this really conveys so much, doesn’t it? He’s so stinkin’ cute. The new Vanilla Verbiage set moved straight to my top of my PS faves….love how the sentiments are so uniquely arranged and designed. Kim is so good like that! 🙂
And speaking of these sentiments…Here’s another card I made using the same Vanilla Verbiage set with another new die set called Charms Dies. These are so fun and like no other die set I own! 🙂
This card also uses the previously released die from the Postage Stamp Dies. White and white and white is always a win with me. The simple pops of color make my CAS heart happy! 🙂

Be sure to check out all the NEW Paper Smooches release! ♥️


Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great week!

Take care–Jill 🙂
