    You have such talented designers and all the cards are just amazing. I especially like the bells and berries and the adornments stamps though. I know I won’t be able to do nearly as nice a card as your DT but the stamps LOOK easy enough to use. I really appreciate the video tutorials as they provide a lot of tips that really help. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the release.
