Now, on to my card! I created this using the new Have Faith stamp set. I masked and inked the hill and then added another fun stitched hill with Stitched Dies. I stamped the crosses and sentiment from the set. There are so many great words in this set! The felt bow was cut from another fun die being released this month! Isn't it adorable?!?!


Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the hop! :)
