Stampin’ Up! Apron of Love Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a sketch challenge.  When I saw the sketch I thought, “that is perfect for the “Apron of Love” stamp set and matching dies”.  I just love to open up new products and create such fun cards.    I will be using this set for my upcoming card classes and can’t wait to share this with my customers.  This set is so versatile, make a Mother’s Day card or change it up for Father’s Day.  Oh, I see an Alternate Monday theme coming…check my blog on Monday too and see what I create.  What a joy I had playing with all the little pieces to make some pretty cute aprons!
