Flying High with Nicky

Hello everyone this is Nicky with you today, thank you for coming by the Hello Bluebird Blog where I’m sharing a new slimline card featuring one of the adorable new stamp sets from the recent May 6th release.   This is Flying High.   Read on for all the details.

Polar Friends with Nicky

Hello friends this is Nicky with you today and I’m sharing a card using Polar Friends from the brand new Black Friday winter release!   This slimline card also uses the new Winter Walk Scene Die which is actually going to carry you through 365 days of the year with a little imagination.   Today I’m staying firmly in the Winter/Christmas genre of course.
