Jeg har brukt søte honningbie 🐝 motiv fra 'Sweet Bees Papers and Clipart Set' på mine to kort idag, som er DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #250. Vi er sponset av vår DT Anne Constantly-Carding! 😊 Hun selger digitale kits/ark pakker gjennom CraftsUPrint, og gir bort tre flotte digikits som premie. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være! 🧡
