SOA Young At Heart Blog Hop

How awesome is this collection?  It is my favorite one yet!!!  If you are following along the Stamp of Approval Young at Heart blog hop you should have come from the creatively talented, Kristie's, blog.  I'll include a list of all the participants at the bottom if you get lost or want to start over at the top.


The collection screamed bright and cheerful to me, so I had to make a rainbow card.  Check out the video below to see how it was made.
