Heartfelt Creations

I hope everyone is having a good week!  It is time for another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday.  During the month of December Heartfelt will not be releasing new products. Heartfelt will continue their normal schedule of the second Wednesday of the month in January. December is a good time to purchase stamps from their Limited Edition section. Those stamps will only be available until December 31st. So get them before they are gone.

The first card I am sharing today features the HCPC 2293 & HCPC 2294 Aztec Gold Sunflower stamps and HCPC 2252 Stem & Leaves set which are some of the stamps that will only be available until December 31st.
