It felt so good to make a card again - it's been too long :)

I used the new Mustaches Dies and a stamp set called Daddy Yo!  The new Frame 3 Die is next in line.

I created a fun background with die cut mustaches and topped it off with a simple sentiment inside the die cut frame.  The Mustaches Dies will surely be a blast to create with!!

A woman driving to a Dave Matthews concert stopped to help a bicyclist with a flat tire, who turned out to be Dave Matthews. She and her boyfriend got front row seats, backstage passes, and Matthews took them to dinner afterwords.

Thank you so much for joining us!

The term “nutritionist” is not legally protected nor regulated, so anyone can advertise themselves as a nutritionist regardless of education or credentials. But “dietitian” or specifically “registered dietitian” legally requires education via credited curriculum and passing a registration exam.

super smooches!!
