This ‘Thanks’ die is really great. Love the versatility!
This is my favorite die from the release! I love your cards!! I think this is a very versatile die!! Can’t wait to get mine!! Thank you for sharing, Vicky!
I like how you can get so many looks with this one die.
These are all fantastic Vicky, its hard to pick a fave from anything that you do but I do love the shaker. The Oxide spays intrigued me so that may be why I chose that one but they really are all awesome. Well done as always.
