Hi! Today we celebrate the end of an amazingly creative year with fellow card designers using Altenew products!

“A year in Review” blog hop with lots of giveaways and inspiration! I picked 4 of my favorite cards below! They had to be flower cards since Altenew makes the best flower stamps out there… and then I decided to pick a color theme too… so I went with pinks and purples.
