Sending Warm Hugs

Hello Friends! I'm soooooo EXCITED to announce that I've been ask to join the Sweet n' Sassy Stamps design team! I absolutely LOVE this company and beautiful stamps they create and sell.

For my very first card as DT member I created a fun beach scene using their December's Melt For You set and adding some polka dots from the brand new Texture Tiles 5 (January's stamp of the month - free with a $75 purchase).  My little beach "sandman"  is sending warm hugs from the seashore to friends experiencing January's cold winter chill!
