Hello Honey…

Join My Team

Wanted to share a Hello Honey card sample today. While this was not one of my most favorite 2014-2016 In Colors, it kind of grew on me the more I used it. You might notice another retiring In Color, Mossy Meadow, in this project. Enjoy! If you'd like to add any of the products used in today's project, just click on the pictures below.

Be sure to check out some important dates at the end of the post…don't want you to miss out on anything!
