    What fun for the winners! Congrats. Looking forward to the die cuts for flowers. I love the colors and the tulips. With the 5″x7″ pop-up card kits that were seasonal, I added in extra floral die cuts from other die cut sets and need more now. Also, just received the last Terrific Titles shipment for 2017 on auto-ship that was 15 days late. What a wonderful cut and emboss collection, and the magnetic binder holds them all! 2017 really was a banner year for exceptional products. Already excited for 2018.

As you say all thing work together from them all. I made a couple of Christmas cards and a very simple card from the Decoupage kit. I will try to put than on Facebook. I am challenged sometimes. Can hardly wait to see everything on HSN. Love and blessings for a very Merry Christmas. Betsy from NC
