I'm also including a supply list and cardstock measurements.

  • Real Red cardstock—3 pieces measuring 6" x 12"

On a side note, if you had previously signed up to receive email updates on my blog, I would like to request that you sign up again through the feedburner box in the left column under my picture.  The service that I had been using quit working, so no one has received any updates for at least a month.  I apologize for any inconvenience.

And if you are new to my blog, I would love to have you sign up for updates and my newsletter, too!

Happy Stampin'
