A little about today's featured products...

Lean on Me is a set of flower images and sentiments meant for encouraging others.  Daisies always lift my spirits and I thought it would be fun to have something new to color and layer, so I created the Pointed Flowers Die Set to coordinate with this set.  The fonts in Lean on Me are a combination I fell in love with back in the Hope Blooms set and have been wanting to revisit.  As an added bonus, these sentiments fit beautifully on our Ribbon Banner Die.

And speaking of the Ribbon Banner Die, we'll be releasing a Thatched Banner Plain Jane, which coordinates with this die, and has a cool background effect that will make it great for masculine card making.  Also in the mix is the Dreamy Leaves Die Set  which coordinates with the large and medium leaves in the Dream Big set.  I just love it when we can breathe new life into an old favorite!
