This & That

Hey there, Bleeps! Today, I'm sharing something old, but not really! I never got a chance to share the projects I submitted for 2S4Y design team. There were two sketches to use, one by Laura and the other by Kazan. For the first, I made a notepad, inspired by Mish's notepads by Papertrey Ink. The second card is just a happy-go-lucky card!

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day!
