Paper Smooches Blog Hug for Kim

Good morning everyone!

Today is a little different kind of post. You may have heard that Kim of Paper Smooches has closed down her shop. Kim has been a huge part of the stamping/carding community for so long, and I was lucky to be on the PS DT for a bit. I love, love, love Kim's fun and whimsical stamps, but it is really her kind and encouraging presence that I will miss the most! 

So to celebrate Kim, some of us decided to put together a Blog Hug (not really a hop, lol)! Here's the card I made and am popping into the mail for Kim as we speak! It's colorful, happy, and fun, just like she is!

This Blog Hug is a surprise for Kim, and I hope she enjoys it and feels the love! Here's the links to the rest of the huggers (heehee)!
