Hey there ~ Cute Squirrel Card with hand colored ribbon

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I promised to share my voyage in learning how to use Stampin’ Blends. In this 6th video in the series, I share how to color ribbon to match your project and features the utterly cute Nuts about Squirrels Stamp Set.
