Hi friends! Please join me in welcoming back the always fantastic Yana Smakula as a guest on our blog! The Christmas Critters she made on her last guest post was so popular she decided to make another! I think this design is so cute and I love the idea of a more traditional looking background using the Advent Plus Holiday Icons with red and green colors and then a pop of pink with the Summertime Animals flamingo! She finished off with an embossed sentiment from the Advent Sentiments stamp set! Be sure to watch the video and enjoy!
