  1. Fantastic release, as always.
    Love the sweet little animals
    and the cowgirls. thanks
    for having the hop.

  2. Wonderful release! Great sample cards – couldn’t wait to see what the designers had in store so I proceeded to the hop before commenting. I tried to leave a comment for each designer, but sadly several wouldn’t allow me due to blogger error and others would only allow me to comment as anonymous.

  3. What an exciting release! Definitely something for everyone and my wish list is long! So excited about the introduction of the Pawsitively Saturated ink cubes — I’ve been wanting to try them for a long time!

  4. Super release! The Fancy Hello and Thanks are a great staple in my stash! The cowgirl in Howdy is the most adorable set!

  5. So many goodies. I am most pleased to see the mini ink cubes. I had asked last year about this size and at the time there was no plan to make mini ink cubes besides the existing four cubes. But my inquiry and interest would be forwarded to the Marketing Dept. Thank you. I hope new mini cubes in different colors will be coming out soon.
