All-Day Large Card Storage Tote - This Saturday.

Hi all,

Hope you're all well and have been enjoying the lovely weather we've been having recently, despite today's downpour for most of the day that is!

Have been busy preparing for my Large Card Storage Tote Event being held this Saturday at my home where the ladies will make their own personalised tote to house their A5 and A6 cards in the designated months :)

I've been busy making a sample for the ladies to view and perhaps for me to keep! lol.

Here's a sneak peek of it below using a mixture of both retired and current Stampin' Up! goodies.
