Gina K Inspiration Hop Day 3: Bold and Beautiful


with gratitude

Today is our last day of inspiration hops – hope you have been enjoying all the wonderful creations Gina & the designer’s have had to share with us!  Last up is our One Free with Three sets, Bold and Beautiful!  That means now until the next release, when you purchase 3 stamp sets, you get this one absolutely FREE!  Its value is $19.95, can’t beat that!  But, as always, if you miss out on the one free time frame, when the next release happens it will be available for purchase, so you will never miss out on getting it!  In this set, there are 2 large images and 5 sentiments.
