Warm Hugs card

And it is on sale right now!  I wasn't able to go to Kay's retreat a couple of weekends ago, but I got the kit to-go.  The card on the left was one of the projects from the retreat.  I decided to change it up a little and make it on Facebook Live tonight.  I ended up with the card on the right.
