    Thanks for the great tutorial and mini kit, Karen. I’ve been a fan for quite a few years now and am really glad to see you at Digital Scrapper. Your tutorial came at just the right time as I needed to make a nice digital birthday card for my best friend. I was able to use your typing in a circle and foundation to make her the perfect card.
