Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Waterfront Stamp Set

I realised that I hadn’t used the Waterfront Stamp Set at a Card & Cuppa class, so it was time to change that. This project is very similar to this one we made at my Waterfront class. It’s great to use previous designs and tweak them slightly. For this version I’ve used new colours and
