I just love this little envelope in Take Note. I've fussy cut out a few in Simple Stories Summer Fresh Paper Pad and just had to have a peek inside one of them. Oh how sweet, there's a love note inside. It's made with the loose-leaf paper stamp in the Blue Skies set and a smashing sweet sentiment from our spotlight stamp set today, Take Note.

Now if you haven't been hopping with us already, you can start at the top of our Master Hop List and get some fabulous sneak peeks today.
