This Month as an exclusive special is a kit that includes a thin cut set with ALL the animals, plus little 3x3 cards with instructions to make cute little cards. I've been making the cards with my 9yr old daughter to give to her friends at school.  I'm not posting my versions here because the official Close to MY Heart photo below is much prettier than mine.

    1. I needed a quick way to stamp lots of cards, colouring would take too long for lots of cards... I think painting will be the next quickest.
