Not only is today Art 'n Soul's 11th Birthday Party (from 1:00 to 4:00)! Today is the start of this month's Inspiration Station at Art 'n Soul. We're focusing on one of the new Magenta templates that each of our staff will create from.

To kick off June's Inspiration Station, Marj has created the most beautiful card. Helene was so delighted to see it on Friday and had to send a photo of it immediately to the designer back at Magenta. Marj was quite surprised at the blended colors!
