Good morning SCT friends!!! We are so glad you've joined us this morning to celebrate the release of the brand new summer issue! I absolutely love release day.  We have had 38 release days and each one leaves me like a kid on Christmas morning.  After 6 months of preparation, a lot of hard work (although no blood and no tears!), some logistical and distribution fun (oh and a wall of pizza boxes for the kits!), the issue is HERE and ready to be enjoyed by readers all around the world. Once again the SCT team has brought to you their very best. They have created beautiful and creative artwork that will encourage you, inspire you and provide you with many hours of pleasure as you flip through the pages again and again.

On a sweet, serious note, Scrapbook & Cards Today happens because of our great team. They are extraordinary women that I am blessed to work with and call friends. They make it happen and I am grateful to them for their innovation, creativity and high standards.  They are the best.  I am also grateful to our partners that support every issue and SCT in so many different ways. We really do work with the most amazing companies out there. In return, please support them. Without them, Scrapbook & Cards Today could not happen. Yes, today is a day full of gratitude for all involved in each issue.

In the end though, we do this for YOU!  And we love doing it!  

Have a wonderful weekend friends!  Go view/download the issue or if you think on this Father's Day weekend you deserve a little something, something too, then why not subscribe.  You can do that HERE.  And yes I have been called an "enabler" before 🙂
