Hi everyone and happy Saturday!  It's Jules on the blog today sharing something a little different.  Today, I'd love to share my latest crafting obsession... memorydex cards.  And the stamps in the Quotables Sentiment stamp set are perfect to make a whole set of memorydex cards.  Yep, I'm sure so many of you have used these and had so much fun... but it's all still new for me, so indulge me in my new journey.
