Inspiration Friday - Inspired by Numbers

In the United States, April 15th is Tax Day. It's a time when we're crunching numbers and doing all of the paperwork that goes along with it. If you're anything like me, numbers make your head spin, but in crafting, they can be a whole lot of fun!

Today we are going to celebrate numbers with a fun little countdown to kick off the weekend. Get ready for some cuteness — number-style.
