For this hop I have created the above card
using micro beads which is a staple selling
item that drew all of Pennywisers together.

Micro Beads are beads with no holes
you will either love them or hate them.
You love them because they are unique
and give an added dimension to your crafting
and you hate them because it is almost the size
of coffee sugar
and boy if you drop some on the carpet
you can kiss it goodbye
or let the dog lick it up!
