I haven't stopped by to say hi for awhile but wanted to say that I always enjoy your card tutorials...they are so beautiful and helpful. Of course, I always enjoy your blog when I visit no matter the topic. :o)

Hope you're having a great summer so far. Oh, and if you and the girls are interested, we're reading "Wind In The Willows" together over at Old Fashioned Times.

Isn't it fun to just sit down and "create"? I could go up to my room and do it for hours on end (if I had the time).
While on our trip I came across some wonderful things to use on cards and tags. I found vintage "tea cards". I had never seen or heard of them. But they have the date of 1960 on them, and look like small playing cards. They have great pictures of butterflies and birds on them.
I'll send you some pictures.
Have a wonderful, peaceful and safe 4th! Karen
