Christy Beans said...

Such summertime prettiness! I get so used to thinking of your cards in terms of distressing and more muted tones that I am always pleasantly surprised when it's a clean edged, bright card like this one. LOL Truly lovely! =) And thanks for the hugs. I hate that they have such short lives but I suppose it means we have to cherish what time we have with the little furry lovables. Have a great week! ~Christy

Debbie said...
