Love Is In The Air

It’s been so much fun going through the many, many boxes of cards and creations by our design team and beadie buds! 

I find it especially fun (and funny) when I email Julie that I’ve found a great card that she made some time ago and since I know she saves all of her instructions could she please email them to me?  And she does, even though she has no memory of what the card looked like she can find those instructions every time!  So here it is for all of you to see – including Julie!  Ü


P.S. I think it’s quite clever how Julie made the shaker look like it was part of a picture frame hanging on the wall!
