Up Up and Away Greetings is here and i'm enjoying all the kind words i'm hearing about the cards and the art. Thank you! I'll share a few more details about each card and some details you may find helpful for putting your cards together. As I mentioned in the kit I changed packaging this month to offset rising shipping costs and this new packaging also creates less waste... win win! If you have any concerns about the packaging or if any item in your kit was not in perfect condition please let me know.
