Good grief... where is this year going? I can't believe its June! Let me introduce you to my brand new kit Home Sweet Home Greetings. Such a sweet collection of little houses, gnomes, mushrooms, trees and a bunch of happy sentiments to send to all your family and friends! I used markers to color in some of the black and white art on the sentiments page, for example I colored the flowers yellow. I also added some light tan ink to the edges of some of the sentiments. Color copies are provided in your kit and all the cards have white envelopes with the exception of the two small 3x3 cards that I intended to have twine hangers and used as tags. Here are some more tips and trips for putting your cards together. Hope you enjoy your creative time!
