Fox in heart

I think my inspiration for this card was one displayed on the incentive cruise.  I thought it was absolutely adorable and recreated it for a baby shower card, then made a variation for camp this month. We made this fox … Continue reading

A flourishing note

We’re in the middle of several sweltering, miserable days.  The humidity is 99% but we needed rain badly until a storm roared through last night.  You’d think after living my whole life in the same state and pretty much the same … Continue reading
