Hello Blog

Yes, it's been a while.

I've really been enjoying my summer away from the computer. Even if it means not keeping up on my blog, my friends on Facebook or the 1500+ entries in Google Reader.


This is a card with coordinating tag that I made for my cousin's daughter on her 1st Communion.
The color scheme is so spring-y to me and was inspired by the
colourQ Challenge #31.

This is the gift with the envelope tucked under the ribbon and the card on display. I love wrapping presents with plain kraft paper because I can customize the ribbon and tag to match the card.
