A Simple Hello............FMS26



There is a lot going on in this card - embossing, stamping, buttons, ribbon, thread.......and yet.......it's all about the tiny tag.  Everything else is lovely but that tiny tag makes me smile.  I just returned from a trip to Florida to visit my mom.  Two days driving down, five days there and two days driving back.  The seaside condo was lovely, the beach was gorgeous and Disney World was terrific.......and yet.......it was all about those 4 days I spent in the car traveling with my grown-up "kids".  Everything else was lovely but it's those four days that make me smile.....we had a great time........

How wonderful that four days in a car was the highlight of your trip! I'm glad your trip was so fun and that you've arrived safe and sound back home. And on to this beautiful card. I have to agree that this card calls to mind a lovely china pattern. The buttons are a great addition.
