THE GREAT OUTDOORS...

All winter long, my husband has said that when spring arrives, he will start working on my Honey-Do-List which includes building an outdoor BBQ. I made this card and wrote sweet things inside to remind him of his promise...

And I included a little photo of a BBQ...

So... I wonder how long it will take him to get inspired!!

Embossing on White Vellum creates a delicate and unique effect...
