Happy Discovery...Grandma Patta's Christmas Card!

Grandma Patta's Card...
I found it quite by happenstance in an old scrapbook that belonged to Grandma Patta.  It's just a small and simple card...but I was thrilled to find it tucked inside with a belated birthday card that had come to her from Grandma Zetta.

It's so much fun to scan these cards...and use them over and over again in my crafting.  I have enjoyed the many cards and graphics that some of the other bloggers have shared.  Please feel free to use this little card if you like.
The sweet little boys inside the card.

Some New Tags...

Finding the card made me want to make tags today!
After all the tag swaps...I thought the well had run dry.
How cute the little choir boys look!

This is a different color palette for me.
I will be using a lot of cream and aqua for my daughter Amber's wedding decor.
It will be a Valentine's wedding...so a cheery cherry red will be used (sparingly) as an accent.
I can't wait to share some of my ideas.

Have a cozy evening,

I kept almost all the cards my wonderful grandmother sent me! She always would send the ones of the little girls in pretty, long dresess to me when I was little and I would tape them to my wall. (Something my Dad had fits about!)

I am loving your aqua tag! I have an aluminum tree with aqua and pink decorations this year. Such a pretty pallet.

Blessings
