Hello there! Happy Wednesday....or if you're in my neck of the woods, Happy Smoky Day! Dang it...the fires are acting up around us! The air is hazardous and you can see less than 1/4 of a mile ahead when driving. We're praying for rain and for protection of homes (not mine at this point) but many little mountain towns around us. How's everything where you are? I hope you've been finding some time to create! I made my first card in a box today. I'll be sharing it soon! First I want to share a really pretty treat/gift holder that you can use for ANY occasion!
