One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Festive Friday # 35

I pulled out my distress inks and watercolor brush to make my own plaid Christmas wrap.  I embossed the "string" from PTI No Strings Attached and added a tag.
 If you want to get a jump start on your Christmas cards, you can go to Festive Friday and play along.
We are having another HOT day here in Oregon,
this seems more like August than July!
Love the sun, though!
Heart Hugs,

    Weather here is dreadful, rain rain rain... but tomorrow there will be more sun hopefully.
