Two Hearts…

Many of you know my daughter and son-in-love are stationed in South Korea.  They have been there for 16 months now.  Proof that time doesn’t always fly.

Next month is their wedding anniversary and for their card to arrive on time, it needs to be in the mail a couple of weeks before the actual date.  Today’s post is their card and it will be winging its way to Seoul, South Korea next week…


Any here is how the inside looks…


A mixture of a little bit of elegance with some rustic touches…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


So there.

  1. Love this beautiful card, Billie. I think Pool Party is one of my favorite colors and this design is so pretty. Making happy cards for family is so much fun. I’m sure your son and DIL will love it. The “b-ism” is a hoot. Will this heat wave take a break!!

  2. Oops! I got the relationship wrong. It’s your daughter and SIL. The heat must be getting to me!!Actually, I’m fine as long as the AC works.
