Ok, well, the cards I started weren't exactly lemons. What they were is more aptly described as "not finished in time for the holiday I intended them for." Oops. Life got in the way. I had created 50 bases for a Valentine card. Valentine's Day came and went and they sat. Bad me. So I came up with Plan B & got busy while watching a Criminal Minds Marathon this long weekend!

They are now thank you notes I'm sending to my customers.  I'm tickled with the results and very happy to have a solid chunk of thank you cards on hand now.

And my apologies to anyone who should have received a Valentine's Day card from me. Place an order and you'll still get one, LOL!
