  1. I love this, Mary! These greens really pop. AND…I remember the first card, too, because I loved that one then. Such a great way to use bits of paper. ♥

  2. Kadie Labadie

    What’s old is ALWAYS new again. TFS.

  3. Love the Tropical Escape. Planning a class for our Card Club with it. One Card Wonder with Swag. Of course I’m doing a ton of prep work! Making about 35 kits with 4 cards each.

  4. Love these pretty cards, Mary. The 4 squares are great for using scraps. Thanks for the inspiration. Have a wonderful day!

  5. I like this a lot. I will be saving this template to use in the future.
