"Butterfly, bird, and bee agree . . . "

"Butterfly, bird and bee agree--"
that's from an episode of Mr. Rogers.
I used to be in love with Mr. Rogers.
I figured I'd either marry him, or Captain Kirk . . .
No, I'm not kidding.

ANYWAY, my in-laws have a print shop, and I
tend to get some of their cast-offs, like this
nice black cardstock.  AND some nifty little
envelopes, into which this cute card happens
to fit quite nicely.

These sweet summery images are from the
Vintage Illustrated Birds set, and Nature Medallions

Happy Sunday!
P.S.--there is crayon on the black cardstock,
but the images are stamped on paint monoprinted background paper



Challenges!
Dream Valley Challenges--things with wings!
Fashionable Stamping--nature
