Thank You

Jim and Lynn, our wonderful neighbors, gifted me with an extraordinary variety of lovely papers – everything from Asian text on very old  tissue, to wallpaper samples, to a lovely handmade Indian piece.  These are not new and they all look like they have some real history attached to them.  Naturally I had to put a card together with a couple of them right away . . .

The two papers used on this card are wallpaper samples and they have a soft feel but still with a very sturdy heft to them – just right for layering.  I don't normally use very many pre-printed papers, but I will happily make an exception with these.  I'm keeping them within arms' reach of my worktable and am so looking forward to finding creative ways to use them . . . stay tuned for future looks!
