That's beautiful, Cathy! That bird in the envelope graphic is one of my new favorites from Karen. Your embroidery is wonderful. It's that touch that makes me wish I did have one of those new sewing machines that does embroidery. Maybe for Christmas! : )

Is worth 2 red seals! That way you can channel red wax seals on the envelope or darling seals, the mammal :) Ok, that's goofy, but I love playing! I love birds, love the color of this envelope. XO, Kelly
