I love sharing the instructions and files for my cards but I do ask that if you use my instructions or files to recreate my card and place it on your blog or somebody else’s blog that you give me the credit for the original design.

Hello Jeannie,
Congratulations on the honor of having your cards shown at CHA! That is such wonderful news. You are doing such a beautiful job using this pens as a part of your creations. I have Once upon a princess but haven't had the chance to use it yet but now I will look for this wonderful tags =)

Also I love how you have the butterfly stamp! It's so great because now with these pens you can personalize stamps =) hahaha and you could make a little one for the enclosure of your envelope too...I guess similar to the sticker feature in Just Because Cards.

I am sure that your step-mom will love this card. Great job!
