I have been thinking about you with the earthquake in Japan and then wondering if a tsunami would hit Alaska as it went to the other side of the ocean. This is a cute card! And for our challenge tomorrow I finally got up my courage to use that stamp you sent me from Japan a while back . . . I was always afraid to try to color it! So pretty!
