Oh my goodness, these cards are beautiful and they are small enough that I wouldn't have to agonize for hours over how to decorate them.

I love Arlene's idea to turn the card upside down. There's so much dimension in both cards today.

I do love the versatility of tags and these ATC's are great. Love the beautiful Valentine and Easter tags; thank you for the inspiration!

I love that they are not "just square or rectangle," but have softer edges. And these little pieces of art are just lovely; so dreamy. Thank you for the inspiration G45.
