  7. Such a lovely card I love that image. Thank you for visiting my blog I just love wrens too I have a very special painting of a wren painted on a feather, the artist spent many many years learning how to do it from American Indians. Isn't the web such a fantastic place, here I am sending a message to a lovely lady in Texas and I am here in Scotland, uk and we both just love wrens wow it makes my heart sing.

    Also wanted to say THANKS for joining two of my blogs today... I really hope you enjoy them... I will try to join your also.. I am on dial up and it takes a long time to do anything on other blogs.. just took me over 30 minutes to be able to send this message to you.. .dial up is not FUN... but I do love living in the boonies.. so I put up with it..

    The Asian folders you asked about.. They are from a set of Cuttlebug folders.. Called the Asian set... there are I think 8 folders... I honestly can't remember ... but one is prettier than the next.. being a on the Cuttlebug Design Team I better start to learn all this but right now it is late, and it has been a very long day.. and I want to go to BED... yeah... I can actually hear it calling my name... LOL.... Anyway.. If you can't find them on line... write me back and I will find them for you..
    Hope you have a great evening.. and looking forward to seeing more of your cards... and creations...
