Sneak Peak at June

I can’t believe June will be here tomorrow and this month can be a busy one for celebrations.  One celebration is Father’s Day on  June 21st or maybe not. I think of June traditionally as Wedding Month.  For me this is the case and hence a card is called for to celebrate the event.  Also, birthdays are always being celebrated.  So I am going to give you a sneak peak of some cards coming up. In the coming weeks you will see instructions how to make these cards.
