 Hey Everyone! It's officially Summer and I feel it! I've been busy, busy, busy this month with Mother's Day, Outdoor Vending Events, and preparing my Summer Clothing Line! Which are all great things! :) Today I would like to quickly share with you a card I designed for my sister Zina.

Peace and Much Appreciation, Lecretia
