Hello Monday! Was everyone's weekend restful? TBH mine was a bit crazy on Saturday with the new store but we did fix a few errors and all the packages have been mailed out! I hope you all approve of the new webstore! If you have any suggestions please let me know. I would love to make your shopping experience as pleasant as possible. =) Also a thanks to Rebecca Barlow for pointing our some grammar errors and etc! lol. Thanks!

Usually Monday's are a bit slow for me so I thought that every Monday we could do a little card critique to start of the week. I'll be selecting a card from the gallery every Monday to share and discuss. So class, here is today's card. Tell me what you think/feel about this card.
