Boy!  It's a foggy, icy morning here in the mountains.  What could be more appropriate than a fire in the wood stove, a good cup of coffee and great friends as I hunker down over my computer to post my card for Inventory Challenge # 17.

FOUND in an old musty trunk, in a small cottage back in Sassafras Holler, a tag or is it a card from someone special to a lost love.

Slowly I opened the card ............



When what to my wondering eyes should appear  - oh wait, that's a different story!  Please join Danielle,
Christina, Charlene, and Rene as we play "Inventory Challenge 17" !  All comments are gratefully accepted.

Stay safe and warm where ever you are!   Sandy

Excellent job Sandy! I love the rich red and your distressing is fabulous. It looks like it's right out of an old trunk. Your Tilda in the snow globe is wonderfully colored and I love the vintage tag for the sentiment. Well done!
