Keep In Touch Cards

Through the world of scrapbooking, I've been lucky enough to meet and work with wonderful ladies around the world. I love sending little thinking of you or thank you notes around the globe.

You can easily translate English into a variety of languages using the babelfish website. I referred to it for help to create these cards to send to friends far away!
