Hi: I love your blog, put it in my Outlook as an RSS feed, but only get error messages. I cannot find any place to unsubscribe (and then try to subscribe again, hopefully w/no errors). Pls. help inasmuch as this feed comes up every time I open Outlook.

You have got some adorable cards on here !!! I've been looking for half an hour & my mouth is still gaping open. I love so many of them & this little Queen BD one is just so sweet ... So may I ask HOW do you get that computer sentiment on your card front ? I've printed them on a piece of cardstock & cut them out but this looks a little more difficult. Always appreciate learning something new ...
