I ate dinner at Cracker Barrel with my daughter last week. There was a sign on the wall with a sunflower on a label. I copied that look and added a checkered border. That is a border stamp from Christmas Music. Good luck on the hop!

This BEE likes the Bee & sunny card. Like Cracker Barrel. Not eaten at one in awhile. We have a restaurant, String Bean, that has great homemade comfort food and we eat there.
