Hello Friends!
Good evening, almost morning. Went out and picked blueberries this morning and all afternoon made blueberry jam. Found this easy AND delicious jam recipe think I might have to pick more berries and make more jam. Thinking that might make a great stocking stuffer. 
OK enough about jam and onto this card created from the wonderful new Burst of Splendor Collection from Heartfelt Creations.
