Swap - Madonna Inn - Room 191

I love the Madonna Inn!  This is room 191, Misty Rocks.  Ideal for honeymooners because of it's feeling of seclusion.  Misty Rocks is done in lush green colours. The wet rock effect and green colour scheme makes one feel in touch with nature. 

That's one way of putting it. :)

Finland - Silence!

This official card from Ansku also happens to be one of my favourite cards! Thank you for the great card and the wonderful postage stamp!

I love front doors so this card is neat in that I get to see the front door from the inside of Edward Hopper's house.  Very cool. Thank you Michele!
