Trendy Tuesday – Robots
by Katherine Elliot
Easy to be inspired checking out all the very pretty Valentine cards that were featured on blogs and magazines this month. Many were fancy & frilly with pink, red, and a variety of other colors and trends we”ve featured on Trendy Tuesday. But some less frilly cards drew my attention this year, and I have to say, they were a fresh surprise. Many of these cards featured robots. A robot theme revives my inner geek, and just makes me smile. I hope you”ll smile, too.
