Matting Basic A,the big butterfly is from Cherry   Lynn,the smaller ones from S.B. Jewel Flowers and Flourishes.the little arrow I made using the tiny Die from Damask Motifs from S.B..The paper from my stash,the poem is a bit of everything.The Congratulations from S.B.  the small  from one of the labels Die's which I can bring to mind at the moment. I have a different Spelling for Tir  na  Oge ,the one on the card is the Old Gaelic and correct spelling.I put the other spelling on the other one so people would understand.I will not be able to follow blogs etc., for a while as I am going into Hospital tomorow for Surgery and I do not know how long I will be there.

More Red and White and A Question on Blog Etiquette.

Good Afternoon every one in Blog land today another Red and White card,I just have to add the sentiment , yesterday and today's cards are for two friends  of mine who love Red and White..The Question about the  Etiquette is ,when some one leaves a    comment on your Blog do you add a reply???I think it is rude not to reply,but the question is, will the reply be seen by the person you are replying to??? and when you get a e.mail to say there is a comment  on your  Blog ,it is usually "no reply".I am very new to Blogging and all of you who know how it works I would love to see what your advices is.
It is a case of "To Do or Not to Do" that is the Question ( Sorry Shakespeare)
Thank you for visiting .
