Tart and Tangy Cards and Gift Box

I love giving gifts of handmade cards. Everyone sends them, and having a supply on hand not only saves time but also money. Store bought cards are so expensive, and I just don't think they are as nice as handmade cards. I use them as Hostess thank you gifts, or add them to birthday presents for that little extra something. I coordinate the cards with the box and try to vary the sentiments. When the retired list of stamp sets came out I was glad to see that Tart and Tangy was not on the list. It has become one of my favorite sets and I use it often.
