Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!!



  1. These are both so pretty. Love the stitched hearts and the silhouette couple is darling.

  2. Thank you...the stitched hearts are so cute and the "older couple" well lets just say I'm looking into the future

  3. El dahling, what beautiful cards! You say easy, I say too difficult. Love all the embellishments, too. BTW, I tried the gesso and yes, you can use your copics to color on that as well as prisma pencils. You ... you are always the teacher. Hugs and love. Over and out.

  4. Two beautiful cards. The hearts are so cute, and that couple makes a nice anniversary card.

  5. Beautiful cards, I especially love the hearts. I hope you are doing well talented lady! Take care, Shirleyxx

  6. Beautiful bg you made and I love the hearts. Two gorgeous cards.


Thank you for your comments, I read and appreciate each one - you make my day!
