  15. El dahling, let me ask you this: how could you have entered 'too many' challenges for your card not to be accepted? You're beginning to push me right the heck over the edge with your fabulous creations. I'm getting to the point where I'm embarrassed to make cards now....I gave up taking as much time as you so now I just slap an image on some white paper and call it card. Yikes, this is so pretty. I have vellum but I never remember to use. You would I would and you would think I would try to make cards just like you ... but I cant (I'm extremely limited in more ways than one). This is beautiful. Over and out.

  16. El dahling, will you just read what I wrote. Hello. When I look at one of your cards, I loose my mind. That's what I do. I cant even write a sentence that makes sense. Pray for me. Over and out.

  17. This one is extremely gorgeous! I like it A LOT!!!

  18. Such a gorgeous card, well done :) Viv xx

  19. This is such a gorgeous card Ellen, I love the butterflies, they are amazing!

  20. Hi Ellen, the hearts on my tag are a die from Eline Pellinkhof, a dutch designer. You cut them twice and then weaving these together.
    I hope you understand this, my English is not so perfect.
    Hugs, Berlinde
