Hi El, thanks so much for your lovely comment on my card. I do like that postage frame fussy cut. If you try it, don't use Gina's heavy weight CS. It really cramped my hand.

Thank you, El, for your sweet comments on my daisy silhouette card. I really appreciate it!

Thank you for the comment on my card with balloons.  I appreciate each comment left.  Your 6 X 6 card is a beauty.  What a neat creative way to help the center where you work.  I know the residents really enjoy your work.
