Thanks Melanie for the sweet comment on my Fall Flowers card! The technique I saw on SCS yesterday called "Stamp Etching" I wanted to give it a try. Theirs was black and white I just added color. I had a lot of fun with it but I always have fun with your stamps!  Thanks! Have a great day!

Thank you for your comment on my Fabulous Frame Iris card. I always appreciate it when a designer takes the time to view and comment on my cards. In case you haven't figured it out I LOVE the Fabulous Frame and the Iris.

Thanks Melanie, for the lovely comment on my Big Birthday card. It seemed strange making a big card after so many A-2s and all the mini cards I've been doing lately. I always appreciate you taking the time to stop and comment. It means a lot! Have a great day!

I was thrilled to be able to put my Wee Tees card up on Facebook as it was a tough delivery and finally had to go with a c-section, but all are doing great. We are so happy and proud to have a granddaughter join our four grandsons.
