Melanie, Thank you for stopping by my Gallery and leaving such lovely comments.

I LOVED and sort of copied that Peek a Boo card, as you saw.  What a creative mind you have, my friend.  I HAD to make a card, and probably many more like that!

I adore your Frame stamp, and the Fillers.  I make so many cards with that.  Thanks for sharing your fabulous self, and all those wonderful ideas, with us!  LOL

Melanie, Thanks!! For the kind comment on my "Fight" card and for the new Fab Holiday Frame! It's not even out yet and ideas are already blooming. I have to wait until November to order it so I'm sure hoping GKD doesn't run out.  :) Have a great day!

Thanks Melanie for the lovely comments on my Falling Leaves challenge cards. You're so sweet to take the time! The CASE one was my first water coloring and was so fun following your directions. On the Fall Thanks one I sure learned about what happens to stamp pad ink when you add to much water as well as the type of paper I should use with watercolors. LOL  Thanks for your videos. I learn so much with each one!  Happy Stamping!
