Hi Melanie, thanks so much for your comment on my challenge card. A Year of Leaves is one of my favorite sets. I'm sorry it's no longer in the catalog but hope it will make a clear comeback.

Hi Melanie, thanks for leaving the comment on my Christmas in July card. It was fun to do and I was really pleased with how the background turned out. I love that Fabulous Flower set and now I have its big brother Pressed Flowers 2 and A Year of Flowers 2. Such fun sets.

Thank you, so much, Melanie for your lovely comment on my offset card. Thank you for the great challenge. I needed it this week. I lost my darling mum last Friday and found that the best therapy was to make a card. I took me to my 'happy place' if only for a few hours. HUGS!!
