Thank you. Melanie, for your comment on my triple stamp challenge. I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. I know you must be busy creating all your amazing cards, etc. You are such an inspiration to me!

It is down to you that my design is a decent one as I get so many ideas from the things you share. Thanks for the comment and for the challenge this week. It was fun and I was so relieved that I could rescue my card after my cut reopened. That was a kitchen accident though, with scissors believe it or not. Had it been a crafting one I may have had to have stitches as my knife is excessively sharp.

You are so creative and mindful of how we abuse your designs. I saw Coneflower, knowing it was a stretch. So glad you appreciate my attempt.
