  1. Thanks for the card-making date, it was great to spend time with you and I really love your cards!

    Also...your pictures always turn out way better than mine, I'm going to have to try some different lighting to make mine work, my 'cream' coloured cards always turn out yellow... do you use a flash?

  2. Congratulations! I just wanted you to know that your project will appear on the Yahoo Group Late Night Stamper’s blog finds of the day for Nov. 25. Want to receive your own copy of the blog finds of the day? Join us at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/stampinuplnstampers/
