Your cards are always gorgeous!
Kelli, on Show and Tell there's a lady named Gracie who always makes a comment on my S&T, but I can never get my comments to her to work! Is there someway you can contact her to tell her this? I see she only had about 5 comments. I think she is from Italy. I would like her to know there's something blocking people replying to her.
Thanks for all of the lovely pictures you always post! I enjoy coming home each day and checking your blog to see your "Show and Tell" or "Papercraft" of the week. Thanks for giving me something to look forward to!
The cards are gorgeous! I bought a little kit to try them around Christmas time, but got too busy to do them! I hope to do it this year! You do a great job!
Oh, I LOVE your handmade cards! ALl of them!! If I could choose, I would pick something for Easter to gift to my family- like the bunny gift tags. Anyway, thanks for sharing!!
