  1. I really like all your cards. It looks like you inked the scene on the Olivia card with multiple colors - it came out very nice. Love your embellishing on the Hooligans card, too. Great work :)

  2. All of them are great cards. My favorite is definitely the silver embossed Christmas scene. BTW, the photo just doesn't do that one justice - it is so shimmery and beautiful "in real life."

  3. Michelle, Please link to my blog! You are linked to Erin's and no one is coming to my blog : ( Thanks Terrie
