Donna this is too cute! I love that image and the papers you used. The way you embossed the stripes makes it look exactly like a seersucker fabric. I am totally impressed you've already got 30 Christmas cards done! Wish I was that far along! But I'm at least starting them now. :) hugs!

Donna, without a doubt, you are indeed truly a wonderful person. It shows in your work and it shows in the comments you've given us! Thank YOU! Dots! How perfectly cool and cute is this? I love it! The flowers, the ribbon and you dotted the scallop on the border there - how super ingenious! It amazes me how defined your cards are with these creative finds! And the embossing tops it off too! You pick perfect papers to go with the image (always cute there too) and the embellishments - lovely gems; everything so perfectly balanced! YOU are a great inspiration!

Hi Donna, I can't beleive I have missed so many of your card's, I have been a bit nonproductive lately, if that's how you spell it...
How do you do it Girl... fab card after card, I need some lesson's...
I have to say, the retirement card is outrageous, I love it...
I missed my first ever Secret crafter challenge last week but hope to get one done for this week if I can sit still long

I have never watched sex in the city and today at tesco it was on offer for £3 so I am planning to put it on later and do a bit of colouring with a nice glass of something....
