    You are so very talented, but I think I’ve told you that. Love the card. I finally have all of the Everyday Heros so I’m getting real busy. The fun starts now! But I would love to add your stamps to my collection!

    I love it, I love it, I love it, I love it, I LOVE IT!
    How do you do it? You’re quite the most amazing card artist I’ve come across and I seem to love everything you make. I fear that we must have been seperated at birth and this is why all your artistic wonderments speak to my heart. Either that, or you’re just too incredible, plain and simple. Either way .. I love it all.
    (email you later today … Nothing exciting going on – I’ve been wrapped up in medical appointments – just boring stuff).

    Kathy I really like the way you are giving your directions now – it’s like following a good recipe for cooking. Very thorough and what a nifty card with beautiful embellishments and colors.

    beautiful card, love the flowers and how they coordinate with the die colour. . The square brads set on an angle and the anchor button are wonderful details.

    Lovely card Kathy and the mixture of copper and silver add to the feel of it. The Newspaper stamp is really great and I can see why you are loving it. X
