  1. This card is absolutely beautiful. Going to my favs, may make for next year’s Christmas card since I have not used this set yet. Thanks

  2. Eeeek, shriek in horror. . . . . where or where is your beloved pinterest pin that you so thoughtfully desplayed at the top of each of your artwork pieces? I am utterly lost now. . . please advise on this matter.
    Awaiting your reply,
