I have learned so much from the coloring on your cards. I am in awe. I am looking forward to all the rest you send. Maybe I should just start a notebook with all your scruptious cards in it. 🙂
    Blessings on your 2nd Anniversary. May you have another 50 years of being an awsome blogger and stamper.
