Hi Margie! Your cards are all so beautiful! I especially like the dimension on the tea time card. Love the use of photo corners...what a fabulous idea! I have a ton of those that are just begging for attention. Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing your creativity with us :-) Blog follower #261! Already following in Instagram (michele_smith2016). This year I will be working for The Angel Card Project. They provide a list of people that need a little extra joy at Christmas and I send a personal card to as many as I can. It is getting difficult with the postage increase (grrr) There is usually 300+ names and it's such a wonderful organization. I hope 2019 is extra sweet to you!
