I LOVE it Sandy! Some of my favorite stamps ever and you did them up beautifully! WOW! Fabulous coloring and creating! I know the hours that went into this but worth every second! BIG smile zooming your way!

Linda Palmer said...

FABULOUS card Sandy! I love all your cards but this one is so cool as well as beautiful..Sounds like she loves it. Yes, today is my birthday and thanks for the happy bday wishes. I've had a great day today. Going to go to Durant, OK in the morning for a family reunion.
Yes, I have finished the book. It took me awhile to get used to the back and forth but I loved it. It had a good message and was entertaining and downright good story. I agree, best yet. Another great card to add to my list of fav's. I love all PB images.
Now I am ready to start the greats and grands Christmas cards. At least it gives me something to do instead of watching TV all day.

Wow, that sentiment alone would say it all, it's beautiful! The card is over the top. Beautiful coloring, inside and out and filled with all the tiny little "Sandy details" that make it perfect! I saw the comment that your friend loved it, too, that's so wonderful.

Hope you have a fabulous and relaxing weekend!

Oh, I haven't started the book yet, yikes! I'm really trying to finish a book my friend recommended and struggling, so I should just move on. Hope to start this weekend! Looking forward to chatting with everyone again!
