Oh Tracey...you sure surprised me. I never expected another blog hop this year and what a surprise when I opened up my reader this morning. You make such beautiful cards...always totally "my" style and one I would have made if only I was smart enough! Thank you so much for thinking of me!

Hi Tracey! I love that fancy cut stamped images - it looks like a beautiful flower doily! You colored it perfectly to match the card stock and it is sure to make Cathy smile! Oh.. and I love that the one corner is rounded - great detail that caught my eye! You clever girl!

Kim Heggins said...

Tracey...your card is so beautiful! Fabulous choice of colors too, stunning. I am sure Cathy will love this card, it is so sweet and feminine. Like I told Joyce, this will be my next flower set, you two have made incredible cards with it, I can't wait to play along. Have a fun day!

Beautiful card Tracey! This will touh your friend's heart for sure. Such pretty peaceful colors and you did a great job with this floral set!!

Joyce said...

Wow-- I adore this set in those colors. Another one to pin and CASE. I love that this set can be used in so many ways. I have thoroughly examined your card, and must insist that you take back your claim of being unable to do multi step stamping. Seriously? Drop dead gorgeous. So glad you could come to Cathy's birthday party.
