Dawn S. said...

Great projects. I love the purple and green card!

Judy Woodland said...

FABULOUS cards, my dear. Love what you have done with the foils. And your tip about foiling right when you get your supplies is genius. Sometimes having to haul out the laminator keeps me from doing the foiling. I'm definitely going to be doing that. Thanks for the great tutorial too. A simple but elegant Valentine. I'm CASEing!!!

Kim Salito said...

D.Ann C said...

Shiny purple and green just makes my heart happy!

Annalisa Young said...

My favorite part of these cards is how you take the time to match the inside. It's just that much more special when there's some unifying theme throughout, and you used the strips of foiled card perfectly. I think my favorite was the turquoise one, just because I will always love a blue card, but the one that surprised me the most was the combo of lilac and jelly bean green. Not two colors that I thought I would have enjoyed, but I really like how they turned out on your card. Thanks for sharing your great ideas with us!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Bev Chapman said...

Alaska .Kris said...
