  2. Absolutely gorgeous work here, and I just love, that she has also decorated them inside too. I think it´s such a shame, when people create such beautiful work and then just leave them completely plain inside.

  82. I love Stephanie's cards. So different mounted on the larger panel. Very cool. I'm a follower, thanks for a chance to win some goodies. Did you guys know that the wordpress bloggers can not comment using thier WP sign in? For a long time I thought it was Google's Blogger, but they say it's the blog owners who have not allowed comments Something that needs to be okay'd from the admin of this blog. Does that make any sense? Hope this info helps, it very frustrating to keep retyping comments.

  83. I like the card base being stationary and the layer being the part that opens. What a great idea!

  84. So fun and different!
