Hi Kathie! I hope you are doing well and that they weather isn't getting too chilly for you yet. It's been pretty gloomy here but the grass is almost green and some of my perennials are starting to pop.

Your cards this week are full of color - beautiful! The orange card really caught my eye - love her rain jacket!

These two cards are simply stunning Kathy. Your coloring has awed me once again. I thought at first they were precolored digis and then my mouth dropped when I looked more closely and realized it was your talent pure and simple! Awesome job on these - gorgeous work!
