Morning Kathie, was away at doctor appts. yesterday.....two for the price of one, yeah! Love them both of course, R/W/B is one of my fave color palettes and your satin hearts on both are so pretty. I love the embossing on his nose, thanks for the tip! Your purple card is so sweet, love him framed in the heart wreath. As always, your choice in papers is yummy. I tried to leave a message on SSW to thank you for the post but blogger wouldn't let me in, still having problems with some blogs. May need to download another browser if this doesn't clear up soon. Hope your week is fabulous, love looking at your wisteria when I come to visit.
