Welcome to a very wet Wednesday here

Kathie, it is hard to believe there is snow in the mountains there. Wow. We would do anything right now just to get rain. Hopefully, today even though it is the 4th. It has been so dry here. And, there have been so many forest fires. We are heading into the monsoon season here so hopefully, it will be a good one this year.
Your cards are gorgeous. I love both versions. They are beautifully colored. I love both color schemes. I really love all the detail work you have added. The trims, ribbon, etc. they are beautiful.. Have a wonderful time with your family this week.
Hugs, Nancy

Your card are ADORABLE. I love the lace on the orange card. Your coloring on the dress is incredible, and it really stands out in the pink. These cards are just too cute, and as my daughter would say...you would hate to give them away.

Hi Kathie,
Your cards are just darling and I can't get over how real the shoes look on your pink card! We really did have a great time at Disneyland. You should definitely plan a return trip as there are a lot of fun, new things to do!
