Kathie, what a fabulous color combo. I love it! Adding the glossy accent to your ribbon on the present really makes the image pop. I love how you have colored up your image. She is so stinkin cute!! I hope you are able to stay warm....It is so hard sometimes to think you are going into winter when we are going into summer. We have had beautiful weather here. The temperatures have been perfect.
