    1. Aww this is such a cheerful card! It also looks very crisp.

      I’m going to use a felt circle in the middle instead of cardstock, for a little extra texture. (Plus, I have about a million of those lying around, hehe.)


    2. Mary, I love seeing your inspiration photos and your card creations! It’s a fun way to look at the world 🙂 You are very good at it! Concord Crush is great…so glad it will be around another year.

    3. Nice cards, Mary. Thanks for your one minute to wow tip. I’ve been wondering how that was done.

    4. Your cards are always so bright and fresh looking, I really liked the minute video…..you can learn something everyday!!!
