  15. Okay Carole, call me dumb. I get your posts via e-mail for a long time now. I couldn't find a "comment" area on the e-mail until TODAY! Then I found out if I click on your blog name, it takes me to your blog. I am so sorry for not figuring this out sooner so I'd be able to leave you little hugs!

    This card is fabulous. I adore brown and blue as it is a soft and pleasing color combination. And this image is just so darn cute. My friend, you know me and my style, so this card with the lace and flowers is definitely a winner in my book. Beautiful card, and may beautiful cards that I've been seeing and didn't leave a comment due to my lack of technology!
