  13. Christi,

    It's amazing how different patterns and colors can make such a big difference in the look of cards even though the same sketch is used for both.

    Great cards! Love the contrast of the blue bird with the yellow sentiment strip on the second card. TFS!!!

  44. Christi, I'm so glad that you decided to hop with us! I hope you had fun doing it. Your cards are just adorable - as usual. I've been tearing up the new catalog...not sure there are enough Stamp Clubs left for me to get everything on my wish list (well, without going broke and trading food money for stamp money!). Guess we'll have to just keep going!
