Thanks for joining me again today and for all the lovely uplifting comments on my last two projects, it truly means so much to me to know that you are all out there appreciating my creations. I try my best to return the favour each time and visit your blogs too but time often gets the better of me and I get there a little later than I would like.
So thanks again and see you soon,

These 2 DI colors really created such a perfect fall look to your card. This is a beautiful sentiment and the dies are lovely to show it off too. The black mat around the white frame of the embossed mat really set off the rich color as well. The tiny little ribbon was quite lovely as a finish trim - like this one lots! TFS & Hugs

This card is so lovely. So many things to comments on. Firstly \I love the 3 strips of the ribbon. I like ribbon and twine or cord but usually forget to use it! IU have lots of that fine ribbon like you looks great in the rows of three! Brilliant idea.

Second...I love the layered dies, especially the way the top one is like a frame with brads attaching it.

Your sentiment really takes the spotlight with your lovely design!

Another beauty that I missed!
Try not to worry that you don't always return visit - we all know life gets in the way or for us a lot of health issues. I try to get back to my regulars but I hope they understand when I cant.
Love the colours you have used - so very spicey - reminds me of lovely hot summer days Karen x
