  1. Donna, these are both beautiful Love, Hugs and Prayers cards. Both backgrounds are perfect for the designs. Remember the saying "warm fuzees"?? That's what my first thought was.

  2. LOVE these. Your backgrounds are fabulous, as are your designs. I LOVE the yellow and gray together. Think I will use it for an MSC challenge. The stenciled background really make the focal pop. And the shaker one is super cute too. Both of these are simply gorgeous, great inspiration here.

  3. You are back again crafting like it was pre 2020. Each one is so fancy. Can't buy those at Hallmark. I love the gray with the softer colors of pink and yellow. You are my Gina K inspiration!

  4. So much eye candy on these two cards. Love them both!! Great stenciling and lovely designs. Come on spring!

  5. Both are so beautiful. Wonderfully designed and with gorgeous colors.

  6. These are lovely, I like the shaker with the bird at the base and the way you did the sentiment off to the side.
    Your bouquet on the second is so pretty, love the coloring and how you used the stencil on just part of the background.
