  1. Gorgeous creations, my friend. I just watched Ann's video last night and can't wait to try it. Very cool!!! Was thinking of using a stencil too so that both images will be the same. The cross card is beautiful and I love what you did with that recycled paper. Fabulous beach-y card, wonderful greeting. You have been busy.

  2. Your cards are stunning and so creative, Donna! Everything you make is beautiful and I love the dimension too. The first technique, I need to try. I really like that idea. The cross card is so unique and I love the recycled shells!

  3. Your cards are all so gorgeous and well designed. You do such great work with all those products!

  4. Oh wow that first card is just gorgeous, before reading I thought you had stamped and then embossed it.
    Your cross card is wonderful too, I love the pattern behind the cross and the embossing goes so well with your flourishes around the cross!

  5. Wow! You've been a busy girl! These are fabulous!! I struggle with masculine cards too. Yours turned out perfect. I'm so loving these seaside cards, so brilliantly colored.
