  5. What a beautiful card and thank you for the explanation you wrote with lovely humor;) You helped to remember me to use the inc again for colouring the images instead of the pensils always.

  6. Unbelievable! You know how you will often think of something and without much delay, it will show itself to you in some way or other? Well, I've been 'watching' this stamp set on Ebay for some time, and it's about to expire and I've been pondering whether to buy it. Not three minutes before seeing your card, I had been staring at that stamp thinking how perfect it would be for a 'red hat society'-type card, and wondering what other colours would look good!!! Thanks for answering my question! And with such style! lol

    What a great card!

    Hugs,
