  1. Beautiful cards! I don’t have many flower stamps so I will be getting these! Love hops because I find so many new great card makers to follow! Love the release.


  2. You made such stunning cards! And so many of them! I love the large green house card-it is such a fabulous card, from the bright inside coloring of the house to the beautiful background with the die cut leaves on top and bottom.


  3. Lovely cards! I especially like the butterfly card. The colors you used are beautiful and the technique for the butterflies turned out nicely.
