Hello! This one may be short and sweet. :) I'll be back in awhile with more to say.

Chrissy,
Your cards are gorgeous. I am so glad I don't have to choose between the 2 of them. Did you color the flower center on the bottom one? It is cold here today too. -3.5. Not a clue what the windchill factor is. Don't want to know. LOL
