So sorry I have been MIA - major computer problems! My fav laptop is in the rehab hospital - had a bunch of problems and is getting nursed back to health (I hope). I had to dig out my old desktop but I am starting to love it again too!

Now on to your fabulous card! Wow - perfect colors, super cool card shape, perfect use for cheese cloth (I have to go get me some), and those are some of the prettiest butterflies I have ever seen on a card. This is stunning Sue. I have missed checking in with you often - your cards are so wonderful. Hugz!

Carol Hurlock said...
