Oh my, how precious are those lipstick covered critters! Beautiful coloring and embellishments, and I really like the sketch too!

Lipstick helps anyone to look better. This is a cute colorful, fun card, Sue. Love It. It's great that you have that picture of Niagara Falls when it was frozen. In our area we have Narragansett Bay which is about a mile or so across at it's widest point. My Dad told me that one year in the 30's it froze so solid that they were able to walk from one side to the other. I love these pictures and stories.
