Thank you everyone for visiting and giving me my first 100. I hope there will be more to come.
I look forward to your comments and hope you will follow my blog.

This is a card I did a few weeks ago and thought I would share it with you. I received these images from a dear friend in Canada. I love them. They are from the High Hopes collection. I used few Copic markers for at the time I had a limited supply of them. The map was crushed and them smudged with ink. I hope you like it.

Grrrrrr....I am so close to that 100 Visits I can taste it!

Another friendly card to look at. I received these images of Under the Stars, Stampin Up! from an RAK-wish member on SCS. I love that group and these images. It was to fun to do. I used Embroidery Floss for the wrap around and I impressed the gal I was stamping with. Give it a go. It works great.
