Now I will have to retake some of my photos as I still can’t figure out how to change the size of the…

On someone’s blog they used the Tart & Tangy strawberry and made it a chocolate covered strawberry. I thought how clever is that.…

This was the last card we made. I really don’t like the color combo, but Lynne said, “Oh just do it”. So I finished the card, but I don’t like it. I don’t like the way it closes…
