...a satisfied me. :) Something about those colors just clicks with me - I always have so much fun making cards with that combo...I think something about them soothes and relaxes me.

Don't know if you can tell, but the 'of you' is embossed here - love Versamark!

Yummy flowers from Viola Mahr...

Found this button in my stash that matched the blue in the gingham perfectly. :)
