  9. What a totally precious card! I am loving the colors and the flower embellie too. Congratulations to your niece!!

  10. Hi Glenda!
    I am so glad you went over and got a Saffron Stamp! Isn't she the best. What do you think you are going to do with her...pretty unusual what I did eh compared to what might normally be done....she definately has a typical look and I went as far as I could away from that, as you can see. I'm glad I inspired you to get one! Perfect. Hey, Im in Ontario...It just became New Year's. Happy New Year's Glenda. Love Samara xox
