Good morning Tracy,

Sorry to be sooooooooooo late getting here, story of my life this week !

Two really super cards, the image on your Stampalot one is coloured beautifully and I love the rich colours of her dress along with the lace which reflect picture perfectly.

The image on your Penny Black and More card is coloured so delicately with lovely shading and you know how much I love poinsettias.

I hope you have a good week, things should get a bit back to normal this week I guess.
