Great cards! I love the first with the nativity scene. Thanks for the chance at some great candy too!

Lee Mae said...

Beautiful, beautiful cards, Pam! I have that Basic Grey paper from your first card and I was just eying it last night. I like the second card best, though, because of the variations from the sketch. I always learn so much from your cards, and the extra embellishments to that card just make it so special. Great job as always!
