fabulous Paula! I love the bright red and gold on the first one, but my favourite is the second - just love that pine cone stamp! I will have to look out for that when Glenda has things up and running again. My copic pens arrived today, not all I ordered but I'm pleased with all except one of them - and then it's only because there's hardly any difference between it and the colours either side. I keep meaning to do a write up of my favourites and the Sketch pens I really couldn't do without and those that aren't 'necessary'. Have you seen that Copic are bringing out more shades in the Ciao range? Some absolutely essential shades, but others I haven't even got as Sketch pens so will wait for them to come in as Ciaos and save a few pennies.
gotta rush now and risk the weather to deliver some cards to friends and neighbours.
love and hugs,

Wonderful cards. I do love the red one with that gold. The embossed image is perfect. I do like the brayering on the second one though and the colors are very pretty. You have done a perfect job. TFS
