Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous Mindy! You've done an excellent job on this one - in spite of the bright color of pink! Hey, it's still pink! Actually Tilda is adorable with nice bright spring-y color and I love the glitz and glimmer you added to her shadow area! Sorry that the munchkins are so sick! Ya! Kids at home can be un-nerving! Hope they all pull through and get back to school and NORMAL soon!
Hugs,
Barb

Hello there;0) Beautiful card! The colors are great and you did a great job using them.
Something crazy is going around everywhere. The kids have been dropping like flies at my kids' school. Lysol everything and keep the sheets clean so it does not spread all over again.
I texted you earlier about the Anaheim Scrapbook Convention...it is the 27th? Talk to you soon;0)


Your friend,
