    I was going to do mine today, but I had to work late and it's too dark for photos... {sigh} it'll have to wait until tomorrow.

  4. I looked at this earlier. Very nice, I'm just learning to use copics. They take a bit of getting used to. Your a natural!

  5. Your sidewalk is awesome! You did an excellent job. Enjoyed your card, too. Happy Friday!

  6. Excellent sidewalk. I was wishing you had posted the link. I remember seeing it but I want to try it with some of my sugarnelly stamps. Darling.

  8. Bethie,

    It's always fun to read your Friday favs. Of course your wonderful husband is MY favorite son-in-law and my butterfly thank you card is one of my favs and will go in my treasure box of favorite cards after I have finished displaying it on my picture shrine :)
