Hi Mary Lou,
I just wanted to say thank you so much for your wonderful tutorial . I'm new to card making and hadn't made an easel card yet. I followed your instructions step by step and I think my card turned out almost as cute as your awesome design. You made it so easy for a newbie to follow along with. :-)
Really BIG Hug,
