Totally stunning cards and fabulous choice of papers for the paper piecing, would love a claret dress just like that and the gorgeous summer top with matching turn ups is going to be all the rage this year

Both cards are absolutely gorgeous Mary Lou. I especially love how you've shaded the paper pieced dress and the beautiful design of the card.

The pastel coloring is so beautiful and that's one of my favorite images.

Hope you weekend is one of the best ever. "Hugs" Carol
