  8. Lynn these are all beautiful in their own separate ways. I really like how your ballons turned out. They look like they have texture. I like the 4th one for its softness, #1 for it's metal looking texture and #3 for the butterfly. If I had to choose, it would be difficult.

  9. I just love how these stamps turn out - now that I know how you do it!! I love the longhorn and the valentine heart - great job!
