  1. Again you have tackled the very difficult cards with such aplomb Lynn. They are thought provoking and lovely!

  2. Simply stunning, Lynn! That watercolor look is gorgeous!! Thanks so much for playing along and helping us celebrate!

  3. Both are so pretty Lynn - but the colors really added a lot to this gorgeous image. So lovely.

  4. OMGosh, Lynn this is SPECTACULAR! I saw your first card, and thought "HOW is she going to work the other colors in to that???" and you ROCKED IT!!! Absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for helping us celebrate!

  5. Gorgeous cards and the coloured one is spectacular! Cathy x

  6. Both cards are absolutely fantastic! The colors and coloring of the second card is stunning!

  7. Definitely drawn to the 10 minutes more one! Great job with the color challenge on that one!

  8. That lighthouse is awesome. Glad you showed it in a monochromatic style as well as the lovely colors in the sky of the second one. When time is a factor, you have shown it is just as beautiful in one color.

  9. Oh be still my heart, this is an absolutely stunning representation of God's beauty - both naturally and in the colors of His rainbow! I love them both equally - the first one with it's simplicity in elegance and naturals, and the second one for it's burst of color! LOVELY, Lynn!

  10. I just adore your 10+10 cards!!! The first one is always so pretty - and then the second one blows my mind. Love the lighthouse....makes me want to travel to the New England area.

  11. Oh my, what a wonderful lighthouse stamp. Your second card is especially gorgeous with that spectacular background.
