...just Barbara said...

Congrats on your one-year blog-aversary!! I LOVE your card and your coloring is stunning!! I was looking at your heaps of marks and wondered in what areas did you add the Ws and where the Ns went. You must have gone back in to add gray shading - the depth is out of this world!! And I know it's simple, but I'm so jealous of your ground - I really love how simple it is yet with shading - brilliant!! I tried to copy your wood flooring on my card but couldn't pull it off. Maybe next time. ;D Thanks so much for being part of the hop - it's been grand! *Hugs
