Love your attention to detail - that is what makes your cards so special - every little place on your cards or projects has something of visual interest, and I always learn new techniques and gain new ideas just by visiting your dear blog. Thank you for so generously inspiring me. hugs, de

OMG Linda, these are absolutely amazing! I love your "flying" duck and the embossed frame is gorgeous, Love the idea of using the DP for the flowers, giving a masculine look, although they are flowers. Must say though the wallet is ingenious! Love the leather-look and all the little "credit" cards! Just awesome!
