I just love elegant cards that look like they were a lot of work but were super simple. Don’t you love how those images just POP right out with such beauty? Absolutely gorgeous! The addition of the Subtles embossing folder makes these cards off-the-charts amazing though!

QUOTE OF THE DAY – “There is no limit to the power of loving.” — John Morton

What a beautiful quote today! Love is such a powerful thing. There just seems to be so much hate in the world. Just image if we all took one day, just ONE, to only show love to all who are around us. Wow! I would love to live in that day. Love someone today. Send them a card and tell them how special they are. It’s a great way to showcase the power of love.

I hope you all have a wonderful day today! I look forward to stamping with you again on Saturday!
