  1. Hi Lilian, that cold seems to be getting everyone. Good news is the cold goes fairly quickly, bad news is that it leaves a cough that seems to linger! Great desk and cards. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #8 xxx

  2. Very nice cards. I especially like the stamps in the first one. I'm wondering what brand the stamps are that you used?
    Thanks for dropping by earlier too :)

  13. Sorry to hear you've got a cold, Lilian, and I hope you enjoyed spending time with your friend. Your cards are lovely and the frostiness is so realistic it almost had me shivering! Thank you for your sweet comment and your kind words - glad you like my efforts. Still a lot of work to perfect the technique of drawing shiny stuff but I'm determined to master it as I've struggled with it for years.

    Happy WOYWW,
