  1. Beautiful! Great job on the Pemberley bonus project cards. CTMH ROCKS!

  2. I really love it! Beautiful cards. :o)

  3. I really like how your bird turned out. I was torn on stamping on mine or not because I didn't want the ink to bleed or get smeared. I may have to go back and stamp on him carefully.

  4. smart, smart project! Bonus projects are so neato- thanks for sharing.

  5. Again, I would have never have thought of stamping the wood shapes...thanks for the great ideas!
