  2. Fabulous boy card. Great image and I love the sentiment. hugs, Pat k x

  3. Hi Vannessa a really stunning card and I love your colouring and your whole card design. hugs Shirleyxxxxx

  4. This is the kind of card I need to practice and make. Cards that show off the image to it's best. By making this image larger, you've made him the center of attention. This is awesome and your coloring is so great that it makes this image look like it's going to come right off the page. Love your layout for this, too. What a wonderful guy card! Hugs, Gail
