Marilyn said...

This card is exquisite! Love the image and the sparkle plus that layout is wonderful. That is also a fab piece of lace.
Way to go with not smoking... it gets easier every day. The urge never completely goes away - I still get it but it's a fleeting thing... you think about it and then poof... it's gone so I think that means it's no longer a craving, just a thought.
