I do love country cards and this one is perfection, the combination of the kraft, gingham and lace is terrific and your coloring of the image is outstanding, LOVE it!

LOVE THIS!!! But, this isn't the first time you've done this to me, Esther. It's all your fault! (LOL) When I saw this card, I just HAD to go and buy a few things for myself. In all honesty, however, that's exactly what a DT member is supposed to do - and that's to inspire us to want to purchase what you've used. I just had to give you a hard time; and you know I'm only kidding. It's my own fault that I can't stop buying cute things. If my hubby knew how much YOU inspire me to buy new things, he'd try to find a way to block me from your blog (kidding again, of course). You really do inspire me, and it's always FUN being inspired and buying new things. I'm sure it won't be the last time. If these companies would stop making such adorable new things, we'd all be just fine with what we already have. But...they just keep coming up with things we simply "can't live without". Sorry for giving you such a hard time, but I couldn't resist. Thanks for the inspiration. I hope you're having a blessed week.
