  44. I always enjoy watching your videos & learning something from them. The plaid backgrounds you made so quickly look super behind each one of your cards. Love the way you incorporated the same colours on the image you were focusing on the front. I've got my eye on the Voices in My Head, the Landscapes dies & the Lil' Squatch stamp set. Such a cool release. Thanks Ardyth.
