  3. Carol, your cards are really cute..I love your tree on the first one..His eyes especially and the border on your second one. I think it is wonderful that cards can be made so inexpensive and yet look expensive. Card companies are charging entirely to much for cards these days. ANyone would love to be a recipient of your cards! Nice job!
