because i love you

2 almost identical cards with different sentiments using sue wilson's brilliant original design.
i love this teal coloured card.
i used tim holtz' horologie background stamp on my cards, and 2 different couture creations embossing folders.
i was thrilled to see my cards in the window of the charity's shop today!!

thinking if you today

2 almost identical cards designed by sue wilson

i love the background on these cards ... justrite victorian tile stamp
i omitted the pearl bling embellishments that sue used on her cards ... its a little pricey for me to use it on these cards but i do use it occasionally on extra special ones!
can you see the difference? 
one is blue and one is mauve of course!
i just delivered 24 cards to my charity today so again my shelves are empty!!  more crafting needed to refill them for the next batch!
