Linda, I have looked through all of your peeks today and I honestly can't pick a favorite. Tell me how you can use my very favorite colors for every card??? Of course, my favorite colors change depending on which card I'm looking at. :-) The soft, mellow rainy day card, or the bright and cheery purple and orange card, or the gorgeous fall colored card. Sigh. I'm so glad you're feeling better and creating again. I just love your style!!
