Unknown said...

Candy, your Tilda card is beautiful. Very sweet! Thanks for commenting on my blog. As far as the cross, I guess it's because my father was minister of 40 years and don't know where my ideas come from. My husband said I don't know where you get your ideas, hmmm I don't either, I just sit down usually blank, then it comes to me. Or I'll be sitting doing something else and then an idea comes to me, sometimes they work and sometimes they don't :O)

RoseC said...

Your card is beautiful and your image is exceptional! It was a pleasure to see your work.
