Thanks for that too Mama!! Karen sent this RAK to me for a March swap.... new papers to play with and these AWESOME hanafuda magetic pin holders... the holders are great for me to pin up important notes to my filing cabinet... and she made this WONDERFUL card... ugh, the pix didn't really capture the embossing, but she used a embossing folder from SU! and added rhinestones to the middles... simple and very elegant... Thank you so much Karen for all of the goodies!! (i did order that embossing folder, hehe).... and this bunch of sweetness is from a local sister in heart, Colleen! the card on the right along with the sweet treats in the middle was a RAK for Vday... and the card on the left that i ADORE (yes, because of the monkeys) is my bday card... wondeful, wonderful gifts... oh, i don't have a pix but she sent me my bday present waaaaaaay before my bday.... and that was a HUGE surprise...
