    1. Yup! That’s a WOW card. Stunning. Congrats on having one of your creations featured again in the magazine!! Love the tone of red card stock and with the gold … just stunning. Thank you for showcasing another card of this style. I know they take extra time to make and that you’re very busy with work, travel and other things so much appreciated. In case there’s not another opportunity before THE day: here’s wishing you and your loved ones and the people of Ukraine a very special Merry Christmas, a happy holiday season and all the very best in the coming new year. Hugs, thanks and appreciation to you for all you do for the card making community and for all the postings of your special creations.
