This is ONE fantastic piece of elegant card craft, sweet, classy scrap-sister-o-mine! I love the balance and excellent use of "open space!" {SUCH a challenge for lil' me!} FABULOUS!

P.S. Might have to follow you on that recipe! I got a crock pot for Christmas and I'm SWEARING to get busy! Saw that gal on Good Morning America the other day - she's so sweet! I have a friend who knows her, IRL, etc. WHAT A COOL SUCCESS STORY! Love it! Thanks for the suggestion!
