  6. Blessed indeed! It's a beautiful sunny day here and I am blessed to be able to enjoy it :)

    You've used the perfect fonts to accompany the large scale die cut and I LOVE the interlocked hexagon/circle pattern. Great design and take on these challenges!

  7. This is really beautiful, Marlena! I love how you used the hexagons in your design, and you ROCKED the CQC colors! This is delightful. :)

  8. Love your fun card, Marlena, you are so right, Sunshine is Sunshine! We are also enjoying sunshine today with the cooler temps. Thanks for sharing your card with us this week at the colourQ.

  9. I'm late in thanking you for adding it to our Word Art Wednesday links last week. I was out of town, and couldn't make the rounds until today, but your creation definitely stands out. Just beautiful!


Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to stop in! ;)
