  2. I love all your projects. I made goody bags for thanksgiving to give some love to my children's teachers. TFS

  3. This is a great sketch, but I flipped it to fit the image better. I also used column one of the tic tac toe grid. It is a Christmas card - one that will be sent to a relative, later.

  4. My card is #11
    I will send it to USA to my OLD University friend
    Old means I knew her since year 2000
    It is her birthday card :)
