  8. Guten Morgen Iris,

    ein traumhaft schönes Kärtchen hast Du da mit diesem knuffigen Motiv wieder gestaltet. Ganz toll!

    Mußte eben so schmunzeln, wie ich die Farn-Blätter bei Deinem Blümchen entdeckt habe, weil es genau die 2 Stanzer sind, für die ich vor ca. 2 Wochen extra bei create-4-fun bestellt hatte, ;)

    LG Kati
