  13. Oh Ginny, this image is do adorable and you have colored them superbly I love how you colored the balloons overlapping each other. I saw your sequins and it reminded me that I bought some months ago but forgets to use them...LOL So, you're saying that my trademark was my stitching, huh! I don't know, I just fell in love with stitching since I saw the very first card with it for the first time. I'm glad I knew how to sew curtains (at least) that helped me. One day, you need to try it...LOL God bless yah!
