  1. What a fun card, Darlene! Great design!

  2. This is such a great card. I would never have thought of doing bowling pins. You did a fabulous job on this card, I love it!

  3. Fab card, Darlene! Love the red and white combo and the embossed background. Wow, how wonderful to be able to get around and visit my fav blogs again. I feel like I've been missing for a year! :-D

  4. Such a fun card Darlene - love red and white together, it always looks so crisp and fresh :)

  5. What a fantastic design and I totally agree about what a challenge the two colours can be. I know someone in particular who would just love that card, perhaps I just might have to buy that one off you. Love it!

  6. Darlene, you designed a darling card! Love the red/white combo, the image, and the embossing especially! And we do bowl on league--which is a way to get out of the desert heat in the summer, for sure! Great job! :^)


Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your wonderful comments, I really look forward to each and every one of them!!
