I couldn't pass up commenting today on the best air balloon card I've ever seen. Everything about it is perfect from the layout, the paper selections, the creation of hills to the expression and manner of it's display...and the sunburst creation is indeed geenyus at work. I like the Christmas card, too, but can't imagine many men would 'get' it.

Mary Davidson

These are both absolutely awesome cards, Jan! The balloon card is fantastic! Thanks for inspiring!

Cheryl O.

beautiful, as always, Jan! Especially love the macho snowflake!! TFS. :)
