Ohhh Deanne, you sure are going to be missed. You have been a wonderful part of our DT. Thanks so much for all you have done. I love your Lucy card especially with her bright red hair. Such a wonderful bright flower to set everything off.
Hugs to you, and hope you stop back often.

Gorgeous, I can feel the heat from here. We are finally getting sun to. I hope you enjoy the day. Popping her hair up was a great idea, and you always match the colors so well.
