Have a great weekend.



  1. I love all three...but the way you've combined the elements on the third one is fabulous!

  2. Hmmmmm....I think I like the yellow and black one best in this series, Ida. Probably it's because the focal image and sentiment combined are unusual...and beautiful. Great cards---all three of them. I like the "splash of color" idea, always.

  3. I love all three of your cards, Ida! It is not easy to create cards with black and white colors. And you did an AMAZING job!

  4. Ida:

    I like the black and pink one the best. Hoping to start doing cards again. Been home (unemployed) for 4 months now. Time to get crafty.


  5. I think all of them are great, but I agree, I love the bursts of yellow in the third one.
