Beautiful, Linda! Those flowers are just gorgeous - must have taken forever to fussy cut them!

Wow, you must have been really close to the epicenter of that earthquake - how crazy was that? I'm thanking God that the hurricane missed Miami and praying for those in it's path. It's been quite a wild week, huh? Glad to know you are okay!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Linda, you've colored those flowers just right, and there's such dimension and shadow with them, I love it. The soft green background you created is also gorgeous, as are your laces. And I'm sorry your garage floor cracked some more -- we've had cuh-razy weather here in the East, haven't we??

Patricia St Martin said...

Linda, Sorry you have no internet at home, hope things are somewhat better. Pretty scary having a earthquake and then a hurricane all in one week. Just love the way you colored your flowers and the 3D look is stunning not sure what is in the middle but it looks great. You take care.
Hugz, Pat
