The are gorgeous, Linda! Love the bow treatment and the way you used that stamp as the focal image on the first card. You've inspired me to pull that one out and play with it. I've rarely used that one. The coloring on the pears is great. For some reason I have a really hard time coloring that image, but you have done a great job with it.
