I came here to sign your guest book and to see what you are up to. Still having trouble??

This card is so cool...I saw a teapot the other day with a cardinal on it and I thought, wow, that stamp set would make a cool teapot card!

Your card is just gorgeous! Nothing prettier than a red cardinal....especially on a wonderful card like this!

Let me know if I can help anymore. Hopefully you have not had time to figure it out and will be able to!
