stamps: TAC Best Friend Bears-retired

Yeah ok I admit it - the second one is an improvement ;)

I remember when I didnt think stamps had to be coloured and rebelled and did it (ok I was maybe 10 or something!!)

Beautiful work Danni :)

I love this feature!! What a great idea. Its so cool to see the changes. Fun Danni!

Marcia said...

I think they're both great cards!

Heather said...

Yep the 2nd one is better, but if I did not see them together I would not think the first one was bad!!!

I love how you stuck with the same colors and look basically just modernized it.

I really like the bear card Danni!!!

Danni! Wow! That is a crazy huge improvement! I'm not brave enough to show my first cards, you are a brave lady! Look how far you've come, you should be so proud! I'm esp jealous of your coloring!

And thank you so much for the wonderful RAK I received from you! You are so sweet! Thanks for being a generous friend!
