    Congratulations Marlene on your upcoming blogaversary. I check your blog everyday for some inspiration. Your coloring techniques are absolutely stunning, and you’ve gotten me to use Distress inks more in my coloring. I will put a link on my sidebar so even more people can come view your beautiful creations, and thank you for showing us your cards……you’ve inspired me not only in the coloring, but in purchasing many rubber stamps in the last few months. Hubby is not too pleased, but oh well…it’s worth it, it keeps me happy.

    Also want to thank you for the opportunity to win this wonderful blog candy. Here’s to 2009 and more creations by yourself. WTG Marlene.
