  85. I actually watched this yesterday morning at my son's house, but couldn't get my phone to acknowledge my identity! I love this card, and the pops of red are the perfect touch! I don't see other cardmakers using gel pens this way much, but it's one of my favorite ways to add just a little glittery goodness and color at the same time! Thanks so much.

  107. You are so right about there always being that one person you forgot. This card is perfect just as you said. It looks as though you didn't forget them because there's so much work on their card, you just hadn't gotten their card to them in a timely manner. It's a win-win! Thank you for sharing but more importantly for being a sponsor of Taheerah's wonderful Advent Calendar.
