I love both of your cards Jessica. The tea cup pocket card is such a great idea, I love sharing tea with those who can't sit and share a cup and scrap together. I am with you on the dress forms too. That card is just beautiful. Laura did a great job in designing both of those die. They make such beautiful cards! Thanks for sharing!
