        Oh my heavens. All four cars are just GORGEOUS! I love the wood background in the first one, so atmospheric. And that tear away stencilling looks so pretty on the last. As always you put a smile on my face ❤❤❤

        Love all the cards and I like the way you combine old stamps with the new ones and that last card with the design in the corner brilliant! Less is more! A great idea.
        By the way that fox is super cute. X
