Judy Hayes said...

beautiful work, Lisa!! The Huck Finn piece is my favorite! Great sets...again!

Lynne Phelps said...

What an awesome release! I love the way you have set the flapper in front of the stone railing and light post, they were made to go together! Huck is charming, but I think my favorite of the three is the masculine card! I love the warm colors and patterns that you have chosen. The layout is so interesting and the perfect backdrop to just let the stamped image stand on its own! Lovely, lovely cards!
