Happy birthday Betto!!!

Thank you for sharing these wonderful crafting cards. I love the one with the country girl.... All are just so wonderful, and of course Happy Birthday Betto.

Wish you all a happy crafting weekend!

Hugs from Sweden:)

I love to create cards with G45...and these French Country cards are amazing. I really like the way Denise uses an extra score line in her cards, too. Beautiful. Kristin's card is so fun with the hinges and the drawer pull. Adds so much wonderful dimension to an already fabulous card. Thanks, Ladies!

Oh my goodness - they're GORGEOUS!

Beautiful cards. Great inspiration. Happy Birthday Betto!

I do all my cards so that pdf was a great help and inspiration when I get a mental block. TFS. Wish I could join your design team but only do cards and scrapbook pages and have no blog. But love your blog. Inspiring.!

These cards are So Beautiful!! Can't wait to get some French Country supplies!

I love the Thank You card.

The more I see the French Country paper the more I love the looks of it. Thank you graphic 45.

Congratulations to Wanda, and love the inspiration of these beautiful cards!

Awesome products

Thanks for another chance to win some of that gorgeous French Country collection!
