    I love your cards Laura you are so talented I think it’s because of you that I finally ordered the two cityscape cover dies I just love them it’s hard to pick and choose when you want everything. With five kids and it seems like you are on design teams or guest designers everywhere I am wondering how you do it all. If you have an extra couple minutes I’d love to know how long you’ve been at this and how many hours a week you put into it these days?
