  3. i was hoping that being cake carts might put them out of the running for "wants" but now the are pushing up in the wish list especially the more elegant cuts!i'm loving the scalloped edge and the colours together, although my dh believes that "blue and green should never be seen" what he doesn't know about style!

  4. I also love the color combination on this card. The cuts from this cartridge are really nice. I thought I would get away with not wanting it because it was a cake cartridge, "wrong"!

  82. Joy, I absolutely LOVE this card! Those Cake cartridges are a must-have for me!!! I prefer those elegant-type images over the more cutesy ones! Can't wait for April!! I'll ask you the same thing I asked Melanie: Do you think the images on the Cake cartridges can be cut fairly small, or are they too delicate?
    Thanks!!!

    Hugs!
