Gorgeous cards Christine. I'm sure Susan has inspired a lot of us with her beautiful card using the elegant writer. I've been meaning to buy one to play with ever since you first introduced me to them ... I'm sure that was several years ago now. The pen is in the mail!! :) Can't wait. Thanks for enabling me. :) xx

What pretty Christmas cards, Christine! I love how the color of the ink reacts with water, creating such beautiful effects! The choice of Weathered Wood ink for the sentiments is perfect, giving the cards a coordinated and cohesive touch.
