Hi Yolanda! Thanks for your sweet comment on my Garden Delight design! I love your Stitched Up design. I've been working on a heart design too but I think it's different enough. I always feel a little weird when there's a similar element used... bound to happen I suppose. Anyway, looking forward to seeing more of your work. You have a lovely style.
