Digital Two for Tuesday 35

The two images this week represent winter and summer. They both come from a children's book from the 1900's. With all the snow they have been getting in the mid- atlantic USA I thought some may be thinking of winter snowball fights while others are dreaming of summer fun with friends.
Our guest hostess this week is Esther. This is her second time hosting on Digital Two for Tuesday. Again she has created for us some inspiring cards. I just love her use of texture and embellishments. I can't wait to try her idea of using an edge punch to create a lace ruffled frame in the last card. You can see more of Esther's work on her blog Shore Girl Creations. Without further ado here are Esther's beautiful cards.
