Hope I'm not over-doing posting my cards. I've made some "gown" cards - haven't a clue who I will be sending them to, but I love making gowns and hats so had to try out these new patterns.

Thanks everyone for the nice remarks. Iris fold (if you hadn't noticed) is my most favorite type of card to make.
Shawneegirl: The paper I used was some light weight foil that I got on-line where I order my peel-offs. I love working with it and he has a pretty good selection of colors.
citygal: I sent you an email on the where I got the pattern. If you didn't get it, let me know.

I forget who asked how long it takes to make a card. Usually I spend an afternoon just tracing and cutting out my patterns and then another day I may make 2-4 cards in an afternoon. If I don't do it that way, then it may take 2-3 hours to do a card. But it is relaxing for me.
