  30. Hi Mary, thanks for showing how you inked on the embossed card...that's something I've wanted to try...and now I will. Pretty card...even prettier with the chocolate! :-) Wish I had the Sweethearts cartridge...I too like that heart better than the one on Doodlecharms. I think A Child's Year and Gypsy Wanderings both have pretty hearts too. TFS!
