Wow...thank you all so much for your encouraging feedback! I'm laughing hard, because yesterday I submitted something to the Digigtal catagory that I had great response to at the last art show I did, and yet it only received one little comment (thanks Mellanie). Today, I get more than I expected! It just goes to show that you never can gauge what will strike a chord and what will displease. Therefore I will just try and try again! :o) Thanks again to each of you!
