  60. Marybeth, these are fabulous! And judging by the number of comments they were a hit with everyone else, too! The touches of sequins are perfect and I love the colors, especially on the 2nd card. I smiled when I saw you watched the BYU-USU football game...yes, the snow is getting awfully close. It's sprinkled down a few times here, but hasn't stuck (although last Friday it stuck on homes about a 1/2 mile away from us). It's warmed up a bit since then, though...hope it lasts.
