Love it! Thank you Mary for taking the time to put it together. I must say, I have a few tutorials and I love how you do your's. Everything is explained so well. Although, I have not tried any of them just yet(am too new at this) I still like to see how you create your beautiful pieces.

I have a feeling this one will be my favorite lol..I love Orcas!
