oh wow kris i love this :dummy:
~yes a new VS! :la:~ this is yet another lovely little style- so smooth & sexy & always subtle-you have definitely become my favorite visual style designer- every time you release a new one it is exquisitely perfect- i think ive told you this before, (perhaps more than once :meow: ) but your designs just have this certain delicate quality that i love- you have an acute awareness, and brilliant sense of, classic simplicity & beauty.

:+fav:Another fav kris:tighthug:
