That tree is just the sweetest! And you rawked the Lime Tart A La Tarte Kit. Wasn't it a fun kit. Love your projects!

Paola Norman

Everything you make is so beautiful!


I plan on giving the sketch a try too. You do have a gift and it's so nice to see when some one does have a gift that they use it.


WOW...I honestly didn't think I'd have time to get to this sketch - SO glad I did though! Got to use my very first OBP stamp that came in the mail today! YAY!
Thanks for the chance to win Melissa!
Here's my card.....


Wow, beautiful creations, that tree is stunning!!!!!! How do you come up with all these awesome ideas. I will post my card tomorrow.


Thank you for encouragement to "let my shabby come tumbling out"...
I present to you...
my very first 'shabby' card :D


Your blog is wonderful. You make the most amazing projects. Here's my card I did with your sketch. Thanks for opportunity for some great stuff.

I SO LOVE the shabby look and I LOVE those new Christmas papers! Can't wait to get my hands on them! I am happy to say that you are my FIRST sketch challenge...and I hope to do many more! Thanks for letting me play!


Wowza, Melissa!

Every time I visit you, my jaw drops in utter awe! Your work
is absolutely beautiful and an
inspiration to me.




YOU are so incredibly good. These are amazing, especially that shabby tree. I am in love. : )

*thud* that's my jaw hitting the floor looking at all the amazing creations. That tree and the stars are so so beautiful!!

Jennifer Hansen

Here is my take on it!


I love your Christmas ideas, and especially the mitten. I like the red, that's not bright red. Christmas in July is like having Christmas twice a year!



You are incredibly talented and I love love your tree. I really think you are the queen of Chic. I enjoy your blog immensely. With this said, I made a sketch card diffently not chic more like funky and not sure about what type of funky~ :) I really like the sketch and went out of my element to create this one and attempted chic.

I will post shortly to my blog.


Oh These are beautiful as always ..our creations are soo gorgeous..TFS!!


I didn't get to post it yesterday, but here it is today:


You make the most beautiful things! I decided to try my first sketch challenge! Here's the link: and if that doesn't work, it's on my blog: Thanks for the opportunity!


Finally got my card made. Thanks for the great sketch Melissa.
Here's my card:


Hi Melissa....loved the sketch...not shabby but hopefully chic;-) Made it so easy getting this card done for my friend. Cheers!
