You inspire me so much - you make me want to make fun cards...and bake yummy cookies...or at least EAT yummy cookies!! :o)

You really are one amazing designer! I love all of your cards:D

Lisa Hjulberg

All are delectable! I love what you did with Dawn's Mod Squad set... how great is that! And I adore Lisa's couch sets... can't wait to get mine. Also, your floral card is yummy with the color combo, what appears to be paper piecing, and the very cool and unusual background piece. You are amazing, Melissa!

I don't know what desert you're living in, but I live in one, too, and I'll never get used to it. Ugh.

I love how you made a pumpkin Halloween card w/ the Mod Squad set - that is thinking outside the box! AND the throw over the sofa is awesome! Thanks for sharing these cards with your readers!

I always love all of your cards! That blanket on the back of the couch- so sweet- reminds me of my grandparents! *sigh*
Enjoy those YUMMY sounding cookies!

Amazingly perfect and gorgeous!!!! ♥♥ Kay


I do love your style Melissa - I especially like the creamy coloured felt used on these cards.


As always, lovely cards. Your style is absolutely perfect.

What heartwarming pretties you've posted today! Who needs chicken soup when you've got Melissa Phillips originals!


Your cards are beautiful. I *love* what you did with the In Bloome set. Fantastic combination of patterns and textures. :)

Aphra Bolyer can make some cards!!! Love all of them. You make those stamps look GOOD! ;)


You are so talented, everything you make always turns out gorgeous ! I LOVE to visit your blog ...every day :)


I find it so "neat" that all of your cards are so uniquely "you". Amazing how you can take a stamp set that I've seen used many many times by other designers and almost not even recognize it because you've usedit in a completely fresh and different way. I hope someday I can find and develop a unique style that is "me". Thanks for the inspiration - both creatively and in everyday life :0)


Gorgeous, Gorgeous!!! Sigh......

Have a great weekend!! Hugs, char


Wow, Melissa! I am always amazed by your cards, but today, I've gotta tell ya, I am EXTRA amazed, if that's possible. You took such varied stamps sets (and the release this time had some sets that I would never have dreamed would be your cup of tea) and made them undeniable YOURS. I just can't believe how much "'bean" you put into the Mod Squad set, the In Bloom set (which strikes me as Asian influenced), the Out to Sea.... all still girly, glittery, sweet, and 'Bean-like. Wow!!


melissa - love your cards - i've lived in the southern california desert since l962 - and i'm STILL not used to it - it was easier when i was younger!:^) - so i'm asking - is it autumn yet?!
i hope that you share the recipe for your choc chip mac nut cocokies. thank you


WOw.. Ilove the sofa!!!! it is amazing ... so pretty!


Just love the details!!!! Always wonderful


Absolutely stunning!!! Love them all...and the cookies sound fab too!! ^.^

Melisa Hunter

Incredible cards, as always! You are so creative!


It's all stunning as usual, but I love your take on that sofa. Making it look vintage is beautiful!
