Oh, Melis, you never disappoint me when I visit your blog! Your gorgeous creations always make me happy. Spring is trying to make itself known here. The weather has been up and down with temps and rain.


What a beautiful image! I adore this colour scheme! Happened that I have made couple of cards recently, they are very much like this photo! Thanks for inspiration!


You already knew that I love everything you create but the card with the "LOVE YOU"sentiment is my favorite. Love it to pieces..... I am so ready for spring. We had a sunny day but it's still cold. The nights are cold; temperatures still below zero and I can hardly wait to work in my garden and being able to have lunch and dinner in my garden...sitting in the (evening) sun :)

MMMmmm! indeed spring is near! Love your creations, it's always a treat to visit a new post by you.
So happy you brought back your photo inspirations.. originally I had made this for the challenge over at Moxie Fab World, but when I saw your cheery photo, I thought I would share here too!


Spring is showing itself in the light quality around my parts, but it still feels a little cold for me... hopefully soon, as the bulbs are crying out for it! I just love your collection of cards, and that lace that looks tea stained is the perfect accent! :) I hope to play with your photo this week!


Spring is so far away from Greece right now.It s rainy, cold and they say it is going to snow.It s March for God s sake!
Love your cards


Here is my blog post showing the card I made from this inspiration photo. Thanks for posting! And what beautiful cards too :)

Geri Freeman

Hey, Melissa! Sorry to greet you with a link, but I've never done it with my iPad and thought I had better try it out first thing to see if I knew how to do it!! LOL. I really enjoyed this challenge. Thanks for taking the time to inspire and challenge us again!! My card from the first challenge is only a few posts from his one--didn't know if you saw it. Looking forward to see those pretty tags "in action" this week. Have a great day!

Hi Melissa,

I love the cards that you made for Frost it Pink. Thank you for the tip on the seam binding. I will have to go and check it out.

I have a card for the photo challenge from Creative Mint. Thank you for taking a peek. Have a great day.

Sylvia/Little Treasures

OH.what a beautiful display of cards you have today. I am a little late with this but some sinus/migranes had me for a loop last few days.
A fun challenge, from the Creative Mint image. Thanks for all your wonderful inspiration.
