sick of you? never. always a highlight to come here and see what you've been up to. love your creativity, and your sweet personality. enjoy this day.


I love, love, love your work!! You have sold me on the trendy trees and the postmarks background!! Thanks for always inspiring Melissa!!


I agree with Laura above - never, ever will we get sick of visiting your sweet blog and getting inspiration from your creativity! Love all your cards with this April PTI release!

Hi Melissa. I too agree with the ladies above, I never get tired of looking at the "oh-so-prettiness" that you consistently bring. BUT, I am certain that you were channeling someone else today. Looking through the series of cards that you made -- I seriously love what you did with all of them -- only the middle ones look a little like Melissa Phillips cards. Where is the lace and the bows and the pretties and the stick pins? I say again that I loved them as I always do, but I did think that I was looking at someone else's PTI release at first. Was this on purpose? Coincidence? New paper that is darker than what you usually use but you loved it and had to have it? Just curious if you even realized how different today's post is from usual? Thanks as always for sharing you never ending inspiration!

Saying "too much Melissa" is like saying a bad word! NEVER! That birdie card with the clouds and "under the weather" totally captured my heart! And can I say how much I love when you use Copics? You achieved such a sweet look with that baby card :)

Barbara Martin

I love all the combinations of color, pattern and texture that you use - something to aspire to!

Melissa I am just blown away by your cards this release! I have always loved your style but todays post of cards are a different style and I can't stop looking at them they are terrific!
The composition of The Hello You and the Under the Weather card perfection! Would it be okay with you if I pinned them on my Pinterest board of cards?


Love the earthy colors you used today. Awesome work.

Diana Waite

I was excited to see that you made the simple stories team--I LOOOVE what you did with the creations, simply AMAZINGLY awesome!


Is there a style you can't work? These are all awesome and what a great release... might have withdrawl's after this week, so hope you have lots to share coming up!

I have fallen in love with all the wonderful layered flowers you have been making. You have certainly been on a creative binge and we are the beneficiaries! Thanks so much for all the bits and lists you give us, I know it is time consuming. I visit your blog everyday for a big dose of inspiration and joy! Love your goodies!

Troy Louise

I will never tire of seeing your gorgeous, fun designs. Visiting your blog is like Christmas morning! Thanks so much.

To answer your first question - no, I'm not tired of you yet! :) I always get such joy out of seeing your creations. My favorite of this bunch is the second to last one - with the gingham clouds (so sweet) and the beautiful color combo of Canyon Clay and blue. It has a bit of a folk art feel to it and that really grabs me. Now, go take a break after this busy release! :)


so many beautiful cards! i love what you did with baby face - so soft and dainty! every time i look at it i see more fabulous details!!


FAB post! Every card is wonderful! LOVE the style, full of product and stamping and great papers and cuts ... and I'm lovin it all! :)


How did you even think to create a ticket to make a flower leaf from? Brilliant!! You're using some bolder, deeper colours in this post - everything is so gorgeous as always!
