I'm speechless after seeing the gorgeous creations here. I love the use of the Delightful Doilies die with the clock face- unique & striking (I'd have never tho't of it). Love the stitched hearts, the vellum, & everything you do!!!

When I saw the clock sets, I immediately thought they would look good in a romantic style. Then I tried to imagine what I would do with those pieces. (At this point, you should insert crickets chirping in the background.)....Nothing.

So it was with great interest I visited the maven of romantic style. It's possible that this post is my all time favorite. There isn't one uninspired inch in all your wonderful samples.

The 'clock-flower' card is a creative marvel...down to the hands on the leaves. (And I love that you used the limited layers dies for the face.)

The last card is a study of value used perfectly. The brown is fabulous with the 'soft stone' and other lighter hues - not combinations I would have even hazarded to try. The small flowers and stitched hearts are inspired placeholders along with the numerals.

Thank you for taking the time to share all these glorious samples. Missing one of them would have been a loss of creative inspiration most sad.


It's all so pretty! I love your creativity! It's so soft!!
