Wow! I just LOVE your style! You always put red on almost every card you make and give it a twist in such a way that it looks even prettier than it is!

Alejandra from beautiful Costa Rica!


Incredibly beautiful!


Your mom sounds like an amazing person...just like you!


What a sweet package from your mom Melissa. Your card compliments it perfectly with your soft colors, the flourishes and that darling tag, so pretty!

When our son was a tiny little fella my dad would bring him home a bag of peanut m&ms from the candy machine at work. For the longest time he thought grandpa worked at the m&m factory!!


Its always a special treat to get a love package in the mail, and even the better when its from mom! Such a beautiful card, the pinks and reds and cute checked heart make me smile ;)


SO pretty. I love how you always use the Fancy Flourishes so perfectly - every time I think, "I need to pull those out", and then I forget to!

How thoughtful of your mum!! I used to live in a smaller town, where it wasn't as easy to find the more fun stuff, so I can relate!


pretty card, as always :) you must live somewhere like where my father spent his summers - on the family ranch in Ibapah (75 miles SE of Wendover)


Oh that's so sweet, I love the gingham paper peeping through the tag, gorgeous!

Pearl Maple

Very pretty, Basic Grey is fast becoming one of my favs this season

Yeah for mom's who send m&m's!! And for the color red and sweet cards and coca cola! Love your post!

Your Mom is sounds so sweet and thoughtful! Your card is so pretty. Love the red, pink and cream combo.

Such a sweet and pretty card! I also love how you use flourishes. All the papers are really pretty especially the one you made!

You have a very sweet and thoughtful mom. It's so often the little things done with love that we tend to remember. It probably cost your mom more to mail the m&m's than it did to buy them but she knew they would bring a smile to your face.

Beautiful card. LOVE it!

It's really wonderful!!!!!

Holly Saveur

So sweet and pretty!!


While the thought of your mum sending you such a sweet package makes me smile knowing that the cycle will continue on through you, and then your little bean kinda makes my heart sing... love your lil family.


Melissa i always love to visit your blog and see all the lovely projects you create, I was wondering how you get your pics so white without any gray light in the background? do you use aspecial photo editor?


Red is not my forte and I love to look at a gorgeous red card made by you. You do red so well and this card is perfect!
