I just had to gasp when I read this post. You make the most beautiful shabby bow and the container they are in is adorable. I am completely in love with that gorgeous card with the bird on it. If it's available for sale, let me know. Your Christmas card is so cute--I never tire of the holiday!

What beautiful projects Melis - they just make me swoon they're so shabbily glorious! xL


Stop tempting me with seam binding!! (Off I go to peruse, of course)... You already know how I love your card, and I like your colouring better than my colouring :) haha...


Well i always wondered how you make such perfect bows, that don't look like bows but more like a flower!Preety amazing, it gives your cards a totally different look


Beautiful colors of seam binding. Your card is fabulous! Love the colors and each layer is scrumptious. The resin bird is nice and the glass button looks like a tiny door knob. When I saw the card, in fact, I was thinking it was like a door ... peaking my curiosity, inviting me to open it, to to see what lie beyond ...dramatic, huh? Then i came back to reality and got a grip on the fact that it was a beautiful card and not a shabby portal. Heehee! It is interesting what emotion art can erupt, huh? :)


Ooops! Forgot to mention how "sweet" your jar of cookies card is. The way the jar is colored and "popped" gives it nice dimension. The candy cane striped paper is perfect and the light pink buttons, mocking the snowflake shapes on the red paper, are perfect. Terrific holiday card. :)
