Where do you find the time to make such detailed and lush cards?! I'd be happy if I could make one as complex in a week or two.

I'm going to guess how you did the 'blessings' card. Looks like you stamped the image in lightly stamped-off kraft ink (or is that the highly textured watercolor paper?). If that's the case, how did you use watercolors on the image without blurring the dye ink? The look is fabulous, but I can't figure out how you managed it.

Thanks again for sharing your awesome talent with us!

Wow! Look at all these beautiful cards! I love the basket of flowers and your water coloring. Perhaps you can share sometime how you colored it.


Absolutely beautiful! Each and every project is perfect in every way! Thanks for the inspiration!


You always have such lovely projects - and they astound me every time. I'm not certain how you can envision it the way you do, but your combinations are so amazing. Love the tag with the fall elegance - you've re-inspired me to put that one on my list! Thank you for sharing your amazing talent!


Beautiful, just beautiful!!!

All so pretty & fun! Love your little squirrel w/the blue tail. We have a little squirrel hiding out in our rock retaining wall. They are so fun to watch. Can't wait to try out some of these new sets. I do love fall. Thanks!
