That pie card is soooo darling, and I feel all cozy just looking at it. You made an amazing masculine card! Love the color scheme. It would be perfect for Christmas too, so serene and peaceful...lovely!!!!

Audrey Pettit

Really beautiful cards, Melissa! So loving the warm homespun feel to the first card. The die cut frame and cozy stitching at the bottom melt my heart. And you totally nailed the masculine design on your second. Love the chalkboard technique done in a different color. I love the black chalkboard look, but how cool to see it done in other colors, too!

Ros Crawford

Beautiful ... I adore your masculine card!

Nancy Penir

Great cards both, but loving the treatment on the inside of the masculine card. Torn bottom idea going in my files! Thank you for always, always giving us such amazing detailed ideas!


There you go again with the most delightful little cards! Your masculine card is so sweet!

Patty O'Malley

What a set of beautiful cards, Melis! I can just feel the warm feelings on the first one with the pie. I always have trouble with masculine cards, so I love what you did with the next two. I think they are perfect!

OMGosh, Melissa, your cards are so sweet and warm! I love them both but what a fabulous job you did creating the masculine card! Thank you for all the inspiration you've shared.

Melissa this is such a lovely post. My husband Stuart LOVED pie and was always so excited when someone brought pie to him either in celebration or when he was ill. Your first card just spoke right to my heart when I saw that sweet pie image and read about your neighbor bringing strawberry-rhubarb pie over just because! How lovely! And your masculine card is such a great color story! Love the chalkboard look on the ocean tides card stock! And the inside is wonderful too! Gorgeous inspiration! :)

Connie MacFarlane

Gorgeous cards Melissa! Love all of the details and stamping. Great job on the masculine card!

Beautiful cards - you do masculine as well as you do feminine! Just so tickled to see you use the frame from Garden Variety - I don't use that near enough and you showed a great way to do it, so thanks!

Larissa Heskett

Awesome!! I love the amazing designs for today!! Thanks for sharing and have a Fabulous Week!! ;)

Donna K

you always have the prettiest cards. the masculine one is so perfect - not too plain like most for men but not so much it feels girly. love the inside too. I always try to add a little surprise to the inside.


Such beautiful cards! Love the designs and colors.

Paula Fuller

The card designs both today and yesterday are just fabulous. I am so happy to see Get Well sentiments.


BEAUTIFUL!!! You always make jaw-dropping card. Love your manly card.


Such beautiful and creative cards!

Susan Gosman

Those cards are little works of art!


I just keep staring at the first card because there are so many charming details to absorb. And thank you for introducing me to that perfect pie stamp. My Punny Valentine was released long before I knew of PTI. Once I stopped staring at that card, I continued reading your post and laughed out loud at your comment about creating something manly. I'm sure that any man would be happy to receive that card. It is gorgeous, in the most manly sort of way.

Beautiful, Melissa -I can only imagine the delight someone has when they open a card made by you :)


Wonderful cards, Melissa! Great job creating a "manly" card!

Linda L.

Thank you for your all the ideas on this posting...


I LOVE your masculine card! The colors are perfect, and the design is "manly". A very striking card--my favorite of your three beautiful cards.

What a wonderful use of older sets. I just ran across that punny valentine set & will definitely use that pie again soon. Your attempt at a masculine card is a huge success - love the soft trees. These sentiments are very nice & will be very useful. Thanks so much.


Love your cards so much - those masculine cards fit the bill beautifully. Like another poster, I think your use of all your stamp sets - old and new - is masterful. You know all the goodies.

I love your cards. The pie card is beautiful. Love your masculine card as well
