I always leave your card samples till last Melissa because you know the saying "leave the best for last". I really love the antique look the paper piecing had on your card and the colors you used. Thanks for sharing your talents!!

your soft subtle colors are so perfect in contrast to the vibrant colors many of the other designers used - and I love everyone's approach equally. you may just be tempting me to try the paper piecing technique as well. thanks for the great projects.


The cards are beautiful. When I first looked at the stamps set I was wondering what I would do with this set. Well you showed me how to use the stamp set. Your cards are amazing.
