All your cards are pretty, Melis, but I love the one you didn't care for. It brings back a bit of that shabby style you do so well. I love the shabby look and hope you will be doing more projects in that style again.

Melissa! ALL of your cards are FABULOUS!! INCLUDING the one you aren't too sure of! I LOVE how it came out! It has a "chalk board" look about it with the white gelato! LOOKS GREAT TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D SERIOUSLY, including that card in the mix, DON'T make me choose just one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D HAVE A SUPER DAY!!!!!!!!!:D

Melissa what a fantastic post full of BEAUTY!! I love the shabby feel to the card with the white gelato! I know what you mean about a card not turning out the way you maybe originally pictured it in your head but this is still a winner in my book! Shabby and sweet! I always LOVE your posts!

Sending you lots of love back! That is my favorite card design today!!


I don't know what to say. Your cards are amazing, gorgeous and beautiful. You eye for detail is amazing.

I love both of the ticket stamps and die collections and anxious to add to my own collection and also have great inspiration examples to choose from. Your cards are so delightful and so much thought put into them that it is hard to imagine any that are not what you expected but it nice to see the "human" touches as well. We all have those cards and there are moments whether we share or toss. Thank you today, for sharing!


I love the card you weren't sure about! I think that the gelato technique gave it an aged and soft feel. I'm so glad you stayed with it and posted it! Lovely work as always my friend. You are amazing!


Beautiful! All of them!!

Always a love affair with EVERYTHING you do! Where to begin...
well, pastel pretties to bold primaries, over the top fun! (as usual!)

Love all of your cards. I agree with some of the other comments that the card you're not sure about looks a bit chalkboard like. It is definitely much nicer than a few attempts I have tried with the gelatos. I'm having a bit of a time with them, but see that you had lovely results with some of your other cards. Also, I adore your "Nevada" die cut card! Must get that die. Hugs.

Gorgeous cards!!! Fantastic new release! Thanks for the inspiration!


I've tried to pick a favorite card but that did not work out. I love them all :)

I don't know what you're talking about Melissa. I liked the kraft with the white gelatto smeared across it. It's kind of a mix between chalkboard and wood grain.


Simply lovely projects! Love all your layers!


Nice variety of terrific cards in today's post! I was particularly taken by the pastel sympathy card. It is beautiful. I've never seen one done in pastels but it seems particularly soft and uplifting. I quite liked the r/w/b "enjoy the trip" card, as well. Great design. :)
