I love your new card, guess you're gonna make me get that pretty stitched primitive heart die! And I remember the Brushed Blooms card. In fact, I thought it was so pretty, I had to make a few & send them out. Thank you, as always, for your inspiration & encouragement- looking forward to another PTI year!

Melissa, my best friend and I have a code word for a card that either of us makes with lots of layers, embellishments and feminine style: "its a Melissa card"! You always inspire us to take a card to the next level.


Oh, Melissa...I LOVE, love, LOVE that first've really made the colors shine on it! And I adore the shape of that heart die. It was out of stock the last time I was able to make a purchase, I think. You always make me wish I had it! Just saw the 14 day challenge, on the previous post, I think. How wonderful...thanks for sharing it! And thanks for your continued one of a kind inspiration!!!

Hi Melissa,

Oh my, you are a girl after my own heart! What an AWESOME and inspiring piece of ART!!! Because let's say it out loud... ART comes in various forms, and what you do, although in a smaller scale is absolute ART! As far as I am concerned you bring me much more joy with your artistic creations than Picasso with one of his paintings! Thanks for bringing sunshine into my life!

Beautiful card , love your new one with the heart.

Patty O'Malley

What a beautiful card, Melissa! Your work is such an inspiration to me and so many! I am so glad you will be part of the PTI DT again this year. Your blog is the first one I look at during release time, and every other day of the month! I just love your style and grace! I am looking forward to another wonderful year of beautiful projects and from the heart blog posts. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with so many! God bless!

Melissa - not only are your projects inspirational but your blog posts as well. Thank you for both. Your designs are one-of-a-kind and I'm so grateful that you are part of the PTI Design team. Wishing you a joy-filled 2016.


Wonderful card, Melissa! Nice design, colors, patterned papers, stitched heart and other stitches, flowers. I love the way you combine design elements and bring them all together to make your always awesome cards! :)

Sandy M

Both cards are adorable but I think I love the stitched heart cart the most. Love your story about the "of" being left out of one of your cards.
