Thanks so much for commenting on my Soaring Bird card that I made from looking at yours. There are so many beautiful cards that you have made that I try my best at and find it so helpful seeing all your inspiration. I am not the best at choosing colors on my own alot of times so it is so helpful to be able to follow your designs. Appreciate you leaving a comment.

Thanks for making such a nice comment on my It's a Green Thing. Unfortunately. I cant't take credit for the layout because it was a sketch from MFT. I should have mentioned it , and I did on my blog but not at Stamp TV.  Thanks again.

Hi Melanie; you're super sweet to take time out to stop by and comment on my white wash cards.  But the credit goes back to you for inspiring and motivating me to do them! Such a splendid technique!  I know I will be doing this a lot and try it on other colors.  So many possibilities....

Thanks Melanie for looking at my Heartfelt and Rose Sympathy cards and leaving a nice comment for me. I sure do appreciate hearing that you liked them. I love The Vine set and will be looking for a new card made from it by you.
