Thanks Melanie for the sweet comment on my Vellum challenge card. I was glad I watched your video and gave it a try and I was even pleased with the outcome. Thanks again! Happy Stamping!

Melanie, I'm so glad you liked my card in the Color Challenge . I'm having great fun with all the challenges, in the middle of all the holiday fuss, squeezing time in to craft when I can.:) Have a great rest of the week and happy stamping!

Thanks Melanie for the sweet comment on my Never Ending card. After I saw your peek a boo card at the release party I knew Id be using that on at least one of my cards this year. :) Thanks too for the great challenge. Have a great day!

Thanks Melanie for the nice comment on my Winter Deer Scene card. I was not one to use that type of die cuts much, but for some reason these two especially appealed to me and I am glad that your images worked so well with them too.

Thank you so much Melanie for leaving such a sweet comment on my Sending Birthday Wishes card, I really appreciate it. I had some crafting friends over yesterday and they loved the card so much that "at least" one of them purchased the same Year of Flowers stamp set of yours.
