"Wonderful quote and how so true, Retta.  Your card is adorable so vivid, vibrant and fresh.  Your sponging and colouring is fantastic.  A fun, bright and cheerful card :)"
Retta Rae replied to Susie Moore, GKD Design Team's discussion Mix It Up Monday STV17MON12 - Flowers and Dots
"I love this!  Dots are so whimsical.  I never think to use them, and they always add so much to a card. Thanks for the great challenge this week. I love it when a new technique or embellishment (for me) is used in a challenge."

Hi Retta, thanks so much for your lovely comments on my Krafty cards. I've really enjoyed coloring that tulip frame and that iris stamp is one of my favorites.

Thanks Retta - I find it interesting to look at everyone else's cards because I get ideas for stamps that I have but haven't really used much. This weeks challenge was a challenge as I simply couldn't think of what to do. Then I saw another creation in the galleries and I thought oh yes I can try it with this stamp.

Thanks so much  Retta Rae for commenting on my Galaxy challenge card.  More than a little bit of a challenge for me but I appreciate your kind words.  Have a great day.

Thanks Retta Rae. So glad you liked my circle with a scene in it. Great way to use up some of the die cut negatives as masks.

Thanks so much Retta, I happy you like both my cards. I had fun making them and I especially enjoyed making the heart background paper. It turned out way better than I imagined it would.

Thank you Retta for your kind comments on my treat basket, I always admire your cards, they are always very beautifully made :)

Retta thanks for your lovely comment on my gingham Valentine. I don't think I'd ever used that cute bird stamp. Then it hit me I could not only use it to make a card for the challenge, but use it for my DH's Valentine as well. I was pleased with the way it turned out.
