You Are So Special



You are really special to me -- Our Christmas Card Club asked that we make a card for someone special.  I love this club - now I know that I will have some Christmas cards for 2016!

You know I do appreciate your kind comments (notice I said kind)!

What a wonderful image - so unusual with its simple sweeping lines - and beautifully coloured. Happy to have a moment's internet access just as this popped up on my dashboard - I love it!

Love this! It's an unusual image, but so darling, and beautifully colored too. I like the way you've presented it with the narrow rectangle mat, atop the bold red. For some reason, I thought at first the challenge was a Mother's Day theme, so that's what I settled upon. You were very clever with this design, my friend! TFS & Hugs. (not kind, just truthful!! LOL).

Hi Sandy, what an interesting and unusual image, and your colours are wonderful. I love the way you have used the image as the main feature and just have the red ribbon centred in the background, love it, Kate x

All your cards, your collectibles, your cat, that gorgeous traveling dove, it's all so wonderful. You're wonderful. Being on your blog again is WONDERFUL and seeing all your oozing talent and Christmas inspiration, it's been fabulous. My sincere apologies for being MIA. I needed a little computer break. I'm also excited to read about plants for the garden...WOO HOO. I think despite hating to sweat in the summer, I might be ready for a change in seasons. :)
Big hugs,
your pal in Missouri
