I’ve been receiving your emails with videos for some time. The videos are well-organized, informative, and well-paced. I always learn something new and am inspired to use different designs (e.g. dots, stripes). You are very talented so keep creating.
Jacqueline Korevaar says
Sweet and simple cards. Thanks for the inspiration.
Vine Matzke says
Just starting to get into Slim Line cards! Love the simplicity of these!
Lee Miner says
The thing is, there is not P in ROY G BIV so the Pink shouldn’t be there. And when it combines with a neighbor it becomes almost Coral. Nope – not there. And if they were gone you’d have room for Purple but why — I ask you WHY?– have you dumped Indigo!? Two thirds of the dot card were RPOY, for goon’ess sake. So. That aside, adorable cards, the dots and stripes are both must-haves, love the font you use and these are great simple cards. (Hope you know the rant is just teasin’).
Carol Wortman says
