I always love to see the cards you make for charity...especially the Operation Write Home cards.

I enjoy all your cards, Carol. My other favourites are the ones with a bit of humour! They make me smile!!!

Diane Jaquay said...

Congratulations on reaching 400 followers, Carol! I'm not at all surprised, you make beautiful cards! I actually love the variety of cards you showcase here on your blog. You do wonderful things with dies and embossing, you use adorable images that you color beautifully, and your humorous cards always make me giggle :) I'd say keep on doing what you do, that's why you've reached 400 followers!!

Congratulations on this milestone, Carol!! It's no surprise to me that you have so many fans!! Please don't put my name in the jar because the City has given me a warning that my Mt. NBUS can't get any higher or they'll shut down the Playhouse. I just wanted to leave my love and congratulations!! Hugs, Darnell

Hi Carol,
Congratulations on reaching 400 followers. Love all of your card creations. I am tying to use up some of my paper scraps so I would like to see more cards using scraps.

Congrats Carol!! No this is no surprise to me as you make the most awesome cards. My favorite ones are the humorous ones and OWH cards. I love when our soldiers are taken care of since they take such good care of our country. Hugs, Brenda

Oh Carol
I am but a fool :)
So if you want me to
I'll jump in the stew.
I love your cards, whatever they may be.
Love the humour and also your skill
and a snippet or two gives me a thrill.

I want to continue the kinds of cards you've been showing. I find most of your cards inspiring and they all want to make me break out my craft stuff and start creating. That's why I follow your blog.

You giveaway is more than generous! My goodness!

MaryH said...

Big Congrats on the 400 milestone. I know what you mean about being surprised (but I'm surprised at you gathering that many followers because your cards are wonderful!). It's always such a joy to visit here, see what you've shared for the day when I get time to pop round. That's some very generous candy, and I don't think you need to change one thing that you do with cards. Each one is a treasure, and you have such a variety of styles that you do. Love the way you always combine the papers so well with whatever the focal image or theme is! So keep it up! TFS & Hugs. Also many thanks for the sweet anniversary wishes.

You are so generous with your give a way blog candy...And who doesn't like getting new stuff?

So you don't have to add my name...but thank you for the opportunity!
