I love your blog. I love that you take the pictures of your cards looking out a window. It gives is such a beautiful background. I always know it's your site because of it. I love that. And it's such a small detail in the background. I love that you also finish the insides of your cards, they look so professional. LOVE IT all. Don't change anything. There's so much more to write. But those are two little details I like, that are unique about YOU!

#37 - Hi Denise! Congrats on your hits. I think your blog is fabulous! I particularly like how you show the insides of your cards, even when it's just a peek from the side. You've pushed me to try to finish more of the insides of my cards when I'm making them, instead of saving them to come back to later.

I just recently found your blog from Taylored Expressions, so I can't think of a thing to change! Your cards are beautiful, and thanks for the chance to win candy!

Anonymous said...

I think the thing I love most about your blog are the clean lines to your designs. Your cards are never "overdone" and always a great inspiration. Congratulations on being picked for Taylor's DT. I really love what you did with Taylor's new sets. I cant wait to get my own!

Congrats again!

Hi Denise - I love your blog the way it is - everyday there is another lovely card waiting for me to see!

Michelle B. AKA JustPaintingAround said...

Denise - I just love to look at your pretty pictures! Ha! In particular, I love your coloring. I also like that I can spot one of your cards a mile a way. Your style really stands out (and a lot of that is your coloring!). Thanks for the chance & congrats on 40,000!

Alberta said...

I began following your blog (via Google Reader) with the OCC Birthday Challenge and fell in love with your work. You are a magnificent paper artist – your imagery, the lines, the simple elegance, the charm and humor…I could go on. Moving along though…because of your gift with paper, I do have a suggestion that I think would be totally groovy. I think if you had an image (like your banner) stamped and embellished with color, etc on paper that would make a fantabulous banner – which would totally say paper and landscape combined. Only a suggestion - I enjoy reading your blog “AS IS”. If you didn’t change a thing, your readership will still follow you, me included.

I’m a novice at this paper craft game and have the potential to be some much better. It’s talent like yours that inspires me to keep going and better my own technique. For that…I THANK YOU!

Jan Scholl said...

This is my first visit-I was getting ready to sign out of Reader and the title of your blog was in the right hand corner. Hmmm. This apparently was a blog Reader suggested for me based on what I already look for.And I just added you to Reader in the Stamping Folder. I will be back soon. This is a nice offering too-I am going to have to see more of the K and Co Fall line-Michaels I am betting. Have a happy.

Your stuff always leave me in awe, not just the beautiful cards, but the creative projects you do. I'm still in love with the Halloween project!!

I hope when my blog grows up it will be like yours! :)

hugs, Jami

I have 6 blogs that I visit from time to time and yours is one of them. I like your writing style - very upbeat! Your pics are always so clear and you are gracious enough to give lots of deets in the recipe! I like the added touches of your personal life from time to time - not too much - just enough for the reader to *connect*.

Thanks for spending the time it takes to display a fantastic blog!
