Oh Julia - you have really outdone yourself with all of these beautiful and creative cards. Your sympathy card is wonderful...will have to case that one for sure. I love your little gingerbread tag...isn't it fun to pull out these old sets and create again with them?! Thanks for all you do for the WMS team!

These are all wonderful. I love how you used those knot corners. And, how fun that you were one of the first customers. That set is really cute.

Marybeth said...

Julia ....you have a wonderful collection here! I love your sympathy card, I would never have thought to use the corners like that but it's perfect. I will be using this idea! Love it!

Beautiful cards.

Antje said...

Wow Julia, you made a big effort, so many projects!!
I really like your sympathy card is so clear and gives a perfect mood to comfort someone. In your nauty card I like the waves on the quote - perfect idea and the lovely ribbon.
I remember the ginger sets very well - your tag is lovely and
last, not least - the sketch challenge, the window with the flower looks just gorgeous!

Carola said...

Hi Julia

WOW, so many wonderful projects for the Pajama Party!
I like the sympathy card in that clear and simple style; on your colour inspiration card I like - besides the colours - the details such as anchor, fence and wave border; the tag has beautiful colours and the gingerbread girl is so sweet; and on your card to the sketch I like the backgrounds as well as that "window".

Really well done!

Kind regards
Carola

ooh so many lovelies. I'm particularly smitten with that tag!

Claire said...

what a beautiful selection Julia - I think my favourite is the knot sympathy card...I'm wavering between buying that one or the nautical set! Love the way you used the gothic window in the sketch challenge...a lovely alternative to the oval!

Vickie Z said...

They are all wonderful!! In love with your sketch card....love the arch with flowers and those backgrounds!!
