  1. I really love the colors in this card, Judi and the house image is quite fetching. As soon as I saw your card, it filled me with a bit of nostalgia for some reason. Your background designer paper is really gorgeous - with the flowers, everything seems to be the perfect setting - a warm home to relax in. Picture perfect!

  2. Wow Judi it's lovely. The shading on the roof is excellent! Really love the colour combo you've gone with too.

  10. Hi Judi,

    What a fabulous card you've made with this stamp. I honetly think it's about the best one I've seen done thus far. Your coloring is exquisite, and and the paper you used really goes well with your coloring choices. It's been a real honor sponsoring SSW, and all the beautiful creations and lovely stories have made me want to come back many times over. Thank you for the beautiful work.
