  16. Hi Michelle~

    Happy New Year to you and your family. May you all be healthy, have closeness, and enjoy the simple yet, beautiful things in life.

    It was wonderful to look through your Favorites. I really love the embossed Santa in the magazine. It is such a great Vintage looking Santa...and I love the blue and white together! I REALLY LOVE the April card you made...possibly the most...I love what you did with that dress form...and those words are so full of love. This is surely my favorite from this amazing list. I love the level you hold yourself to when you make these cards. I hope you still enjoy doing it...I want to come to your blog for many more years to come.

    Question: When you need to color a white area on a card...let's say snow or Santa's beard...and if you didn't have a copics for it..or 10 different copic shades of white....what other medium would you use? I run into this. I am trying to color this adorable polar bear with a scarf...and I don't have a white copics. It is a cutesty type stamp, so I don't want to put dirt and such on him. Any ideas? I appreciate it!

    Have a blessed year!

  18. Happy New Year Michelle! Thank you for your sweet Christmas card! I feel rotten, because I have not mailed out one single one :(...!!! Love all your fun favorite cards...the are so beautiful! Wishing you a fabulous new *2011*....hugs ~S~

  19. Congrats Michelle! What a fabulous accomplishment. Your talent knows no bounds...these are all unique and beautiful!

  20. Wow, this is an amazing portfolio! I remember just about every one of those cards, so I'm glad for the few that I missed that you posted them here! I never got to see your cover either, I remember when that came out so I'm so glad to see it here! Gorgeous body of work.

    I don't get to pop by very often but know that I follow you by Newfeed everyday!! You are an inspiration to me!

    Happy and blessed New Year my friend!
