The lemon coaster is ADORABLE, Betsy, love this project!


Love the coaster. Like how you coordinated everything together. The colours you used are so pretty together. What a wonderful gift.

Talk about a load of sunshine! Your bold red, yellow, aqua, and white speak of the 1940s. The cork on the bottom of the coaster solves the problem of sweaty summer drinks soaking the table below the cute felt part. (I've been racking my brain about that, using a different fabric technique.) Thank you!

Your card is fantastic, right down to using the polka-dot paper with the letter die. letting your sentiment wear two different colors of dots. Your card also showcases just how large this alphabet is. (Much harder to tell with just an initial.)

Yesterday I didn't have time to post, and I had a couple of questions about those fabulous cards (only if you easily have time to answer). The wonderful ombre effect you have with the triangles, looks like you used two inks on the strip each time you stamped, and slightly overlapped the colors. Mixing inks on a stamp has really mucked up some of my ink pads. Do you use one small part of your pad for that, or do you make sure the colors are close enough in hue that the color mixing isn't a problem next time you use that pad?

Your second card is one of my favorite ways you build an image, using lines of elements in a staggered horizontal and vertical arrangement. You are the queen at this, and I still often look at your fabulous Valentine card (winter of 2011) using the 'love and kisses' sentiments from Heart Prints and other coordinating sets. My question about this card is about the stars. How did you attach the vellum without having the adhesive show through? I bet you only attached on the white background, but I've never found any glue that didn't ruin the look.

Thank you once again for your inspiration. I truly get it if you are too busy to answer the questions now, but maybe they could be slipped into one of your fabulous videos.
