I am so delighted to see they've been of use to you, Karen, and how beautifully you have embellished and adapted them! Framing them in matching colours is perfect. You have made my heart sing :).

Oh my goodness, that second card is so clever - I was staring at thinking "How did Karen do this?" It's just perfect. I am envying you your 'lady' boat. I'd love to travel in something like that.

Thank-you for those lovely wishes :). And I do like the colour of your fence/balustrade ... Will think of you when I get up early and sit outside in the morning, watching the sun through the trees, just like your photo.

Sandie, I think would be a perfect addition to your camper van :).
That's a great photo and you've really made it sparkle! Wishing all good things for you and the family on this special day for your country.

And a very handsome specimen it is too ...
I think it counts, Gail - it's beautiful ...

This comes with warmest good wishes for your special day over there - hoping there's Key Lime Pie AND Apple Brown Betty and lots of sparkly fireworks to enjoy :).

Wishing you all good things on this special day for you. Those cards are very crisp - that last one is my favourite with the little layered triangles/bunting.

Your pages always 'breathe' despite the wealth of detail - the contrast of your chosen elements with the white is simply lovely. I am seriously impressed with your decluttering! Hoping that the getting to know another part of the family helps to ease your sadness ...

Clean and layered? I had no idea such a grouping existed but it's perfect for your super work, and a category I could aspire to. I am always taken with the sheer precision of your work - looks so professional.

Lovely, lovely cards, Karen - and if you're ever short of a post, a photo of your Peerless watercolours and some instructions would be a treat :).

Awww, so very sweet ... Love his little boxing mitts :). That must be such a joy getting a daily photo. You'll be able to chart the changes.

Keep going! I've just had a peek at Mary's and yours is going to be equally lovely. What a rich yet light colour ... Hurrah for the universe pointing you in the right direction!

That looks like an admirable challenge ... I used to love fiction and I now don't know when I last read a novel. I don't think Moby Dick would be on my must-read list either :).
These are very pretty and I have never heard of New York beauty blocks... If I were to try and finish all my unfinished projects and classes before the end of the year, Honoré, I'd need to take six months off work and stay up all night, every night!

That is indeed a bright and inspired choice - going to be just lovely ...

So there are! Nicely spotted ... though the colourfulness of your top photo belies the rain outside. Mmm, where to put the computer is always a problem - mine catches the light in the morning making it difficult to read. I may be doing the same!

Oh, what a deliciously relaxing time it sounds ... and the close-ups are lovely. Summer flowers looks wonderful, and the family of the Umbelliferae are my favourites.

I love that star one - just brilliant! You are incredibly creative ... I really must get myself some dies and come back and learn from you how to make cards. You could run a class, you really could ...

Well, I'm a mixed-up scrap-around kinda-gal :), and love to see combinations of things that strike the creator as interesting, rather than what a manufacturer determines. The page has huge 'wow!' factor to my eye: the black and white with the pink is just stunning.

And it has been my pleasure too to get to know you a little more through our moments, Honoré :). I enjoy so much popping in and being invited to see something of your world - and I have learnt about quiet morning time and quilting as a bonus! Hoping it's a very special celebration for Cissy on Saturday - that is indeed an achievement. I am interested in your experience of Day One for I have it too, and have been singularly terrible at doing anything with it. They nicely remind me to write in it - and I never do. I clearly need to pull up my journalling socks! Thank-you very much indeed for all your loyal support and contributions, and this comes with my very best wishes and warmest regards, Alexa.
What a very beautiful effect you have achieved on the tulip card - so delicate and subtle. You have shown us things in this class which I'd never have dreamed one could do with watercolours.
