  5. Wow You've been busy! These are all wonderful Donna. Great job coloring on all of these and making them flat for mailing. What a great way to start 2017 all caught up!

  6. Look at you, making flat cards. It pro'ly about killed ya. They are all beautiful though, you don't have to have tons of layers to make a beautiful card. These are such good examples of that. Looks like you had lots of fun coloring too. Well done, my dear!!!!

  7. A gorgeous set of cards. Thank you for entering our challenge at Penny Black and More this month.


  8. WOW these are all just fabulous! Great job but I'm sure you were going through layer withdrawal. I struggle with CAS design style too ... love my layers! Nice thing here is your beautiful coloring is front & center! You go girl ... now you can check this one off the list! Well done!

  9. They are wonderful, I know it is hard not to add more things but these do the job alone. Love the garden scene, gets me excited for spring and I love the coloring in the flowers!

  10. Gorgeous, Donna! It's like receiving part of your beautiful gardens - the colorful ones outdoors, and the loving one in your heart! They are lovely! (both the gardens AND your heart!) hoping 2017 is especially good to you! Maybe I can learn to make CAS cards, too! hugs, de

  11. WOW, great collection of flat cards! Have you recovered yet? LOL

  12. Wow!!! Look at you going all CAS on us, but I love everyone of them. The poppy and the little scene with the trees and the birds, the hydrangea, bench with plants are probably my favorites. You are amazing.

  17. While I am driving across the country, you are making CAS cards by the tons. Each one a little masterpiece. Love the group of plants on the bench, and the tree with the birds are my favorites. Good that you are happy to be caught up. You sure keep me motivated, but I can never keep up with you. In numbers, or talent.

  18. You have been a busy lady! These are all great. I can't pick a favorite because they all are my favorites!

  19. Good NIGHT! Lookie - I followed bread crumbs (or paper scraps) and found you again! And your "collection" just blew a part in my hair! I don't know what to say or where to begin. Well, let's just start with YOU'RE an AMAZING chick!!!!!
