  1. Oops, you might get this comment twice! All the cards are super, as usual. You never make a duff one! I love the shade of blue you chose for the centre card and the anchor is really cute too!

    • The comment only came through once Gillian (and you would be excused if it came through twice – I am the Queen of Double Click by accident/impatience!). I do make “duff” cards, I just choose to NOT take photographs of them. 😉 Gotta be selective. I have posted (at least once) a card and asked for suggestions (kind of like the masking card), and then posted the remade card.

      • I know, but still, I do have a vision of you sitting down, maybe humming a little, producing a beautiful card, with no mess, no mistakes, then just walking away from your beautifully neat and stylish workspace…

      • Oh, that is definitely a fairy tale, Gillian!

    • OH! The shade of blue on the middle card is Gmund Royal Blue. I think the company is in Germany, but there are sources here (for me) in the United States. I LOVE ROYAL BLUE…not all paper companies offer it in their color lines.

  2. Great Cards Kathy. I think, if I were to choose my most favourite, I think it would be the one of the right, as you look at the photo. The paler blue, with the compass in the centre.
    But .. they really are all great cards.
