  1. Aw, fabulously, happy looking card. GREAT make Kathy. ~ Cobs.

  2. I love these filled page cards you make. Such impressive design and technique. Must take ages to do this!

    • Oh, you are sweet! Just a few post it note masks, and away you go. Maybe 15 minutes? Sometimes I have to walk away for a few minutes in the middle to get my bearings again.

      • 15 minutes??? I may as well hang up my stamps….. Oddly, this now becomes another coincidence…all will be revealed soon.

      • Oh, no, what did I say?? You don’t need to hang up your stamps? Maybe I can’t read the clock to give you an accurate elapsed time?

      • Lol! I just meant what we can each respectively achieve in 15 mins. But believe it or not, I was just finishing up a post on 15 minute cards, called Lickety Split. I was going to post it last week, then you used the phrase so I didn’t want you to think I was copying you. I re-did it today and was going to post it tonight, but then reblogged something instead. There is more coincidence but it would make this reply too long! Just the universe playing games with me again:-)

      • Oh, no, I am so sorry that you thought that “15 minute cards” or “lickety split” would ruffle my feathers! I do understand serendipity & coincidence (or, “coinky-dinky”, the silly way my family pronounces it). Last time I checked, I was responsible for no phrases found in any dictionary, or any online source. I also know that sometimes I have extra blog posts ready to go, and how can it be possible that my creation from 3 weeks ago could match what we are talking about today? 😉 I am incredibly sorry if my off the cuff comment caused you to rewrite something.

      • Oh no, don’t be sorry! It’s just one of those funny things that happens. I have had the same situation with others too – I think that is partly why I don’t plan my posts much! You haven’t caused me any extra work or effort, I just didn’t want to offend you, as one of my best blogging pals!!

      • Please don’t ever worry about offending me! You are such a sweet soul, I don’t know that you could ever offend me!

      • Oh good! Not sure I deserve such a compliment, but I do so enjoy your comments and your creativity, as well as your support!

      • The feeling is mutual, Gillian!
