    Not easy to pick a favorite design. One of my favorite categories is titles. I could think of a layout for almost all of them. Love the Easter egg decorating title.


  2. my favorite is Cozy with Cocoa, what a cute idea for an added little gift

  3. Its hard to decide which I like.. Ilove them all.. So for now I will Start with First Snow.

  4. I had a hard time picking just one :) but, I got it down to two, 1. Winter Fun 2. Holiday Hoopla. I am happy to follow your blog. :)

  5. Love all your projects. And I love the think pink is super cute...I must order it.

  6. What an awesome collections of Christmas Cards. You are truly an inspiration to me. Thank you for hosting this hop and sharing your lovely projects!


    1. Checking out the designs is sensory overload. If i have to pick just one, i'd say the penguins in the winter scene. Just too cute

  7. I love these I am just starting out in Digital Design and I love your ideas.. Simply stunning and beautiful. Great job. Thanks for sharing this and I look forward to seeing tons more great ideas. Christy ladybugsonwalnut at gmail dot com

  8. Oh and I love Flakey Friends. simply adorable. thanks again Christy @ ladybugsonwalnut at

  9. Great job on your projects. I'm not sure what the actual color of the card is. It's showing up on my computer as a pinkish mauve with a sage green. The color combo is awesome. I'm going to go pull some papers and start creating.

  10. Like all of your Digi Projects today! Loved looking at the designs.Hard to choose one. But I had never seen the one with the little Skunk holding the Pumpkins. Smells of Fall! To Cute! Thanks for having this fun hop! :0)

    I went straight to the Christmas sets at SBD since I am in the Christmas spirit and I have to say it is a toss up between Holiday surprises come in all sizes and I Love Snow sets as my favorites!

  14. Am already a follower. I really do not have fave because there are so many adorable cuts. I do like the gingerbread family. I am only able to do hand cutting.
