  10. Hi Kim,
    a bit late but better than never............ LOVE your card, it's just beautiful. Thought you were recovering from birthday celebrations and took the day "off" blogging, but what a great surprise it was to see this lovely offering.
    Technology is great when it works but a pain in the proverbial if it doesn't....... we can all tell stories about that!!!
    What does it mean to become a "follower"? I post my comments because I appreciate all your efforts in inspiring us - and you sure do!! Is there anything else one has to do to qualify? I'd love to be in with a chance of a card of yours.....
    Hugs, Rose

  33. I've just found your blog, Kim, and am going to enjoy going back through your earlier posts. It looks like I found you just at the right moment. I haven't long been papercrafting, crossing over recently from cross-stitch and beaded jewellery, and I don't have very much in the way of a stash. It would be such a thrill if I'm lucky enough to be picked as a winner to your most generous give-away. xx

  35. I'm sorry I haven't come across your blog before Kim, but your work is beautiful, and have become a follower. Look forward to seeing more of you on C&C and looking at your lovely cards on here. I love the yellow Daisies, and that lovely fretwork look from the die behind, with the purple framing it . The flower with the purple leaves and white flourishes enhances it perfectly. x

  41. Hi Kim
    Sorry I'm late, but someone has to work, so I've watched your shows on the C&C catch up, love your demos and the "wing it" demo with Leonie - that card was superb!!
    So I will now be a new follower - I first saw you with Sue Wilson & must say I was impressed then.
    So good luck to whoever wins the goodies!! Belated birthday for yesterday.
