Ok! My favorites are, the no line colored poinsettia (superb), the flag (so creative and classy and minimal) and the water spots and colors and layout on the Nurturing Blooms!!

Debra Rumpza said...

Fun and unique cards...

Sharon said...

Great designs! The bokeh poinsettia is amazing!

Lydia Hallum said...

I enjoy all your cards but the Nurturing Blooms is just wonderful. How did you create it? to get the effect ---white ink or something else?

Teresa Doyle said...

What amazing cards Karen, well done!

Jane M said...

So many great cards! Thanks for all the inspiration

Lisa K said...

Gorgeous poinsettia with no lines. The bokeh technique is so original. I doubt I see another of these in this hop. The turtle and sea star cards are both so cute. I love seascape cards.

Love all your cards, but the pink poinsettia card just takes my breath away. The black and white ribbon just sets it off. Beautiful!!!

m fountain said...

Karen, WoW, what beautifully creative cards, all of them! I can not pick one over the other that I like the most. From the Texas flag, the line less poinsettia, the water background of your turtle or the last card with the spot of ribbon. As always you produce wonderful cards, thanks.

Super cards Karen. Your pink poinsettia card is wonderful. Love your Todd Turtle cards. They are so cute. And the Texas flag - that sentiment is just perfect for what you all have been through and are continuing to experience in Texas. Prayers still continue.
