So glad to see your holiday entries- they're gorgeous! You have the most classic taste- I kept 'liking' designs and then looking down to see they were almost all yours!

You're too sweet! If I were to send a holiday card, I would send one of your designs. They are simple + perfect.

Thank you for the sweet comment Megan! I was actually just looking at (and loving) your entries and went to check our your website- it is gorgeous! Love the holiday line, and the little envelope accents you use throughout the site are perfection!

Megan, this may seem crazy but your "a proper hello" design from the Good Housekeeping challenge popped into me head the other day. I think it could make a beautiful wedding invitation. You might want to consider "recycling" it for the current challenge :)

These are stunning designs that show incredible talent and creativity. The witty comments blend very well with the graphics.

Unique and refreshing this design does not rely on the heart and love motive. It is a card for all who have special friends. I would definately buy this card. The color combination only adds another dimension to its charm.
