  1. What a fun card and a fun video – enjoy Laura so much. So nice to see little tricks to make things come out better! Thanks for sharing !!!

  2. Hi, This card certainly is so very cute. I love watching Laura’s videos, full of so many helpful tips and she just cracks me up with her great commentary. I’m so glad I’m not the only person who can take forever re doing bits of my cards, it makes me feel much better knowing that someone of Laura’s talent and experience can have problems as well. x

  3. All of these stamps look like they were made to go together! I love the color palette you used! Beautiful card!

  4. Your card is adorable Laura. I love your techniques and the colors that you chose to use. Thanks for sharing with us.

  5. What a beautiful card. Laura is very talented and her videos are always fun. I am always looking forward to her videos. Will be giving this a try. Thanks!

  6. What an outstanding video, always love you when you do voice overs, you are a hoot Laura! The card is absolutely darling, great job!

  7. Very beautiful card. The Melody stamp is such a cutie. Watching Laura’s videos always make me smile.

  8. What a sweet card. Love the colors you used and how the colors pulled everything together in the end. Great design. I am glad to know I am not the only one who changes things half way through a project or that it may take a whole day to complete a project. I always enjoy your videos with your bright, cheerful commentary! TFS

  9. I love combining stamp sets… especially when the results are as seamless & wonderful as this! Lawn Fawn is my favorite brand to do this with.

  10. Oh Laura, as always, you card is amazing. She is the sweetest little thing, ever! Great Copic colouring. (“Tiddle”, I didn’t know either. I think I learned that from your last time but forgot it. LOL)

    It’s ALWAYS a PLEASURE to listen to and watch you CREATING Laura :)
    LOVE your PRETTY colours and colouring, especially your ombre smile!!!
