  2. What a neat shaker card. They seem to be all the rage right now. Your papers are wonderful and so was your tutorial. Your granddaughter is so cute.

  3. Marisa, when I saw this stunning shaker card, it made my heart sing! This is one of my all-time favorites of your cards, and THAT is really saying something! This color palette is SO beautiful, reminds me of my joy when I see God's artwork in fall leaves, one of my favorite times of the year for colors. This is so overwhelmingly stunning!!! God has given you such a wonderful artistic gift, and you use it so freely and with such beauty. I love that I can always see and/or feel your heart in your work, I think that is extraordinary. You are such a wonderful lady, it's a gift to know you.

    Best wishes,


    1. Thank you Joanne for your sweet comment!! It touched my heart! Hugs and blessings!!
