  1. Love it! “Dude” Why do I not think of this word when I am creating for men!?! Must be a generation gap. Terrific cards.

  2. Dena: I love both these cards! I love those big letters on the Dude card–and I love the Classic Garage DSP and colors. But that simply beautiful thank you card has won my heart! I love the wood texture and the green trees on watercolor paper! Yum! xoKathyxo

  3. I too, like the watercoloring effect that seems almost effortless. Your “happy little trees” made me smile.

  4. Love that ‘water colour’ tip … never would have thought to do that Dena. So clever how you modified the punch to make a ‘ticket’ shaped label, I will be totally stealing that idea 😉
