I love Your cards! All of them are so inspirational on their own way! I think my favorite is the Guesteau’s Lawn Fawn card. It was the best of that Challenge, I just dropped my jaws when I saw it and still have that feeling. Happy New Year and thanks for the chance on this Giveaway!
Love all of your creations! Your work is hugely inspirational! I think my fave is July- the fall colored florals on the dark blue background 😍😍😍. Congrats on your new shop!
I always LOVE your cards Jessica, but that super-hero one just makes my heart smile. The background is gorgeous and Super-boy and his Super-pup are too cute!
All your cards are amazing. My favorites are Guesteau’s and the rollercoaster cards.

Hello and a happy New Year!
My favorite cards are the flower cards and the backgrounds with alkohol inks are really amazing .
All your cards are amazing. Really loved the background on the Super Hero card and really liked the MFT Ferris wheel. Thanks for a year of awesome cards can’t wait to see what you inspire me with in 2020.

Happy New Year!! My favorite card was January’s….I especially liked the whale holding the heart doing a backflip!
Happy New Year! All of your cards are beautiful and all of your alcohol ink projects are stunning! But if I HAD to choose, then my favorite card was the Gusteau’s shadow boxcard you made for Lawn Fawn. And my favorite alcohol ink piece was the pearlescent rainbow you posted in February. Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020!
Happy New Year, thanks for the chance to win : )
Your beautifully coloured flowers are my favourite cards.

I am new to your site and all your cards are fantastic. I love the chef and mouse card. My granddaughter and her dad were the mouse and chef for Halloween. That would have been a fun card to make for them.
