  1. Hi Y'all! Your design team's creations are "outstandingly wonderful! I'm not sure I've seen a collection of designers that are as unique and ecclectic but so skillfully in their own right just downright fantastic! I love the way you write what you use beneath each and every one of the DT cards. Having been on 10 teams, I have NEVER seen this! OOpsie DAisy - I am neglectful even on my own blog :( . This may be one of the first sites that I check out most of the sites of the DT's because how they have used some of the familiar images are "out of the box"...just how I personally love it! What a joy coming here for, I believe, the first time. Thanks for this experience. Kisses, Samara

  2. UGH! I just wrote this honkin' long comment...will you tell me if you don't get it and I will re-write it? Thanks. I'd like to rewrite it as some wonderful observations I had. Kisses, Samara

  3. Thank you ladies for choosing my card last time! Do love my Saturated Canary and I'm so glad to hear you carry them! The DT samples are outstanding and very inspirational! Keep up the good work!
