  1. Love those chairs! Too bad they’re going away! Great composition, Mary!

  2. i tie more knots than bows. there are lots of good videos on the internet. i may do one in the future 🙂 hugs, m

  3. hi suzette: honestly, i like to keep the sketches simple. i often use fashion and home d?cor catalogs for color and design ideas. hugs, m

  4. I love your cards. Just wondering where does the inspiration come from.

  5. Love it Mary. Hope I can get this one before it is gone. Never thought of separating the three on the one card and the colors seem to invite you to come sit down and relax with me.

  6. Absolutely adorable, Mary! I will miss this set!

  7. This is one of my favorite sets as I love antiques which includes different styles of old chairs! I love how you have show cased each chair! How clever! Very Cute Card!!! 🙂

  8. Mary, Any tips on bow tying. Maybe a video. Tying bows by myself seem to be a big problem for me. I usually tie a knot instead. But I sure would like to be able to tie a bow instead. Thanks.

  9. Mary, this is a wonderful card! 🙂 Can’t believe I missed that the flower brads are retiring…I will miss their cheerfulness! Can’t wait for the new catty 🙂

  10. What a great card! The colors look great with the set. This is one I’m not retiring! I love your bow and the brad holding the sentiment too!

  11. Perfectly put together, as usual!

  12. LOVE how you turned up the heat on the three colors – PERFECT for our quick approaching Arizona Summer. Fabulous Creations Mary – Hope your having FUN in Florida! Enjoy!

  13. The colorful chairs are adorable! Love that added scallop of Coral – great pop of color!

  14. I’ve always enjoyed this set for Retirement cards. It will be missed! This Color Pallet girls is really nice!
