  1. Brilliant and wonderful!

  2. Hi, Mary! I’ve ordered from you several times and you seem to be the most knowledgeable person ( when talking StampinUp), I don’t know about other things!😀😀. My question is this, I didn’t realize how important the papers were when using the stamp sets. I am wondering if there is any way I can get ahold of some Santa’s Workshop paper. I’m probBly too late but I’m already thinking next Christmas! I’m still pretty new to cardmaking so I’m still learning how and what to order. Thx for your help. Bonnie

    The Flowering Desert was the first item on my pre-order. LOVE this set. And how you created the background sunset/glow is FABULOUS. Thanks the inspiration……Playing some more with this set this weekend.

  4. So glad to see SU have a good cactus set for all of the stampers out west! I immediately thought of you when I saw this set so am glad you got it out to play already. Great cards, Mary!!

  5. I just love this cactus set and can’t wait to start playing with it! Your cards have given me lots of inspiration! And I live in Nebraska but wish I lived in Arizona about this time of year!
