    I have been a follower of yours for some time but without leaving comments. I love your style of card making and wanted to add my congratulations to the news that you have been invited to join the Crative Expressions DT. Sue Wilson is a good talent spotter having signed up the very talented John Lockwood, whose Blog I also followed, to her DT. I hope it will not be long before we get to see you on C&C. Well done, Debbie. Gemma Couch

    Hi everyone, first of all what a stunning card, as is the one on Facebook. This is such an unusual colour combination but is a knockout ! I too saw your samples on create and craft when you were given a name check and rightly so ! They are quite distinctive and lend themselves perfectly to Sue Wilson’s dies. I am delighted that you have been asked to join the design team. It is a great opportunity for you and you totally deserve it. Nerves not necessary !!! Kindest regards Judith x

  31. Brenda Hanlon says:

  40. Donna says:

    Congratulations to Creative Expressions for recognizing your unique designs and talent… just please, don’t change what you do with your cards and designs and get caught up in “trendy” less sophisticated cards that won’t do justice to your beautiful artwork… I love “window shopping” (though I use a Mac Book Pro… no pun intended) and would love to know the weight paper used with your cards. Thank you for your generosity in sharing. You and your art works are valued and appreciated.

  41. Susan Brooks says:

    Hi Debbie. Many, many congratulations on joining the Creative Expressions Design Team. Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful cards. All of your cards are so beautiful and I am looking forward to seeing even more of them. Hopefully one day you will also be on C&C, you deserve to be.

  44. Donna Dailey says:

    Hello Debbie :0) I’ve been following your work since discovering you a few months ago; beautiful artwork, designs. Congratulations to CE for selecting an obviously very talented paper crafter.
    Question, please: I love the Happy Birthday card and wonder how you accomplished just the “border” with the background die. Do you have any tutorials on how you make some of your projects? Thank you for sharing beautiful work… true inspirations.
