    Morning Debbie, don’t put yourself down because this is a beautiful card, as all of yours are, I so look forward to Mondays to seeing what you have come up with. I will definitely have to have a go at this with the striplets I have and see how it turns out.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

    Lovely card with some of our old favourite dies too. The background paper is different to what we are used too now which is great, we have to break out every now and then. Would love to receive a card like this
    have a great week

    I know the feeling Debbie, l had the same problem with card I made yesterday [still not sure about it] However I must say I really like yours. I think we’re all guilty of being to critical of our own work. JJxx

    Hi Debbie, my first look at this card had me saying, this is beautiful! I love your design of cards and your use of dies is amazing, I always have that “why can’t I think to do that” moment, I’d be delighted with a card like this, keep em coming we love them!
    Regards Liz

    I opened your email & my first thought was ‘oh that’s beautiful’! What’s not to like about it? Would love to receive a card like this. As JJ says we are very critical of our own work.

    Good morning Debbie, what a beautiful card but I know what you mean,
    sometimes you just don’t think it’s not quite right : )

    Morning Debbie,
    I know just what you mean, but as my daughter said to me one day Mum somebody will love it and she’s right, I LOVE your card, a great use of the striplet die. .

    Hello Debbie

    I don’t mind the card but I understand your feelings. I made a card recently that I really did not like and I threw it in the bin… three times… nonetheless I finished it and gave it to my recipient who is going to get a frame for it, she just loves it! Go figure!

    I do like the way you have folded the tag to resemble a book and the flowers are very pretty. The striplets are effective.

    Hi Debbie, I know what you mean, but I usually put the card away for a couple of days then come back to it and usually something strikes me which helps. However I think your card is lovely just as it is

    I often have that feeling about cards I make – but your card is beautiful! I like the patterned paper behind the eternal rings. The colors are perfect!

  22. Steph says:

    His Debbie.
    I feel like that with most of what I make lol. I do a little farmers market each month so have to make many different cards per occasion for choice purposes and my husband knows the I’m not keen face, but as he always says “you can’t always make cards you’d like to receive ”
    NOT that this gorgeous card is tacky in ANY way, but there are people that do like the cards we’d prefer to hide or recycle lol you know what I mean right ? I love this card but there is obviously something you’re not sure about (although I’m not sure what) I’m glad you decided to share it with us after all : )

    Have a great week and continue sharing those cards you’re not too keen on lol.

  23. Rose in Chester says:

    Well Debbie, if you don’t want the card just you send it to me girl………………..
    It’s lovely. BUT I know what you mean, there are times when I feel just the same and then the recipients are over the moon and I think that it could have just been me being overcritical.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs, Rose
