My First Blog Candy Giveaway!

Good morning ladies,

Today I’m joining in the celebration of Sharon’s (notimetostamp) blog anniversary party and I’ve got lots of blog candy that I’m giving away.  I’ve designed samples for some of the items to give you ideas of what you can do with the blog candy.  The samples are not included in the giveaway.  I’m overstocked and must move these items out of my stamping room to make room for new goodies.

Here are the Rules to enter the drawing . . . Are you ready?

1.  View the designs I’ve posted on my blog and tell me which one you like the most and why.  Now this shouldn’t be too difficult since I’ve only been blogging for six weeks;

2.  One comment only to qualify, duplicates will not count;

3.  E-mail your friends and ask them to visit my blog to enter the blog candy giveaway.   Why?

The size of the prize will be determined by the amount of comments left.  There will only be one prize . . . the lucky winner takes it all!  If I receive 50 comments, Package A will be sent to the lucky winner.  If I receive 100 comments, Package B will be sent to the lucky winner.  If I receive 200 comments, Package C will be sent to the lucky winner.  Are ya’ll following, the more comments I get, the more I add to the kitty?  So, the more comments I receive the bigger the package the winner will receive.   The winning number will be chosen on Sunday, September 14, at 2:00 p.m.  by 

My friend, Joan Fricker, is giving away blog candy today in celebration of Sharon’s week long celebration, be sure to stop by her blog to sign up for another chance to win some blog candy.

 I purchased all items in the giveaway from Papertrey, Ink. 


50 Comments Required —- Package A above consists of:

  • Two Frosted Tin Tie Bags (small)
  • Four Coffee Bags consisting of: two small bags (white and kraft); two large bags (white and kraft)
  • Two Window Coffee Bags (one large, one small)
  • Four Glassine Bags (two large, two small)
  • Two Clear Boxes


100 Comments Required —- Package B above consists of:

  • Package A
  • Large Nugget Tin
  • 8 oz. Large Round Tin
  • 4 oz. Medium Round Tin
  • 2.5 Small Round Tin
  • Tea Tin


200 Comments Required —- Package C above consists of:

  • Packages A & B
  • Small Clear Paint Can
  • Medium Clear Paint Can
  • Large Clear Paint Can


It was hard to get the entire package in a good photograph.  I’ve taken a picture of the three clear paint cans to give you a close up view so that you can better see their size.  Below are pictures of the sample designs I made.


I designed this ensemble to give you examples of fun ways to decorate the items in the blog candy.  The designer paper used is from Papertrey, Ink’s First Fruit’s collection.  I used the retired set Happy Fall Y’all from Stampin’ Up! in the designs.  To see the recipe you’ll need to continue to the bottom of this post.


I had fun designing this card.  I stamped the scarecrow with Versafine black ink onto Naturals Ivory paper and watercolored the image.  The birds were both stamped twice and popped up with dimensionals.  I used nestibilities to die cut the images.  The leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch that I purchased at Michael’s.


This tag could be attached to one of the coffee bags or to the large paint can.  In the photograph it looks like I got off centered when I adhered the scarecrow image.  It is off centered, but it’s supposed to be, I designed it that way for this project, it looks better in real life.  The tag is a piece of chipboard from an SU package that I have.  I covered the back of it with DP as well.  I love this tag, it wasn’t part of the original ensemble, but when I saw Sharon’s tag this morning, I was inspired to design one. 


Isn’t this hinged nugget tin just the cutest thing!  I didn’t place any nuggets inside because I wanted you to see the lining in the bottom.  It was very easy to place it inside the tin, I just placed the nugget tin on the designer paper and traced around the bottom of it.  I cut inside the tracing lines using a paper cutter,  I then used a large corner punch from SU to round the four corners.  I adhered the lining inside using a piece of double sided tape.  I used the same paper to cover the outside of the tin.  If you look closely at the lid, you’ll see that I adhered Old Olive ribbon around the outer edges of the lid.  I used a craft knife to cut out the scarecrow and placed him on the tag using dimensionals.


These small tins are super easy to decorate.  I used double sided tape that I purchased at Scor Pal to adhere the DP paper to the tins.  I made a tag for the lid that says Happy Fall Y’all.  M&M’s or Skittles would be adorable in this tin. 


These bag toppers were quick and easy to make.  I simply used an old SU Halloween wheel and ran it across Naturals paper.  I used a round circle from another retired set to make the different colored moons across the topper.   I borrowed this design, I believe, from an old SU magazine that is sent to demos, at least I think I did, I remember seeing something like this about a year ago.  The little ghost tag was made using a Cuttlebug die.

Ladies, I wish you all the best of luck!

  6. Melissa Singfiel says:

    A very fun way to do blog candy! OK, my favorite design is definitely the paper doll ensemble. I love the doll, different outfits, and oh my that carriage and mice are the cutest things ever! They must have taken a lot of time. . .I couldn’t imagine actually letting someone play with them. 🙂

  7. Nancy Jensen says:

    Oh Yay! More Blog Candy! hehe!

    Congrats on starting your blog. I’ve really enjoyed looking at your beautiful creations. They are all sooooooo elegant. I love them all and it’s hard to pick a favorite… but since I have to, I’ll pick the calendar page for February. I love roses and music and the colors you choose are so beautiful together… I just love it!

    Now I need to let all my friends know about your blog… not only to get the prize to be larger, but so they can enjoy your beautiful cards and creations too.

  8. Kittie says:

    Jerri, Thank you for a chance to win such a great blog candy package. I love every single project uploaded on your blog. You have the unique and wonderful watercolor style and every project is mini masterpiece. Christmas is my favorite of all cards to make so I have to say my most favorite of your blog projects is the Christmas Poinsettia. I love every detail from the gorgeous watery color to the gold elegance of the image.

  9. Beth says:

    All of your work is just incredible. It’s so sad that the Me & Carrie Lou stamps will no longer be manufactured. If I had to pick one of your pieces as a favorite it would be the April page. Ti is just packed with color and I love a Hydrangea.

  10. Lois (clownmom) says:

    Your watercoloring is just incredible, Jerri. I loved the paper dolls of a few weeks ago. I remember trying to draw paper dolls and clothing as a kid and your project brought back memories to me. Of course, yours were sooooo much prettier than I could ever do. Thanks for your generosity with the blog candy. Your samples are awesome.

  11. Carole says:

    I love your calendars march and april. If I had to choose between those, I would choose march because the colors are so soft. Thanks for giving us a chance to win your blog candy.

  12. Carol P says:

    I really love the whole scarecrow set. I love scarecrows and it is such a cute one. Love all the punched out leaves and fall colors. I love everything about fall! Thanks for a chance to win.

  13. I love your ideas!!! You won’t believe this, but I have been looking everywhere for a great scarecrow stamp……only to find I already had it!!

    Thanks so much for your excellent designs!! I have put your blog on my Favorites list!

  14. Cyndi says:

    I have always been an admirer of your jaw dropping art on Splitcoast, especially your Dirty Dozen work. Wow! So when I learned that you had a blog I immediately added it to my google reader.
    I have always liked that you share all of the details and how tos of what you made so that I can attempt to make one myself……someday….maybe 😉
    My favorite on your blog as well as your SCS gallery is the Christmas ornaments card. I love that card. It is so beautiful.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win some pretty rockin’ blog candy!


  15. Anne says:

    Hi Jerri,
    I love everything that you have created with the Me and Carrie Lou stamps and it’s so hard to choose a favorite, because I love that they are all so different. But, your March Calendar page is stunning, and I love the way that the colors are so vibrant that they seem to jump off the screen at you. Your style of water coloring is awesome and it’s a style I would love to copy. I also enjoy that you use gold embossing. I haven’t embossed for years, but I’m just getting back to it again recently. Thank you so much for sharing.

  19. Wendy says:

  32. Linda says:

    My favorite design is your set of paper dolls. They’re gorgeous and I have to say when I first saw them I thought of my mom. She’s told me that she loved paper dolls as a little girl.

  33. Stephanie Eisele says:

    I couldn’t pick just one. I loved them all and are in awe of your talent.

  34. Marta Fosco says:

    No way I can pick one as my favorite! They are all awesome – but if I have to, then the tag – there is so much detail … and attached to one of the tins … WOW! Thanks for the chance to win and good luck with your blog!

  35. It is so hard to pick just one as everything you do is beautiful , but I have to say my fav is the calender it is just absolutely stunning , tyour coloring is fabulous !

  36. Tara Allison says:

    I love the tag. I have that Stampin’ Up set and love it. You have brought new life into it. All of your samples are beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win the goodies.

  37. Cheryl B. says:

    What generous blog candy! I think my favorite project is the scarecrow one followed closely by the paper dolls. I love flowers and have tons of flower stamps but I am trying to get away from flowers and love to see non floral projects. My dds would love to play with those paper dolls.

  38. Donna says:

    Wow! I’m speechless after viewing your blog! My first thought is that you are so far above me in your artistic abilities! Everything you do is my favorite! I only play with stamping…you, Jerri, are the real thing! I’m having a very difficult time choosing a favorite, but if I must, I’ll say the scarecrow project (maybe because of the wonderful texture you added with the leaves). All of your watercoloring is beautiful, your butterflies are gorgeous. I am in awe of your talent!

  39. Angelina says:

    You make very beautiful things on your website. My favorite blogs, though, are those that are beautiful and I think I can make as well. So, my favorite is the suitcase card in the blog entitled Sincere Thanks. It is a wonderful card and I know how you feel about getting thank you cards out. Great blog!

  40. Sara (hiinaz) says:

    I am so glad you are blogging. I love your gorgeous style. Your watercoloring is amazing and something to strive for. I had a hard time choosing my favorite design on your blog. One that I love is the lotion and gift card set. It’s a beautiful and elegant set.

  41. michelle gall says:

    wow your first givaway i love the fall themed stuff i just love fall thank you for the chance to win have a awsome day

  42. Nancy says:

    Oh, this is a hard choice between the paper dolls and the butterflies (and yes I would like a tutorial on these). Guess I would have to pick the paper dolls as just looking at them makes me feel like a kid again, except these are so much prettier than the ones I had as a kid. Thanks for the opportunity to win blog candy.

  43. Carol says:

    WOW! What amazing giveaways you’re offering! First of all, congrats on your new blog, first blog candy, celebrating Sharon’s blogging anniversary and for making such awesome items for fall!! I love all these scarecrows and the way you used them!! So cute!! I’m hard-pressed to select a favorite, but it would probably be the tag! I’m trying to visualize the recipients face while seeing that attached to a gift. WOW!, it’s just fantastic! TFS in the fabulous celebrations today!

  44. Casie says:

    I would say my favorite so far has been the Tulip Clutch Bag. I love how that turned out! But I do love everything you post!

  45. Julie says:

    Wow, your amazing! It’s hard to pick a favorite, I like everything, but I kept going back to your calendar pages, that’s a lot of work you put into those, and they are beautiful. Great job!

  46. Wow, you asked us to pick just one? So hard to do as I love all your work-the hummers are gorgeous on all the cards; like the purse and the briefcase, the paper dolls the bathroom set, but, after going back and looking at all posted, I am going to pick the poinsettia card as I love Christmas and the poinsettias that are out then. I still prefer the red ones. tfs and for a chance to win.

    Bev J.

  47. Cathy Massey says:

    I love all your work. I think your watercoloring is just beautiful. The calendar is turning out to be just great. If I could do work just half as good as yours I would be pleased.

  48. Jen says:

    Oh my goodness I can’t just pick one. You have so many wonderful pieces and samples threwout your entire blog that it is so hard to choose one. If I must choose just one I will have to say the scarecrow just because of the season, but seriously all your work is so wonderful.

    Thanks so much for the wonderful chance to win some awesome blog candy, and I wish you alot of success in your blog.


  49. Mindy says:

    I love your projects. I am not sure that I have a favorite, but do love the bag toppers and love the scarecrow ensamble as well. You are very talented and I would love to visit again. Thanks for the chance to play and win.

  50. evette says:

    amazing………talent, talent, talent. Now that I have my own craft room, not organized, which is why some of this prize would help me. The scarecrow is my favorite mainly due to my LOVING Halloween so much. My daughter was born on Oct. 28, wanted to have her on Halloween but could not stop her dang it, so it made the holiday that much more special for me and her. TY for the chance to win.

  51. DJ says:

    It’s hard to pick one, I love all of them I really donot have a favorite, lol.

  52. Angel says:

    I must say it was a pleasure to browse through your blog! I absolutely love your creations… especially the hummingbirds. I’ve been enjoying their presence at the new house here in SC. And you are a VERY talented designer. You have more talent in your pinky than I do at all! You must go through a lot of gold embossing powder. I’m off to dig mine out…. you have inspired me!!!

  53. k prakken says:

    Awesome work. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be the Lotion Gift Set. I think that would make a terrific gift.

  54. Darlene (SCS: akronstamperdpk) says:

    Your work is all so amazing it’s really hard to choose a favorite … but hands down mine is the “Ladies Vintage Ensemble”. I commented back when you made it because it really caught my eye and it still does!! Although I have to admit, the fall collection you did using the blog candy is just ADORABLE!!! You are so creative!

  55. Betty-Ann says:

    Since it’s my first visit here, I had a good look around your blog. I enjoy your style, very fresh and vibrant! I really like your featured fall collection, especially the tag and the bag topper. I just have a thing for tags, and I like the simplicity of the topper…fun, yet classy!

  56. Eileen McClean says:

    I love all of your samples, your work is exquisute,the details so amazing. If I had to pick one I would pick the March calendar but it is a tough decision. Conratulaions and please keep blogging.

  57. Cindy Cook says:

    I don’t even have to think about what part of your work I like best. It is hands down the floral watercolor images you make using the Me and Carrie Lou stamps. Your florals and hummingbirds are gorgeous. I absolutely love your calendar!

    As usual your work just leaves me speachless and so very impressed. Very hard to pick a favorite. But I do love the work on the Butterfly napkin rings, and I love what you did for the samples for the give-a-way with the scarecrows. Thanks for inspiring all of us!

  63. mary puskar says:

    I really adore the mice and cinderella pumpkin coach you did recently. All your work is gorgeous but I love the whimsy in that little set. Your giveaway is more than generous and I would love to be the winner!

  80. Pam Campbell says:


    God has truely blessed you with a talent for reflecting his creations on paper.

    My favorite is your March Calendar. The colors are so soothing. I have viewed it often at SCS to view the movement of color, and shading. I am trying to improve my own coloring with this medium. Small improvements at best right now.

    I really enjoy your blog and it is really wonderful to know that tho you are a crafter your heart belongs first to God and it shows.

  90. Shirley Lee says:

    I LOVE all your design and your calendar pages are stunning. It’s hard to pick a favorite but since I adore hummingbirds, I will select the March calendar page.

Just keep on creating your beautiful examples.

  91. I absolutely love the scarecrow set. The card is beautiful. What a great card to give out to family and friends to welcome fall. Everything in this collection is so detailed. It must have taken you a while to get it all finished. I love the colors and the leaves punch is great. Thanks for offering such an awesome blog candy. Your creations are beautiful. Keep up the good work. Angie

  93. Kris says:

    How can I just pick one?! I love the monogram cards….simple yet very elegant! But I would say my Fav is the Happy Fall Y’all card. I love fall and this card ROCKS! I so wish I could color like you. Great job!

  94. Ginny H says:

    I love, love, love the paperdolls. I have all boys also so I am always attracted to girly items. But then that Fall collection is to die for….I like them all.

  95. Pam Clay says:

    This is my first visit to your blog and I must say I am blown away! The watercoloring on your cards and projects is stunning. If I had to choose a favorite, I guess it would be your vellum butterflies. I am going right now to add you to my Google Reader!

  96. Linda Webb says:

    OMG, you are really a very talented artist. I love everything and I didn’t realize how using the gold EP made such a beautiful presentation. I will be visiting your blog daily. I love all of the flower items and the paper dolls are amazing. The Fall items are very warm and inviting and for today I think I will pick them as my favorite, tomorrow I may change my mind. Keep up with your wonderful talent.

  97. Claire says:

    oh wow , what an awesome blog candy .

    I love your samples and the things you have created.

    Thank you for the chance to win

  98. Nancy C. says:

    This is my first visit to your blog and I love what I see! I especially like the justrite monogram items as I just recently purchased the set and am experimenting with them! Thanks for the inspiration!

  99. Susan G says:

    The Fall set is just gorgeous. Those tins are adorable. The leaves really add the final touch to everything. I found your blog through Sharon Johnson, and boy am I glad I did! I can’t wait to further investigate everything. Congratulations on getting started, and thanks for offering such wonderful candy.

  100. Darlene Gabriel says:

    What wonderful sets you are giving away. Thanks for the chance to win one of them.
    I’ve just started looking through your creations and already I’ve fallen in love with the calendar, the monogram set and especially the paper doll ensemble. Your creations are amazing – you have a gift. I can’t wait to look through the rest. My favourite??It’s impossible to choose – if I have to it would probably be the paper doll ensemble. That is for today – who knows about tomorrow………..

  101. Beth Norman says:

    OMG your work rocks! I can choose only one favourite. Oh my, that is tough. I think it goes without saying that your watercolour rocks my world. I’m having a tough time with only one though, so I’ll pick the paper doll series. When I first saw it in the Fan Club gallery, I was in awe. Maybe it was the little girl in me, but I thought it was so much fun, and such a different thing to create.

  102. Rosemary says:

    Hard to choose just one project. They are all completely amazing! The scarecrow card is simply beautiful so I think that will be my choice. Thanks for sharing all the wonderful blog candy.

  103. Pat says:

    I just now found your blog and am so glad I took the time to browse and sign up for future postings. Your work is awe–some and I love everything I see. As much as I love everything, I must say that the Fall (scarecrow) card and ensemble is what intrigues me most. I’ve been trying to come up with a great idea for our pastor appreciation next month, and THIS is going to be my inspiration. Thanks for sharing and thanks for the opp to win your fantastic candy.

  104. Charlene H. says:

    How exciting for you – your first blog candy! Well, I absolutely LOVE your calendar set. I think what I love about it is how you emboss in gold and then color in the image. They are some of the most beautiful images I have seen in a long time. I would love to be able to do that. I may even give it a try one of these days. Thanks for the chance for the blog candy but I really think your samples should be included! They are so gorgeous!!!!

  105. Susan G says:

    This is my second comment–not to be counted for the candy since I’ve already commented about that. I have just journeyed through all your posts, and I just wanted to say what fabulous work you do. Any of your cards could be framed and used for art. They just take your breath away. I couldn’t believe you said you wanted to take some painting classes. You could be teaching! I’ll be a regular visitor just to see what fabulous things you have planned next. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with all of us.

  106. Anna says:

    The gold embossing and details you do on everything is just beautiful. My fav is the poinsetta! Thanks for offering up the blog candy!

  107. Darlene L says:

    Just pick one? They were all just fabulous–choosing a favorite is really difficult–I will pick the card. Thanks for the blog candy opp and I will pass the word to my stamping group and other stamping friends by e-mail. I do not have a blog. darlene

  108. LouBelle says:

    My favorite item on your blog is the floral monogrammed card gift set you made for a friend. I love the simplicity, but elegance of the cards. I love the whole ensemple, including the box!

  109. Alyssa says:

    Ha Ha! When I first read your entry, I was under the impression that you were a new stamper! Then I started looking through your entries and I am completely in awe and amazed! Gorgeous work! I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite, but I would have to say your first entry is my favorite. Your banner was the first thing that caught my eye and I was hoping you had posted an entry of it. Incredible! I hope that you post some tutorials soon, as watercoloring is one of my favorite things to do, but am not very good at. Thanks for the chance at some amazing blog candy! I’ve spread the word by adding a link to your blog on mine :o)

  110. Carla says:

    Hi Jerri! I love all your projects so much, it’s too hard to choose! I kept going over and over them trying to pick just one! If I had to pick, I think it would be the Paper Doll ensemble because of the extraordinary coloring and exquisite detail! The little accessories are amazing! OK. I did it. But just so you know, I absolutely love the Florals and Aviary sets and the Watercolored Calendar pages, too!
    Thanks for the chance to win the awesome blog candy!

  111. kathy says:

    I LOVE the small round tin you’ve decorated; it makes me smile just to look at it!

  112. SueBee says:

    I really like the look of your creations, they are colorful and yet have a vintage look to them. Vintage in a way that they remind me of cards my family received for Christmas (the Poinsetta card especially) and for birthdays when I was just a child. Yes, I could be considered vintage too. Thanks so much for sharing your talent and being a great inspiration.

  113. Harriet Skelly says:

    I love all your watercoloring but if I had to pick a favorite it would be your projects using the Me and Carrie Lou stamps. I guess I like them best because they are unique and they lend themselves to your gorgeous watercoloring! Thanks for a chance to win this awesome blog candy.

  114. Jody Marcelis says:

    Jeri, You are making us choose? That is too hard, all your work is so beautiful! If I have to choose then it would be your calenders(all 12 months). I have loved these since them on SCS when you where part of the Dirty Dozen. That is why I am so excited you have started this blog, so I can learn more from you. Thank you for the time you take in sharing your talents with all of us.

  115. Jessica G says:

    Your recent scarecrow card is awesome with its amazing coloring technique, but my most favorite project is your Paper Doll Ensemble. Wow! Such a creative idea and the details are outstanding. Plus, the mice and pumpkin carriage are the absolute perfect additions. Keep up the wonderful work!

  116. karla says:

    I heard about your blog from Angel and come over for a peek. Wow, the detail on your work is just wow!
    I loved the butterfly napkin rings, but, I think my favorite was the scarecrow tag in this post. I’ve just always loved tags! And fall is my favorite season.
    Thanks for the chance!

  117. Chris says:

    Wow….your work is beautiful…….such care taken with every detail. To pick a favourite is difficult, but I think the calendar pages are wonderful. I will be visiting this blog often.

  118. Linda C. says:

    Of course all of your artwork is amazing!! If I had to chose one it would be the lotion bottle & gift set! It’s a gift that keeps on giving!

  119. I love the scarecrow set in this post. All of the different parts are so fun and full of ideas.

  120. MaryBeth says:

    All your work is beautiful and I love your attention to detail. If I had to choose just one it would be the fall scarecrow card and set you made. I love the fall colors and the amazing details and fabulous fall leaves! Thanks for the chance to win your awesome blog candy.

  121. Jerri,

    You know you can just give me any of your stuff any time.. you don’t have to have blog candy to get rid of it! lol As always I love your work. Think I am one of your biggest fans. Was so great to meet you during the summer. I think I have to say that my favorite piece of yours so far is your Watercolor Calendar, January page. Now it isn’t because that is my birthday month or anything like that.. it’s drop dead gorgeous!! Thanks for a chance to win your blog candy!

  122. Sue M. says:

    All of your work is beautiful. However, I have to say my favorite is the Poinsetta card from July 29. I just love how you colored the image and made it stand out. Great job! Thanks for the great blog candy you are giving us the chance to win!

  123. Val Pass says:

    All your work is beautiful. My favorite is the cards and gift box. Thanks for the chance to win your blog candy!

  124. Mel says:

    Love all your work – But I must say that the March calendar is my favorite – the colors are just beautiful and it happens to be my birth month.

  125. Bev Smith says:

    Fabulous! I love everything you have posted. I must say, I am in the mood for fall, so consider it my fav.

  126. Inge says:


    great candy! Thanks for the chance to win!

  127. Gina Sisco says:

    I love the fall set, the scarecrow is gorgeous. Can’t believe you just started blogging, very talented.

  128. pegg says:

    I love your work! It’s hard to pick one but I love your Paper Dolls Ensemble post. I appreciated the close-up pictures so that we could see the details. Your watercoloring is amazing and I love learning from you. They looked like pieces you would find in a museum somewhere!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!

  129. Vickilyn says:

    there are soooo many great projects to choose from….

    I love the Thank You suitcase
    The monogram purse
    the watercolored butterflies on vellum
    and the PAPERDOLLS!!

    Thanks for the inspiration and the opportunity!!

  130. Toni Storie says:

    Oh my word! You have created so many beautiful things! I have to say that my favorite is your paperdoll collection! It is my favorite because (theoretically) I could recreate those for my daughter! I remember playing with paper dolls with my sister! Thanks for the chance to win and for sharing your wonderful projects!

  131. SusieK says:

    What a talent you are!! I just adore your scarecrow card! I have that Happy Fall Y’ll stamp set, but never came up with anything half as beautiful as that. Believe me I will print that, study it, and try to copy it 😀 My other favorite item was yesterdays calandar of April – those colors are just stunning together. Keep up the awesome blog and thanks for the chance to win blog candy.

  132. Kellye Newburn says:

    Pick just one, you say? Make it hard on a girl, would you? I am so happy Sharon linked to your blog; all of your creations are beautiful! I suppose I will pick the lotion bottle gift set as my favorite. The petunia is gorgeous. Thank you for taking the time to share your art!

  133. Jenn S says:

    Everything is just beautiful, but I’m drawn to the simplicity of the thank you JustRite monogram cards.

  134. bluemoon says:

    Jerri kindly emailed me and told me I had not picked my favourite item from her blog to play… well that is a very difficult task Jerri. My mouth is hanging open, I’m sooo glad I got to do more peeking on your blog, you are so talented, and your pieces are all more than incredible. It is a very difficult pick, I will say I am partial to choosing your TULIP CLUTCH PURSE, but really I love it all. wowzers! You blow me away! I’m off to spread the news! 🙂

  135. I think I like the Halloween goody bags best, probably because I have little one’s, in particular one with an October Birthday so can see using this idea often. BTW, I loved the Lavender Roses you did for the Dancin’ With Dee challenge. Great work on all of your crafts.

  136. peggy lee says:

    This is really, truely the best blog candy I’ve ever seen! As I went thru your blog to find a favorite, I was reminded again how talented you are. My favorite is the pointsettia from way, way back. The colors are amazing, just the right shades together that just make that card striking. The gold sets it off with some dazzle and the circle adds some interest. Have a great day, Jerri!

  137. BeckyL says:

    Are you kidding……which ONE do I like the most…..I have to say that I am adoring your calendar pages, just beautiful, but I’ll pick the butterfly napkin ring and placecard. They are so delicate. You do some lovely work.

  138. Jackie says:

    How are you supposed to pick one of your creations?! I love them all, but the little Halloween toppers are just too cute. I really do like both full sets, nicely done!

  139. Vanessa Yu says:

    Wow, you have a very distinctive style. . .it is definitely a touch of grace. What a very feminine look, and very beautiful. My favorite project is your paper dolls, then the petunia cards and lotion. I like the paper dolls because I loved paper dolls growing up, and these ones are just so fancy shmancy! These would make a fabulous gift. They are gorgeous.

  140. Swedie says:

    I love your Fall creations.. they are all so bright and colorful. The scarecrow is so cute. Hope your blog continues to flourish.


  141. Wow girl you have some fantastic stuff for us to look at. I loved all your creations…you are extremely talented. What I liked the most was the Paper doll collection. I am in the same position, no girls just boys and like you I save for future girls. I love the job you did. It is truely a work of art. You would never know you just started blogging. I only started a month ago and you have much more done to decorate your blog than I do. We should talk sometime.
    All the best and I will be back.

  142. Karen says:

    Thanks so much for sharing. I can’t believe that you hand colored those stamps. They look so beautiful.

  143. Anne says:

    First off everything on your blog is absolutely wonderful! My favorite thing you have created so far are the the sweet little mice you created- how precious! Love those.

    I really love your calendars also- just beautiful!

    I’ll be checking your blog to see more wonderful creations.

  144. Cassie says:

    Your art is so amazing! I’m not sure I could pick a favorite project, but they are all so beautiful. I love the fall collection that you posted. There is so much detail in your creations. You most certainly have an eye for creating and placement. God has obviously blessed with talent, so keep on creating and glorifying Him!

  145. Marcia Luisa says:

    Now You are being totally unfair :-)… how can you ask for a favorite among such beauties. I had seen your named refered too in several threads on SCS, bud did not realize the scope of your talent. Since you are twisting my arms, I would say that my favorites are the Paper Dolls, followed by the Ladies Vinatage Ensemble a very close second. Your Calendar renditions also have me in awe!!! Thanks for sharing your passion with us.
    Marcia Luisa — memories4you on SCS

  146. Janet Sisk says:

    WooHoo! You are already up to giving away package B and I bet you will get WAY more than 200 responses. News of blog candy travels fast! As for your projects, I love them all. You are very talented and gracious to share your artistry with us. I think I will have to pick the paper dolls and mice as my favorites. They are so detailed and I love the little carriage. Thanks for the chance to win some wonderful blog candy.

  147. Sharon in NE says:

    I had to stop and think when you said you’ve only been blogging for six weeks because I KNOW I fell in love with your watercolored hummingbird picture over a year ago. So, I obviously saw it elsewhere (this is the one you made mid 2007). Unfortunately, I am JUST now realizing you have a blog. (Thank goodness for blog candy notices, I might have not have found you if it weren’t for that.) Your work since that large watercoloring is even more beautiful. I think the other watercoloring pieces (birds, flowers) are probably my favorites, but your recent fall one is great too. I’m just delighted I found you Jerri!

  148. JenMarie says:

    Your blog is awesome! I LOVE the creations in the Aug 14th entry!

  149. Gail S. says:

    I love your scarecrow/fall set! I think my favorite is the tag—guess I’ll have to check out Sharon’s, too! lol I recently purchased the MS punch you used and it works great for these fall leaves! Love your coloring. The only thing I don’t have is the paper from Papertrey to be able to duplicate your efforts (though I could never match your excellent coloring!)—-oh, and your blog candy!! lol I’d be ecstatic to win something like this!
    Gail S.

  150. Pat M says:

    Wow, after going through your blog it is impossible to pick just one favorite. Your art work is beautiful. Some of my most favorites were the scarecrow set, the calendar pages and the paper dolls (because of the fond memories I have of playing with paper dolls when I was little, although never were this beautiful). Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy.

  151. Sue R says:

    WoW, picking one is impossible!! I love all your cards, stationary sets and especially your calendars. After seeing your blog (so glad I found it) I now have the Me & Carrie Lou CD on it’s way to me. I can’t wait to get it and get some of the stamps. Your work is beautiful:) Like a painting, so much detail and elegance. I love it and look forward to reading your blog daily.
    Thanks for the change to win.

  152. Collette says:

    You made this really difficult. I had to pick 3 of them: Tulip clutch, blue masculine briefcase card & the gold embossed lotion dispenser cover. (LOVE all your gold embossed stuff, actually). Love the purse/briefcase because they look so realistic. (I want that red purse!) And your coloring on the gold embossed items is absolutely gorgeous. Very delicate, yet you use the prettiest color combinations. LOVE that I found this blog! (and only 6 weeks old? Amazing!)

  153. Tolegranny says:

    I just love the colours in the fall collection. My favourite is the card and tag. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to win. I’ve never entered blog contests before. Not even sure if I’ve done this right.

  154. Tamera says:

    I love the scrarecrow, and the beautiful fall colors. Congrats on the blog and first giveaway. Thank you for giving me a chance to win.

  155. You know my ALL time favourite is your calendar….any of the pages really. But I have to say this scarecrow set you just did today has it all in cute factor. I LOVE it Jerri. Wonderful blog candy friend!

  156. Danita Rixen says:

    I love your creations with the scarecrow. It is my favorite! You do fantastic work, and I enjoy coming to your site and looking.

  157. Ruth Earle says:

    I particularily love the Christmas cards you made. I like the way you combined the Rejoice stamp from Flourishes with the Christmas ornaments from Me and Carrie Lou. Each ornament is a work of art with all the crystals and gold embossing and gorgeous coloring. And the Poinsettia card is beautiful simply because of the coloring. I’d love either one if I ever received such a work of art for Christmas and it would become a treasured keepsake.
    What I also love and appreciate, Jerry, is how you share your heart in this posting – the devotional and your thoughts about it. It is something I need to hear and to remind myself of. Thank you.

  158. Brenda H. says:

    Congrats on starting a blog…you go girl!! I don’t know how you girls do it! All your creations are totally awesome…how can I pick just one favorite?? I was going to choose the Lotion Bottle Gift set, or the Watercolor Calendar, but I think I’ll have to go with the Scarecrow Set. Your coloring is just amazing, and I love this time of year…and my B’day is on Hallowe’en. Now this sweet candy would be one awesome gift!! You’ve already got 154 comments…so we’re well on the way to Gift package “C”…Yah!! Thanks for being SO generous! Keeping my fingers crossed…
    ~Brenda H.

  159. Cindy S says:

    Not hard? Are you kidding? 🙂 I’ve loved everything from your blog. I do think I’m partial to your May Calendar though…..My birthday and anniversary are both in may (though I really liked March’s calendar too…)

  160. Vicky Gould says:

    Let’s see, hmmmm – paper dolls? calendars? that awesome lotion set? Oh my, Jerri, I absolutely adore all your talent -laden projects. Your coloring is above the most talented I’ve seen! Hmmmm – that little carriage with the paper dolls – maybe???

  161. Caiti says:

    I love your paper dolls! They’re gorgeous and so creative! I also loved the hummingbird card you made on Aug 4th. Beautiful!

  162. Melissa says:

    I think that your calendars are my favorite. The amount of details and the richness/vibrantness of your colors are amazing. I think that January is my favorite page, although it’s hard too chose. Thanks for the chance to win.

  163. laurlynn says:

    I like it all but to pick, I’d say the bag toppers. My kids have bdays around Halloween so for a whole week, we’ve are giving treats every time we turn around. They look easy and fun! Thanks for the fun.

  164. Jenn says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE those halloween bag toppers. The circles for tree color is a great idea!
    Best of luck to you and your “newish” blog! 🙂

  165. Cammy V says:

    Wow, I love your work! You are truly talented!
    My favorite is the tag. I love tags but don’t have a clue when it comes to designing one–love it!!

  166. Sharon W says:

    I love the bag toppers…It is very Fall like weather here today and I am in the Halloween spirit! Thanks for the chance to win.

  167. you are so talented…

    Congrats on your new blog, it is fabulous. Thanks for the opportunity to win these giveaways!!!

  168. Rachel says:

    The samples are all wonderful! My favorite is the tag.

  169. LeAnne says:

    WOW, everything you’ve done is fabulous, but the Ladies’ Vintage Ensemble is stunning! That gets my vote!

  170. Kathy says:

    I love all of your items in your blog. Your eye for detail is amazing. The colors – WOW. I think my favorite is the calendar – each page is so beautiful. Thank you for the opportunity to win some blog candy, but more importantly thank you for sharing your artisitic gifts with us.
    Kathy P.

  171. Juanita says:

    I love all your creations, but the nugget tin is my favorite. I love it because the lining on the bottom is such a nice detail, but I also love it because you can fill it with yummy goodness!

  172. Rebecca says:

    I just love your calendars, march is my favorite. You are very creative. Thanks for the chance to win your candy.

  173. Debbie Hamm says:

    What great stamping. All of your samples and ideas are cheerful, bright and reminds me Fall is right around the corner. Giving a chance to win them is so nice. I love reading your blog and seeing your creations.

  174. Ashley says:

    I love the calendar you are making! It’s divine!

  175. dr.fine says:

    Your work is so beautiful, especially with flowers and butterflies. Sharon and you are my two favorites. Your purse, glove, and accessories set just blew me away. Who would not love to get a card from you? I love this Fall ensemble and the wonderful colors. I have both the SU and the PT set and can’t wait to try my hand at this. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

  176. Angela says:

    Oh, how can I possibly choose just one item!!!! The detail that you put into your work is totally amazing. I love the briefcase Thank you card that you posted. I love the lotion samples that you did. The list goes on and on.

    Thanks for the inspiration

  177. Mary G. says:

    WOW, what an awesome set…your designs are unbelievable!! WOW.
    Thanks for the opportunity 🙂

  178. theresa forge says:

    my favorite is your scarecrow tag. he is so representing fall in the very best way!!!!!

  179. I love all your projects and it took me several minutes to decide which one I liked best…. My favorite is the scarecrow set. I love the colors you picked. The tag is very cute. Thanks for sharing it and thanks for the giveaways!!!

  180. Jovita says:

    Your work is beautiful! my favorite is the Feb. calender, great colors!

  181. Kate says:

    All of your projects are amazing, but my favorite is the May calendar page. I just love roses. Thanks for a chance to win some “candy”. I’ll keep checking your blog, now that I’ve found it. Very nice.

  182. Kellie says:

    Well – I think that might have been the hardiest decision I have had to make all day!! Of course I love all your work but since you are forcing me to choose I love the butterflies. Since I am a huge butterfly fan. I can’t wait to get out my Twinkling H2O’s to play.

  183. Rae says:

    Wow! Great stuff and we have to work for it! I am enjoying your beautiful designs and love the calendar pages. Lovely elegance!

  184. What fun and useful CANDY!!! Thank you for the chance to win!


  185. Chris R. from Iowa says:

    This is my first time to your blog, I am pretty sure. I love the scarecrow and all the details! I love little boxes so my absolute favorite is the little round box with the scarecrow face. I just love that leaf punch you used. Wonderful colors and paper. Super job. Now, I will have to come back and look at more of your blog. Thanks for sharing all your creativity!

  186. Sue D says:

    Wow, I’m just blown away by your beautiful watercoloring! I don’t think I found anything I didn’t like but because it is heading into the fall season and I own the same SU scarecrow set I will pick your whole fall ensemble as my favorite. You have given me many ideas for that set and I will be looking forward to any tutorials on your watercoloring tips.

  187. buzzy says:

    Every time you post another page of your calendar pages I call over my DD’s (10 and 6) and watch their cute faces be in awe of how beautiful stamped images can be. The downside is they think I should be able to recreate them! Your style is inspirational!

  188. Alicia says:

    I have been a huge fan of yours on SCS, and just now found your blog!! I just marked it in my favorites, so will be visiting regulary. Your work is just stunning. I think my favorite that I have seen so far on your blog is the gift set of note cards, but everything you do is absolutely beautiful. Even though I probably won’t win your gift, I am so happy to have found your blog!

  189. Giovana says:

    WOWWW, this is my first time stopping at your blog and everything in it is great!!!! You are so talented that is very difficult to choose only one creation.
    I browsed your blog and I would say I love the Birthday card you made:

    Thanks so mcuh for your generous blog candy.
    God bless

  190. Kathy Hering says:

    My favorite is the scarecrow card…It is awesome…love the coloring and the sewing…

  191. Michelle Ip says:

    All your creations are beautiful! but I’d have to say my favorite is the set of thank you cards from Aug 11. I love the paper and the colors and that they are perfect for guys! It’s hard to find good inspiration for male cards. Glad to have found your blog!

  192. Chris Franks says:

    The fall ensemble is so pretty! My favorites have to be the cards that you made for Stacey, though. They are gorgeous, great for any occasion and I love the paper! I love the sewing, too. I will have to give that a try.

  193. Linda T. says:

    I can only narrow my favorites down to all of the calendar pages. They are absolutely stunning. I love your use of embossing.


  194. Crystal (SCS happy2stamp4ever) says:

    WOW. Seriously, WOW! What a great candy giveaway! I love what you’ve done with all the samples, too!!

    It’s really hard to narrow it down…you do BEAUTIFUL work – so elegant!
    I’ll have to narrow it down to two items…one is in your first entry (27th of July?), the gorgeous ‘oh holy night’ poinsettia card, and your calendar pages would also be another one….they’re gorgeous!!

    Thanks for your generosity!

    I’d have to say my favorites are the tins. I’m really into altering tins right now. They are such an easy but thoughtful gift.

  196. Debby says:

    My favorite would be the tag, I love all the details on it. You coloring is perfect.
    Thanks for the chance to win.
    Angel hugs

  197. Nettie says:

    How evil to make us only choose one! All your artwork is incredibly beautiful. If I was pressed to pick a favorite it would have to be the April Calendar page. The vivid colors just make it pop.

    Thanks for a chance at this awesome candy!


  198. Sheila says:

    My favorite is the tag. You did such a great job!!

  199. Betz61 says:

    I like the scarecrow oblong candy box the best but I simply love your card tote and cards at the bottem of the first page I love stella ruby paper and you did such a great job with it.

  200. Nimue says:

    I love your blog. It’s so elegant and graceful. It’s just about impossible to choose 1 but since my back is to the wal,l at this second in time, I’ll choose the second card posted on August 6 under the title ‘Floral Aviary Ensemble Part II. Why this card? It’s the depth in the card. It is so not 2 dimensional! Of course the stamp, the colouring, and the evident skill have something to do with my choice as well. – Nimmy

  201. Cathy says:

    WOW – what a talent you have been blessed with!!! I am in awe of all your creations. The best (trust me they are all the best) for me are the butterflies. My mom and I have a ‘butterfly connection’ with my dad who passed away. Whenever we see a Monarch we know he’s saying hello. Now that she’s battling cancer, they are even more special to me. Thank you so much for starting to blog and share your gift. I’ll be back often and I’m off to email your blog to all my friends!!!

  202. Sandi Dailey says:

    Jerri, how in the world am I suppose to pick just “one” design/project. I love your comment that it wouldn’t be hard because it has only been six weeks!! You bet. My very favorite out of everything by a fraction of an inch is your whole Paper Doll Assemble. The reason of love this is because it brings back so many memories of my childhood and playing with my paper dolls (couldn’t really afford the real ones when I grew up, but my sisters and I had a lot of paper dolls and we really prized them just like they were gold). The detail you put into each little accessory and the dresses is so amazing. Of course everything you do is amazing. And of course, coming up a close second is the lavender card you did for your mom (can’t remember the title, but believe it was the May calendar???). You already know the reason I love that card. And finally, I have to put in a 3rd favorite as I too just love scarecrows — so I love every single sample you put on your blog today with the scarecrow. The watercoloring and vivid colors are out of this world — just like I have told you before, you need to be an illustrator for children’s books!! Sorry this is so long, but there is no way you can expect me to limit my comments when you ask “which one do you like and why.” Hugs, Sandi (P.S. Your site is “THE” blog to go to girl!!)

  203. Dot says:

    I really like the scarecrow tag! I love the way you added the ‘branch’ look to it! It has a very fall like quality to it also.


  204. Desi Wilson says:

    I’ts very seldom I am absolutely floored by such beautiful coloring and technique; but I am today. I loved everything, I was drawn to the tag; I loved the tag!
    Thanks for offering such great gifts.

  205. leanne says:

    I love all your projects….it is hard to pick just one. I think my favorite is your second post on July 29th. I love both Christmas cards that you created. They are just beautiful! Thanks for a chance to win some goodies!

  206. Maxene Choi says:

    I love your watercolored calendar that you designed the month of February with Valentine’s Day in mind the best. It’s just so eye-catching and gorgeous with the bright pink against the black music sheet – it’s awesome!!!!! It just POPS right out at the viewer and draws them in. You are so great with watercoloring, I’m inspired to keep trying it!

  207. Beth Jacobs says:

    WOW… love all of your work!!! I think my favorite would be the nugget tin. It is really hard to choose. You are very talented!

  208. JoAnn Burnham says:

    All your projects are beautiful. I especially like the May calendar as my youngest daughter was born in May. But I love February also. I think the red roses against the black music paper looks gorgeous.

  209. Since I love fall, your scarecrow items would have to be my favorite. Everything is just beautiful.

  212. Q says:

    Wow…. I love all your projects. The paper doll dresses are so beautiful and intricate. I also love, love the March calendar you made with the hummingbirds.

I’m telling all my friends – thanks again!

  213. Deena says:

    First off I have to say Wow!! I am soooo happy that you decided to start blogging! Secondly, it was near impossible for me to pick just one ‘favorite’ design!! I have seen your awesome creations on SCS and I am in awe of what I’ve seen here!
    O.k since I had to pick just one…the paper doll ensemble is it! I love the exquisite details and the accessories especially, because I make 1″ scale miniatures and dollhouses and I can identify with the intricate cutting and detail work that you so lovingly put into this set! Thanks so much for the chance at this fabulous candy!
    smiles,Deena (moonrise)

  214. Hilda says:

    Wow! All of your projects are beautiful. I guess I’ll have to pick your April calendar page as my first choice, with the paper doll ensemble running a close second. Your watercolor images are absolutely stunning!

  215. Sorry Jerri–I just got so excited with all the fun candies!! My favorite is August 14th-A Gift for a Friend. I like the colors, the stamp, the stitching, the pearl!! What a great gift.

  216. Ruth says:

    Nice. I am sure you are excited to have had so many responses.
    I am loving your post from the 5th of August. I love hummingbirds and the colors that you used are beautiful.

  217. I will have to pick the May Calendar page. I love butterflys and this is a beautiful page. Thanks.

  218. Darla says:

    Just ONE favorite??? Well the Happy Fall Y’All set drew me to your blog, but I never dreamed anyone could do such gorgeous things with paperdolls, cinderella mice sets and butterfly napkin rings! The detail is phenomenal on all of it! And who would DARE play with such a gorgeous paperdoll ensemble!

  219. MarilynY says:

    Just love your Happy Fall Y’All ensemble. Now I have to dig out mine and take a better look at it again. Your ideas are great and inspiring. And it’s just in time for Fall. Your paperdolls and Cinderella’s carriage and mice brings back fun childhood memories. I like your concept of making dresses and accessories with paper and vellum. Am now considering attempting to follow your lead and make a set for my little nieces who have no idea what paper dolls are all about. Great Work! Thanks for sharing.

  220. Julie Howard says:

    I have two favorites… one if the scarecrow set – I love fall, and these projects are just beautiful!

    second, I love the thank you cards with the J monograms.. beautiful cards, and J is my initial 🙂

    Fun, fun!

  221. Barbara says:

    Well I have to say I am partial to that scarecrow tag…. I love fall, I love fall colors and he just makes me smile. All your projects are fabulous Jerri

  224. Sharon says:

  225. Judy B. says:

    Great samples; I love the colors! My favorite is the bag toppers because I love
    Autumn and trees.

  226. Jen says:

    All of your cards are beautiful. My favorite would have to be the Monogram note cards with the J.

  227. Kim R says:

    The paper doll set was amazing – the detail was unbelievable – I am with you and love the dress with the sexy see thru slip area. Looking at each one brought the little girl out in me. I also really like the mongrammed thank you note gift sets that you made – they are so nice and something that we can all use. Thank you for sharing the pictures of your many talents and for offering your “first time ever” blog candy.

  228. Lindsay says:

    Hum….. I took a gander at all your posts, and I gotta say its hard to choose a favourite… but one thing I do love which seems to be an element that you use on alot of your cards is the gold embossed out lining on alot of your images…. I think that it gives them a added touch of elegance!!!

  229. Elaine says:

    Hello Jeri Kay, This is an incredible blog and your candy is equally impressive! I just LOVE the tulip bag that you did a while back…it has white faux stitching and is just super cute!! Love everything that you color and paint and design. What a treat to visit your blog every day! 🙂

  233. Charmaine says:

    Goodness…what great blog candy! I love the samples you have in this post…the colors really struck me. I also liked what you did with the paper dolls…so fabulous.


  234. Jenna says:

    My absolute favorite would be your paper dolls! I LOVED paper dolls when I was younger and my favorites were the ones I’d buy as books that you had to cut out. They were series’ of old-fashioned ladies in flowing dresses very similar to yours!

  235. Rachel E says:

    I really love the fall and Halloween items that you’ve posted but my favorite would be the vellum napkin ring holder. I’ve never seen anyone else create something like that. It’s beautiful.

  236. I love the fall tag and tin as you can add the tag to a layout and make a accordian tag to go into the tin and give as a gift then. what is greater than that??

  237. Diana says:

    Your work is simply awesome… I am torn between the paper dolls and the calendar.
    The child in me favours the paper dolls while the adult in me favours the calendar.
    I admire the work and effort you put into all your projects, the colour choices in the fall items are colors I love … I’m glad I found your blog and know I will be back repeatedly to see your other creations…. thanks for sharing your projects …. they have inspired me.

    (Pattie’s passion)

    I Scrap So All Moments Are Remembered!!!

  252. I already responded, but I didn’t answer “why” I like the paper dolls most (and Jerri brought that to my attention, so here is my reply:

    I have loved paper dolls almost my entire life! They hold a special place in my heart-my first “crafting” experience was cutting “paper dolls” from a catalog and making clothes for them with wall paper sample books. My younger sister and I spent an entire winter on that project, until there weren’t any “paper dolls” left to cut out! I was six and Gail was five-back in 1962!

    Of course, your paper dolls are much nicer, and certainly more beautiful! I
    sincerely hope that someday you will have granddaughters who will enjoy them
    as much as you seemed to enjoy making them! My two granddaughters had their
    first experience making paper dolls when they were 3 and 5 years old…we
    had a blast!

  253. nancyruth says:

    My favorite is your calendar, each page is more exquisite than the next! And of course my *ROSE* card, which i absolutely CHERISH! Hugs, NR

  254. SueB says:

    OK, not being lazy here as there were, after all, just 2 pages worth to review, but methinks your fall ensemble is AWESOME! I LOVE seasonal stamp sets and that punch used – have been meaning to pick one up to use especially for wreaths – and it’s my fav! Thanx for the inspiration and chance at t’riffic blog candy!

  255. Kim says:

    WOW!!! I just LOVE your Watermark Calendar!!! The colours are just gorgeous as is your stamping and colouring! This is so eye catching….I would love to have this! LOL Thank you for the chance to win some Papertrey product!! Your blog is beautiful, all your work is exquisite!!

Love the punched out leaves tucked behind the picture. And you colored the image so beautifully! And using the wheel and then adding the circles, that is something I wouldn’t think of! Thanks for so many great ideas.

  262. Georgia says:

    I love all your work! My favorite is the monogrammed gift set because I love boxes! You did such a great job on the box. The tassle was a nice touch!

  263. Diana Downey says:

    Wow – I love your work so much! My favorite has to be the Happy Fall Y’all…I especially love that nugget box. The paper that you put in the bottom of the box is so awesome.

  269. DawnR says:

    All of your work is amazing, but I must say that I LOVE the paper dolls set you made with the clothes and all the accessories….must have taken ages to get it all done. I have 2 daughters who love that kind of stuff, my MIL has found them paper doll books from the 40’s and they love them! Thank you for the awesome blog and for the blog candy, LOVE all the papertrey bags and such, they are so much fun to play with.

  274. Cindy F says:

  275. PatsyB says:

    I have been over this blog repeatedly and I have to say my fave is the lotion bottle!! I just love that! So elegant and yet useful at the same time! Would be fantastic gift!

(and I like the green and purple page that you thought was too green!!) Thanks for the giveaway – it’s very generous! God bless!

  278. Denise says:

    Your work is very pretty. ONE of my favorites is the Floral and Aviary Ensemble post with the hummingbird and I think bleeding heart flowers. Just beautiful!


  279. Lori A. says:

    Although I think all your creations are beautiful, I really like the May calendar page. It is very striking! Thank you!

  280. Amy Johnson says:

    Wow! What a wonderful blog (I’m subscribing!) and what a wonderful give away! You are so generous! My favorite creation of yours is the ‘Happy Fall ya’ll’ card. I just love everything about it, the colors, the dp, the martha stewart punch leaves, the stitching is great…love how you switched from straight line to zig zag…so scarecrowish! Just all the detail in this card is fantastic. And I love that you used an ‘older’ set. I wish more designers would go back and use some old sets once in awhile. I have this set and now I have an ‘inspiration’ to draw from. I can’t keep up buying all the new stamps all the time, so I like to see some fresh ideas using old sets once in awhile too. Thanks. Oh, and your calendar pages are great too. I’m hoping to give that a try also. You are such an amazing designer. Just love all your work!

  281. Such great blog candy!! YUM! I absolutely adore those paper dolls. Such detail and what a great gift to give. All of your designs are so professional and polished. They are all just lovely and detailed. I really enjoyed looking around.

  282. JackieK says:

    Cool Stuff! Thanks for the chance to win it!

    Your delicate vellum butterflies inspired me to buy those butterfly stamps and try to make some of my own.

  285. Wendy (songbirdwc) says:

    I just adore the calendar — I had already printed out the pages to inspire a calendar for me (or gifts) and I just keep looking at the pages with wonder. Your work is amazing! And the paper dolls? Oh my, they are an heirloom to treasure. What a blessing and an inspiration your work is — truly a touch of Grace from the Lord!! Thank you so much!

  286. Melissa says:

    WOW!! It’s hard to pick one, but if I had to, I love the fall ensemble you did with the scarecrow. Very cute!!

  287. Katy says:

    I am a sucker for anything monogrammed, so i’m going to have to say that my favorite thing you’ve posted, was the gift set for your friend Stacey. 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win!

  288. Carolyn says:

    As always your watercolors are stunning! I love the little scarecrow – the only one that I haven’t seen in person. The colors just scream fall.

  293. KellyMB says:

    I love the fall nugget tin! I love nugget tins and have given away quite a few of them, none as beautiful as yours though! I wouldn’t want to give it away!

  294. Candy says:

    Absolutely no way to choose. Everything you do makes my jaw drop. So what I’m going to do is just choose the latest — the Happy Fall Y’all items — since that’s one of my very favorite SU stamp sets and fall is my favorite time of year. Please keep the beautiful work coming — you’re such an inspiration.

  295. Linda w says:

    I am a card maker at heart so I guess I love the scarecrow card the most. Thanks for the chance to win.

    First of all thanks for the chance to win such a great prize! Secondly, all of your creations are beautiful. If I have to pick a favorite, I’ll have to say that I love your masculine “thank you” card-it is masculine but at the same time, it appeals to my attention to detail. Thanks again!

  303. Carol B says:

    Tough decision.
    But, I think it’s a tie between your Tulip Clutch Bag and the Scarecrow ensemble.
    Both are pretty awesome! Thanks for helping Sharon celebrate her anniversary!

  304. Trudi says:

    Congrats on your first blog giveaway and thanks for the chance at some blog candy 🙂 All of your work is beautiful and you put so much detail into it all. I think my favorite though is the paper dolls, how much fun are those!

  305. jackie says:

    love the happy fall yall ideas!!! have a great day

  306. Sheri says:

    Hi Jerri Kay,
    Your work is really beautiful. I’m particularly fond of your cards with the hummingbirds, as they remind me of visiting my grandparents home when I was a little girl.
    In a completely different style, I love the scarecrow ensamble with the punched “branches”. They add great texture to the items, especially the tag!
    Congrats on your new blog & 1st Blog candy give away.

  307. ConnieC says:

    I have to say you have some of the most beautifully colored stuff I have seen. I love your cards. I think my favorite thing I saw on your blog was The “Rejoice” card on your second post. I love the colors you used. And I also loved the calendar pages you have posted. I can’t wait to see that. I am bookmarking your blog, so I can keep up with your work. Thanks for sharing it.

  317. Amy says:

    My favorite of the items you have posted on your blog is the JustRite thank you card on Aug 11, 2008 — the first one with the diagonal stripe background. I like more earthy colors and simple designs.

  318. Leah says:

    First of all, welcome to the blog world! Your coloring is AMAZING! I am so excited to see more of your beautiful creations! It was a tough choice, but I really like the fall scarecrow card you made! I love the colors & texture with the leaves. TFS! 😀

  322. tera says:

    Welcome to blogland!!!

  323. Cheryl G says:

    My favorite is the lotion bottle gift set. It is so beautiful! It is the perfect colors for my guest bathroom. Thanks for the chance to win .

  324. Connie N says:

    Wow! It’s so hard to pick just one of your projects as my favorite. They’re all just stunning. I think I have to say your May calendar page, just because it’s so beautifully designed–the colors are so soft and warm and I just loved the butterfly. A close second would be the vellum butterflies you posted earlier in August =) Thanks for giving us the chance to win such great stuff!

  325. Heather says:

    Oh WoW! You are super talented! I love love love the Paper Doll Ensemble you put together. I wish my paperdolls looked like your growing up, but I also loved the watercolor calendar such amazing work.!

  326. Viv (VivLyn) says:

    I love your calendar pages! I loved them when they were in the Fan Club Gallery and still do! They are gorgeous…each and every month is special! Great blog candy and what a lot of comments! Great job and keep up the good work!

  327. LadyDoc says:

    It was easy to find one I loved!

    I have been a musician all my life and my birthday is in February- so the GORGEOUS February calendar just jumped out at me. WONDERFUL!!!

  328. Tamara W says:

    Easy! I am SO in love the JustRite monograms right now and I just LOVE the set of note cards you made for your friend with the Basic Grey papers. Very elegant and I can certainly see why she loved them. Thanks!!

  329. Kim S. says:

    The calendar pages are stunning! Your artwork is amazing!


  330. Laura McKinstry says:

    Love your calendars, really inspires me to try my own. Thanks for the chance to win. Take care.

  331. DeniseLynn says:

    Ok that is impossible!! To pick only one I mean. But I would chose the tag because I have a tag thing going on lately. I love making and receiving tags…not sure why either. *lol* Anyway thanks for the great chance to win such a tremendous prize package.

  332. Linda Crowder says:

    I love your designs, all of them so this is a hard choice. Since fall is my favorite time, and all the kiddos love Halloween, I’ll pick the Happy Fall Ya’ll because the scarecrow designs are so versatile that they will work for either one. I appreciate all you do and share.

  333. Cindyb says:

    Oh my goodness, pick one favorite……………your creations are all beautiful. Every time I looked at something it was my favorite until I went to the next post! Fantastic work! The calendars, the tags, the butterflies, the beautiful dolls, the lovely sets, I can’t just pick one.
    Congratulations on your blog and keep us thrilled with these wonderful creations!
    Thank you

  334. Char- D says:

    The answer for me is so easy. I love your bag toppers. I am all about Halloween. I love the little ghost. Now I am off to spread the word.
    Good luck with your blog. You are off to a good start it seems.

  335. Londra says:

    I love your fall set with the scarecrow! Great job. Thanks for the opportunity to win some candy!

  336. Janet Rohde says:

    I love the scarecrow items. I’m not a big fan of Halloween since the grandchildren are all grown. Fall themes seem to be more my style now. And I do have that set, just haven’t used it lately.

  337. Tammy says:

    really wonderful work!! Is the leaf punch the Martha one you mention?

  338. Isabel Z says:

    All of your creations are magnificent but my favorite are the paper dolls. When I was little girl in elementary school I had a friend who was a wonderful artist. She would make paper dolls for all of us as well as their clothes. I remember sitting with all my friends in the school yard coloring the clothes and dolls. What a wonderful memory your paper dolls brought back. I still love paper dolls and when my little girl is a bit older I plan on sharing them with her. Thank you for the opportunity to win such amazing prizes.

  339. Lisa Keeffe says:

    Definitely the lotion bottle gift set! So elegant and what a perfect gift. The card is beautiful too! Love it! Lisa K in TX

  340. Terri Moore says:

    I would say the paper dolls are my favorite. All your work is great though.

  346. leslierich says:

    Wow, Jerri! I just have to tell you how much I love your sample projects! You just whipped those up? You’re amazing! They’re all so over the top adorable! I really love the different colored moons on the bag topper. It’s just such an original idea. The card–oh, my gosh! Gee, is this my new favorite collection? I don’t know…your morning glory card set with the altered lotion bottle has always been one of my favorites. Can I pick one for each season? Okay…nevermind…I’ll pick the morning glory and lotion bottle set.

  347. Wow! It was hard to choose what I liked best. Everything is beautiful. Your Paper Doll Ensemble tugged on my heartstrings, however, taking me back in time to a place that was fun to revisit. Thanks for sharing!

  348. Donna Crum says:

    As much as I don;t want to admit fall is here, these samples certainly put me in the mood for it!

  349. morningglory says:

    It is so difficult to pick out a “favorite” but if I really must I would probably choose Madam Butterfly as there are so many lovely applications for this beauty. Of course, the Happy Fall Y’all set is perfect for the exact same reason. And then there is … Who can choose just one?

  350. Dee (OkieDee) says:

    I really did not have any trouble picking out my favorite…it is the Happy Fall y’all.
    I saw that a few days ago and loved the scarecrow..your coloring is fantastic.
    Your prizes are great…hopin’ to win one of them…thanks for the opportunity.

  351. Kathy B says:

    Tough decision, you offer many varied projects, but I think I will go with the lotion bottle ensemble. I was also really drawn to the butterfly place card. Then there is the Fall y’all. Okay, enough already. I liked most everything you have done! Thanks for the chance for the blog candy, looks like it will be the big box since the count was 350 when I started this reply!!! That says something about your candy, for sure!

  352. Lovina Freed says:

    All of your work is beautiful, so hard to choose, but I’ll go with fuchsia and hummingbird, but the vellum butterflies are right at the top also.

  353. Jill C. says:

    I absolutely love all your work and actually joined the SCS so I could find your ideas in the DD fan gallery! On your blog, I’m loving the fall set (who knew Happy Fall Y’all could be SO cute. and your calendar is just an absolute knockout! SO, my favorite is a happy toss up. Just keep the blog going at a really rapid rate so I can learn! Also, thanks for the opportunity to win the blog candy!

  354. Vicki says:

    I think my favorite is the Lotion bottle gift set. I love that it is so feminine and vintage-looking. What wonderful blog candy you are offering, thanks for the chance to win it.

  355. rainy says:

    Oh my gosh, Jerri!! Look at you go on this blog thing, girl!! I LOVE that scarecrow ensemble. It’s so full of color and texture. You are rockin’!

  357. Melanie PL says:

    Wow. Love your samples and blog. Thanks for a chance to enter for the blog candy!

  358. Linda B. says:

    What fantasic looking projects. They are all outstanding. The choices are difficult, but I just feel in love with the Easter butterfly card. It is just breathtaking. linda

  359. Debbie D says:

    I really like all of your projects and having to select one was a bit difficult. However, I love the vibrant colors used on the April Calendar page and so that is my favorite project. Thank you for sharing.

  360. peanutbee says:

    Wow, Jerri. As always, your projects are just over-the-top gorgeous! My favorites are the fall treat bag toppers with in this post and your hummingbird card from August 4th for the DTGD challenges. So pretty!

  361. Sheri Danielson says:

    WOW! I just discovered your blog and you are an amazing stamper. I just subscribed so I could see all of the wonderful things you make. Thanks for the opportunity to win these nice gifts!

  362. I can only pick one!?! I love them all. You are so talented! I guess if I had to pick, it would be the water colored calendar. Every month is a work of art in its own right.
    I also love the Christmas cards you did in July!! Wow!!
    Smiles, Jami

  363. My gosh – are you kidding me??? Wow. Thanks!

    I’m gonna go with the calendar!!!

  364. Betty says:

    You have so many beautiful cards – that it is very hard to pick one. One of the ones that I love is the one entitled “Old Friend”. I have a very good friend that needs some cheering up right now and that card would be perfect for her. My second choice would be the calendars. I would love to receive one of those, as I don’t think I could ever create any so beautiful. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us.

  365. Ann says:

    I hope I’m not disqualified for not listing my favorite, but I honestly can’t choose. I LOVE every single thing you watercolored. They are just absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

  366. Sherri Alspach says:

    Those are so great!!! I LOVE the colors you picked for the scarcrows!!! and the leaves are amazing!!! Your blog is great— how did I miss seeing it for so long??? Now I’m subscribed — Yipee!!!
    Sherri Alspach

  367. Charlene says:

    Certainly didn’t have to go far to choose my favorite design. These fall sets are absolutely adorable. I’m off to create right now! You are so very talented.

  368. Tammi says:

    OMG….You are so creative. Everytime I get your blog my jaw drops. The fall emsemble is so beautiful. I am starting school next week so my stamping time will be limited and my husband has put me on a “stamp purchasing diet” until I graduate. Thankfully school will only last three months, but hopefully you will pick me to win the blog candy so I can have some new stuff to stamp. Hmmm I wonder if this diet will also make my butt smaller? LOL

  369. LisaB says:

    Oh my word! What great samples…….I love the lined nugget tin, I have never thought to do that….it is like 2 gifts in one. Thanks so much for sharing!

  370. Robin says:

    It was hard to choose one, but I think I like the fall tag the best. Thanks for the wonderful samples!

  371. sandyh50 says:

    Wow, great blog! I love your April calendar, so beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win.

  373. Virginia Johnson says:

    WOW! What fabulous blog candy! I’d love to win this amazing package!!

    How on earth is anyone supposed to choose just ONE of your gorgeous samples??? I love them all! Your stamping and coloring is flat out amazing!! I especially like your calendars and the January one is stunning. I live in Minnesota, so those gorgeous flowers are NOT something you’d see here in the winter. WOW again!


  374. Claudia F. says:

    Amazing ! The coloring you do is just amazing. I love your work and your blog. My favorite is your Aug. 5 fuchsia and hummingbird, such a beautiful card.

  375. Linda says:

    I especially like the calendars you have been making. Your coloring technique is amazing. I make calendars for Christmas every year and I am going to try some of your designing techniques.Linda

  376. Jean says:

    wow, it is so hard to pick just one, but if I have to I would say your scarecrow card, it is so cute!!!

  377. Mary Ferris says:

    I LOVE the fall ensemble shown here. In fact, it made me rush into my stamp storage area to find my Happy Fall Ya’ll set – I fell in love with that scarecrow when it first came out and I’d kind of forgotten about it. Your watercoloring on all the pieces is spectacular, drawing all the elements (background paper, punched leaes, ribbon, etc.) together to make each piece look fantastic. Thanks for the inspiration – and the chance to win some blog candy!


  378. Heidi Yaek says:

    I love the Cinderelly’s Mice. They remind me of my daughters first time she saw the movie Cinderella. She so much wanted to get a mouse that she could dress up. These designs are the next best thing. She saw these and wanted to buy them. I had to explain to her that they were yours. So, coming from a four year old, your designs are definatly worth buying. Thanks for the beautiful designs. Keep up the good work.

  379. Joan E. says:

    This was a hard decision to make, but I would have to go with the paper dolls. When I first saw the paper dolls, I just stopped and stared. Such detail and care are shown in these cards. Just beautiful.

  380. Shellie H. says:

    I absolutely love the scarecrow set. The colors are wonderful! Fall is my favorite time of year. The scarecrow tag is beautiful. I really like the punched leaves. I will be looking for that punch to add to my collection. Thanks for the chance to win.

  381. Elizabeth Sova says:

    You are so generous with your blog candy. A favorite? Well, I would probably have to say the March calendar page is my favorite because of the colors. I love blue and green. It is very elegant. I love that you emboss with gold. It really adds a beautiful touch. Your talent with watercolor is amazing. I will be trying some of your techniques with deep vivid colors. Thanks so much for the beautiful inspiration and the chance at your generous blog candy. Take care and God bless you.

  382. Sandie Luck says:

    Your tulip clutch bag is quite unique! Sooo FUN!! The colors and textures you choose for your projects really bring them to life! Great looking Autumn ideas!!

  383. Debbie Naegele says:

    I love your scarecrow card. I love fall and the colors on the card are great!

  384. Kelly V. says:

    Your calender pages are my Favorites…..I love that they are individual and can be displayed on a small easel. They are so ornate and fabulous. I am so excited to discover your blog!!

  385. Virginia Anderson says:

    Jerri Kay, you have a superb talent of sharing beautiful designs and sharing from the heart. May God continue to comfort you in your losses and renew your hope as you minister to your family and others with your stamping items. Choosing just one “favorite” is not an easy task. At first, I thought the fall collection was going to be it! How could it not? Then the March calendar with the hummingbird definitely grabbed my attention as I scrolled through your samples. Think it was because of the colors, the cheerfulness of the design and the hummingbird, too. Then the Butterfly Napkin rings made me gasp! How delicate, lacy, colorful and useful! How could that be beat?! Next came the Tulip Clutch Bag – probably because of the colors again. Lovely! That was before I found the Paper Doll Ensemble! Mind boggling detail and untold hours of works for that future special granddaughter. Hope her parents appreciate all you did and will preserve it in a special place till she is old enough to treat it with respect. Thanks for sharing ALL your beautiful work and the Jeremiah 17:7 devotional as well. Blessings, Jerri Kay. Hope you are able to continue your blog and super examples for a long time. One favorite? March calendar with honorable mention to ALL!

  396. Stephanie Sheridan says:

    Your samples are so pretty and your Blog candy is alot of fun. Will be fun to fill those bags. Thanks for doing this for us.

    Oh my goodness. I have to say my favorite items are your paperdolls! They are just beautiful; so much detail and work. I admire your patience in doing a project like this.

    I think my favorite is the scarecrow tag. I’ve fallen in love with the fern punch, but haven’t found it locally yet. You have used it very well! Thanks for the chance to win such generous candy!

  409. Marsha says:

    This was my first visit to your blog. It is now in my Favorites so I can come every day. Oh, my goodness, how talented you are. I love all your samples. Thanks for sharing. It is hard to choose my favorite – love the lotion bottle. But my vote is for the scarecrow tag, The colors, leaf accents, ribbon – love it all.
    Keep blogging for us.

  414. Wenda says:

    Been oohhhing and aaaahhhing over the paper dolls with anyone ready to blog jump from an address packed with me. What conversations we share inspired by your blog display of shared gorgeous work. What a special, precious, lovely gift to share with coming generations. Anyone saying Antiques Roadshow?!!! Certainly the quality they look to see generations later. For now, lovely, love ’em, having fun sharing the look.

  415. Amy says:

    Really? I’m supposed to pick just one!?!?

    Okay, well…my favorite at this moment is the ensemble you created for the Splitcoast function–just stunning! But if I were to refresh the page, who knows! That scarecrow tag is so adorable, it might just steal my vote 🙂

    Thanks for sharing all the great inspiration and the enormously fun blog candy!

  416. Ruby says:

    Well, It looks like the big prize package! This is my first time to your blog and I’m glad I found you. You have such beautiful pieces. You may think picking one would be easy but not so for me. Every time I’d think I decided, I look at the next and realize I liked it better. I would have liked to say I finally decided on the paper dolls. The little girl in me won out but I kept looking and then I saw the vellum butterflies and those are so beautiful that I have to choose them. They are so delicate. I never would have thought to watercolor on vellum. I would love to see a tutorial on that technique!

  417. MARILYN says:

    My favorite is the February calendar because I love music so much. Your work amazes me. The detail is amazing and I love the gold accents. WOW. This is my first visit to your blog and it won’t be my last!

  418. Colleen says:

    As soon as a I saw your Cinderella-inspired Carriage and Mice as part of your Paper Doll Ensemble I knew it was my favorite of your blog entries! The carriage is absolutely adorable and it is something my preschool-aged daughter would think is soooo pretty. You do beautiful work. Thanks for the chance to win the blog candy.

  419. Joan Ervin says:

    Jerri…you are the bomb, girlfriend!!! Ya know I love everything you do but the paper dolls touched my heart!! Reminded me of when I was a little girl and mom would buy me paper dolls …not as fancy as yours but I loved them anyway!! Hugs!!

I love the dress with the vellum in it… very, very creative. Your work is the most inspiring and beautiful of all I get to see!

    You have an awesome blog!!! Every posting is gorgeous. If I really have to pick a favorite, it would be a toss-up between the paper dolls ensemble and the vintage purse ensemble. They are beautiful and the intriquite detailing is unbelieveable. How about another blog candy for one of those sets?!?!?

  425. Karen says:

    Wow everything you have done is great, but, I thin that my favourite is the fall samples that you did using the various projects – certainly makes me think of full. Thanks for giving us the chance to win all the diferent packaging.

    Hello Jerri Kay! I’ve noted your name in my various blogging travels in the comments, which jumps out at me because I’m a Kay too! And another similarity — I just started blogging too! {and we all said in a sing-song voice — It’s a small world after all!} Your blog is beautiful, I love it! My favorite design post is the Lotion/Card ensemble, which is also your blog banner/buttons – simply stunning! Your mom is gonna be tickled when she gets a lavendar themed set someday … I’m watching for it! I’ll visit you again, it’s a pleasure to meet you!

  444. Alyssa Byron says:

    I’m lovin those scarecrows, so beautiful like everything else. Sharing your wonderful creativity was the best thing for me–ever!

  445. Everything that you do is just fantastic — your colors just come alive! I have particularly liked all the calendar pages that you do and the post on Aug. 5 with the Me & Carrie Lou hummingbird and floral images. The colors are just beautiful!

  446. Kerry says:

    Everything you make is so pretty and intricate – it was hard to chose a favorite! The butterflies you made on August 1st are awesome, so I’m going to go with those. I think part of what makes them so appealing is that they’re so delicate looking, just like real butterflies. And the colors you used are beautiful!!

    Kerry Morgan

  447. Great work! My fave is the hummingbird calendar. I love the bright colors and the gold detail. TFS!

  448. Melissa says:

    What beautiful work! It was hard to narrow down to just one – I kept flip flopping because it looks like all your stuff is ‘stop you in your tracks gorgeous’. I loved your Tulip Clutch Bag, Lotion Bottle gift set & the calendar pages. All beautiful to say the least. Thanks for sharing your work. Inspirational but don’t think I could compare!
    Thanks for the chance to win your very generous blog candy. Congrats on your blog & keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing more ; )

  452. Elena says:

    Wow, your work is so intricate! My favorite is your “Madam Butterflies”…butterflies watercolored on vellum from your Aug 1st post. They look like stained glass! Gorgeous! Thanks for offering the blog candy!

  453. kit says:

    I just recently came upon your website, and boy am I glad I did. Your work is amazing. I will definitely be visiting often. The detail you put into your work is beautifully showcased here, but I’m sure in person it is magnificent. It is hard to top what would be my favorite, but I am so in the mood for fall and your scarecrow card screams fall, apple cider, and a cool weather. It is so colorful.

    Again, I can’t say enough about your work and all the intricate detail you do. I am so glad I came across your site, and will definitely be a steady vistor.
    Thanks for sharing your talent, it shows your love and passion.

    Wow I am just amazed at your use of color and how lovely your projects are. I could only hope to be this good one day! 🙂 Since fall is my favorite time of year I would have to say your “Happy Fall Y’all” card is my favorite.

  459. Jerri, I love all of your work!!!! But if I have to pick just one, I guess I would pick “Madam Butterfly” (watercolored butterflies). They are just so delicate looking and I have always loved butterflies……they are truly one of God’s most beautiful creations and you captured their beauty with your talent!

  460. Kathie Tice (aka chattiekathie) says:

    It’s hard to choose just one! I love your Poinsettia card, but my favorite has to be your Scarecrow Ensemble – and I can’t pick just one from it, because I love it all! I love autumn and all things fall! I was married in September and my birthday is tomorrow. You do a wonderful job coloring and thank you for the chance to win some goodies!

  461. I love so many of your creations, but I have to say the scarecrow ensemble is definitely my favorite as well.

  462. Sharon Miller says:

    I tend to tune in to the details of a card or project-so picking one from your blog was overwhelming! I’d have to say though, the Christmas poinsettia card was fabulous!

  463. I love the little gift bags they are so simply cute. Second choice would have to be the tag. Love your work.

    well, your work is lovely! I think my favorite thing in all is the calendar idea including the discussion of your display. I have seen this floating around, but your design combined with the wonderful calendars you’ve been showing is a great gift idea! Thanks for the giveaway! I LOVE containers (unusual, but something afflicting many papercrafters these days, I think)!
