Hallo again *lol
I´stopped by Ardyth @ JustJingle today and left my commend there.... byby hellerlittle

canadian_liner said...

You're right about it being difficult to choose just one Pinterest board... Firstly, let me compliment you on the set-up of the boards. Great idea to have one per stamp set. Makes it über-easy to find inspiration for the stamp sets you already own. Secondly, favorite boards: The Brickworks is a very unusual, graphic set--love the build-your-own concept, but I think I would choose Text Talk as I have kids of just the right age, who would LOVE cards using those images.

Sue McRae said...

My fave is the Amber Waves board, I just love the sheaf of wheat images.

Debbie Mallette said...

Congrats to the Design Team. My favourite is the Casual Elegance. It's beautiful.

Cheryl said...

I love tutorials, so your tutorial board is my FAV!

Barbara said...

Congrats to the new team members ! Love them:) following you on Pintrest , fav board is Love Notes...love that one!

Pamela Haskin said...

Really? Choose just one? My fav is Big Thanks, but now I'm following them ALL!

Linda H said...

Whew! That was tough to pick one board since I like all of them. I would choose Shenanigans board if you twist my thumb. I love the way you organize your board too. Thanks!

Dorothy C. said...

So far, great start to the list. Looking forward to the next group.My favorite board is WTF! The DT did such a great job when it was introduced.
