8 (#15) Paperpicnic (Jayne)
Stephanie: "Gorgeous colours and fun graphic patterns caught my eye."

9 (#63) Kara

  Stephanie: "Beautiful colour combo. Really like the unique design and the jean pocket is a great touch for a boy/masculine card. I would wear that striped pattern any day.

10 (# 180) Thingie
Stephanie: "Pretty mix of patterns. Pop out birds and lightly stamped ones create great depth! I would also love to wear this pattern or have it on my stationary."
