Congrats on 10,000 hits! Would love to know how your marketing your blog. I love your blog just as it is but if you insist on something that I would like to see on your blog then I would say step by step tutorials with step by step pics or a youtube video.

My favorite entry of yours so far is where you turned the tab punch into a cupcake. I sure do enjoy a different idea to use punches. I also like the variety of cards. Especially the stampin up.

I have only recently come across you blog from the designs you do on the Saturday sketch DT. I really like your style of stamping, the colours are very appealing, the photography is good and as I have only very recently discovered Stamping Up products (I'm in the UK) I like that you do a full list of what items you have used - many bloggers do not do this. I would love a step by step on your colouring techniques, your images are blended so well I can only aspire to such greatness !

Well done on getting so many hits to your blog, it is a true testament to your creativity.

Katie said...

You have fabulous color combos that I would never think of, and so have so many different layouts with one basic design. You are very talented! Thanks for sharing you creativity!

Sara Peatross said...

I love all the cards you have created. I love that you make cards that don't require a lot of coloring as I am still pefecting my coloring techniques!

Sun Stamper said...

What do I love about your blog... hmm. You've given me great ideas as a demonstrator, you've shown me beautiful cards, you've always been willing to share what you know with others. You've even encouraged me to start my own blog. You and your blog are great!!

Belinda said...

I love how you use white for the main background color- giving them the crisp look with your dazzle effects of embelishment and color!
Congrats on 10,000 hits , that to me says amazing talent!
I would love to see you do something out of the norm for you- something bold! I love surprizes!

Pegg S said...

Congrats on 10K! I really visiting your blog - you create beautiful work that is nicely shot. I think it's a great blog! I especially love that you show your stamped envelopes with your card. I love seeing that because I love to learn how to make my cards a little extral special. Thanks!

Bella Rose Creations said...

I love your unique, fresh style...but that doggie hydrant eye caught my eye and the rest has kept me here! TFS!

j said...

Steph said...

Congratulations for reaching such a special blog milestone! I lurk on your blog because i love how you give the 'recipe' for each card...so i can take inspiration to use some of the stamps i already have, or can be enabled to go and buy a specific SU set LOL...love your blog and thanks for the chance to win, Stephanie :)

Dawnie said...

Hmmm, tough questions! I can really get blog-happy and overload myself so really try to limit my skimming to blogs I truly enjoy, and yours is one. I think my favorite thing is your color selections. I'm not creative enough w/mixing colors so I appreciate the inspiration your blog provides. As for what I'd like to see in the future??? Stumped here! Personality, spontaneity - you seem to have those already. I guess continue to put your unique spin on your layouts. It's the variety that I'm drawn to - seeing the same layout done differently is really alot of fun! And one of these days I'm going to TRY some of these challenges because I am curious what I'll come up with, you know? For now it's just lots of fun to see what all you guys do (and then copy it, haha!). :)

Ashley said...

Holy moly! That's some awesome blog candy!

I really enjoy looking at the pictures of your cards! I really love the nice clean style of photography you use and I appreciate that you use natural light.

GabrielaD said...

Wow, great blog candy!!!! Congrats on the 10,000.

As for what I would like... I like all types of challenges.

Thanks for the opportunity to win!!

Congratulations to so many visitors! Your blog and your works are class. I´m a Newbie, and I have so far only 3 sets and a background and I need still inspiration. Only see the stamp is not sufficient for me. I wish myself, which you indicate the work under labels. Sorted according to the title of the sets. However it then intended expensive for me. Shopping can I find it easier. Only where is my gold donkey? Sorry for my English - I hope you understand me.

Vicki said...

I am always looking for ideas for cards, as I'm creatively challenged :). Your cards are great! Thanks so much for the chance to win some awesome blog candy.

Lyn said...

Kim, I love the cards you make. I am a beginner - I look at your cards and hope that I can do what you do one day.=) Really inspiring!
And everything in this blog is so neat! The pictures here are also wonderful. =D
Btw, I am an international poster - I hope I am eligible! But it's nice to delurk =)

Andrea said...

10,000 hits is because your blog is so inspiring!!! I like coming and looking at your adorable cards you make, and it helps get my creative juices flowing.

Congratulations on being so "popular" ha ha ha. Keep up the great posts.

Heidi said...

I love to check in with your blog each day and get new ideas. I love Stampin'Up so it is great that you use a lot of Stampin' Up products. I can't wait to see what you do with the new catalog. Thank you so much for sharing and for the awesome blog candy.

Congrats to 10.000 hits!! I like your Cards, because they are not so "overcharged" and the colors always harmonize. I think you should post the Cards under labels, so it would be clearly arranged. That's my opinion
You give a fantastic blog-candy away, and I hope I have a little bit luck *fingercrossed*
hugs, Nicole
