Message received from Harsha F.(Singapore):
your site is truly informative and i thank you for that. I'm Harsha, from Singapore. Your name sounds like you're from Asian, are you? if you dont mind me asking..
If you're in Singapore, i would like to know if you do host a card making workshop?
Message received from Sandy M.(U.S.A.):
Thank you so much for the spirograph cards. Please put some more on your website. I just fell in love with the spirograph. Mine is from KLUTZ. They have a website klutz.com My set came with 4 wheels, a frame and a book. A little tricky to use at first but then once you get going great!!! I use mine with my rubber stamps. Make the spirograph design and stamp in the middle of the circle. Or stamp first and then put on top the spirograph design. Mount one of the stamps you use on the base on top. Almost looks like 3-D.
Thank you for all your feedbacks. I have been fixing some broken links and also working on more templates to upload to the site.
Actually today I have uploaded four more templates. I hope they are useful to your cardmaking needs.

I've been a crafter for many of my 72 years. Started making cards when my husband suffered from heart failure a couple of years ago. Now - I'm HOOKED - and want to learn as much as possible. Thank you for the opportunity to expand my card-making abilities.

Hi Flora, I'm actually in Canada but for some reason that choice doesn't appear on your dropdown list so I picked the closest one! Thanks for all the hard work on your site, the templates are great!

I'm excited to find this~
Message received from Dee A.(U.S.A.):
I'm looking forward to hearing more from you and your site.
Message received from Elise K.(U.S.A.):
Neat ideas, Flora.
Message received from Ruth L.(U.S.A.):
THANKS MUCH--looking forward to it. I have been stamping for almost as long--but nowhere near the talent you have. Nevertheless, I love it and decided to put my card output to use. I contacted my church and have been sending birthday cards to senior members 75 and older (over 200) and Thinking of you to families who have experienced a death on the first anniversary.
Have a friend in a neighboring parish who took over my job when I changed locations. She has added cards to new members and families when baby is baptized. She has help. I'm just getting a group started.
Pass this tip on.
I have found that the seniors are just thrilled to be remembered. (I have rec'd thank you cards from them!) No one writes letters anymore and most mail is either bills or junk mail. I also make a special effort to jazz up the envelope so they can see right away that this is something special just for them. Sometimes I can even get "Happy Birthday" stamps from the post office--but not always."

your site is great!
Message received from Beth P.(USA):
Hi Flora....your website's looking great!! Thanks for making it available for so many to view your beautiful work and for all your hints & tips! =)
Having so much fun making Spirograph Cards . I think everyone should try it. It is not just fun but also a good de-stressing tool.
I have been joyfully busy making Christmas cards; anticipating the smiles on the recipients' faces when they receive them. Have you started your Christmas cards yet? I will be uploading them to the site with instructions as soon as I'm done. Should be soon so do come back and check. Look under Christmas Cards. I will build a page dedicated to this festive season. If you have any idea for Christmas cards, do email me.

Message received from Patricia A.(USA):
I have been stamping and making cards for 4 years now. Can't wait to see what new ideas you might have. I have also just started to sell my cards
-- Love the site, very informative."
Just thought I share with you a photo of my niece against a big panel of quilts.
Since I last posted, I have been browsing through my books and magazines on cardmaking,
Rubber Stamping Supplies and papercrafts. Also found some books on designs and layouts. Didn't even know that I have those.:~D
Getting lots of ideas for some new cards.
Well, not today though.
My nieces and nephew are coming over today. It's being Sunday. And I just love to play with them.
Maybe I will guide them to make some children cards. Will go look for some cute rubber stamps and washable ink pads.
Kids love to stamp on almost everything especially the whitewashed walls.
