  2. Jennifer…what fun, adorable cards!! Sure will bring bright happiness to the recipients!! What a giving heart you have!! You are BLESSING!!

  3. Great idea and so fun and cheery! Thanks for the tips. Just mailed a bunch of cards some of which were “mass produced”. Some of the cards were to local leaders who are doing a really good job making tough decisions to keep our community safe and informed. I just adore the new camera stamp/die set from Concord & 9th! Looks like so much fun and I’m seriously considering it. Am waiting for the blue bird & birdhouse die to arrive from WPlus9 and looking forward to your video on it. Can’t wait to play with it! Thanks so much for the video, Jennifer

  4. Hi Jennifer. I love your cards. So bright and cheerful! I love concord and 9th’s turnabout stamps—so much fun! I so enjoy your videos.

  5. Great cards, as usual. Very cheery.

    Tell me, Jennifer, why do you think that Scotch or someone hasn’t come up with 5 1/4 x 4 inch adhesive backed sheets. They would save a lot of time.

    Good Friday. The day The Work was done. TY, Lord.

  6. I love these Z fold cards. The last one looks so much like a regular card you had me fooled. I also love how you placed the cloud on the front exactly over the cloud inside the card it’s very clever.

  7. Hi Jennifer!
    I’d like to delve into using spritzes but I am COMPLETELY ovrerwhelmed. There are so many on the market and I’m not sure hat distinguishes one from the other. Would you consider doing a video about the different spritzes/sprays, their pros and cons, best uses for, what criteria should I use for making judgments regarding purchases, etc.? Thank you so much!

  8. Hi Jennifer, Hello from Mumbai India! I have loved watching your videos for years! I am a doctor myself and it cheers me up to see all the great things you are doing for healthcare workers and first responders. You really are using and sharing your superpower and spreading handmade kindness. Its been a pretty bad day today but your video put a smile on my face. Thanks again and God Bless!

  9. These are so bright and cheery! Thanks for sharing ideas with us on how to use these new products. I received mine yesterday and am ready to play!

  10. Miss Jennifer…you are a true artist. I have been making cards for almost 20 years and I watch you all the time. I truly Love what you do. And you make me smile. Thanks.

  11. I love these two cards you used. I do have a question for you, though.

    I was wondering what kind of card stocks are appropriate for stamping the rainbow on, because the only cardstock you listed was Not your mamas cardstock from Brutus Monroe in white. So I dont have that. I have some other white card stocks. I know there are certain papers to use for different mediums So what is ok to use dye inks directly on the base card. I thank you very much. I hope I hear from you soon.
