  1. Love this kit, love love love your cards – my favourite is definitely the one with the reindeer die
    I did have a laugh out loud at Ginger sat on your card !!!

  2. You always make lemonade out of the various kits! No exception here. I love the shaker card reindeer, just so cute. I also like the deer in the forest. Reminds me of my years living in the country and seeing this scene out my kitchen window all winter. What’s not to love? Sure to please the recipient. Thank you for all the inspiration.

  3. Fabulous cards and ideas as usual, Vicky!
    I hardly use any patterned papers these days, which is probably why I love your third card so much, because it shows how you can create a quick and CAS card using patterned papers creatively.
    Thanks for the inspiration and for a chance to win!

  8. Υπέροχες όλες οι κάρτες σου, Βίκυ μου. Δύσκολο να ξεχωρίσω ποια μου αρέσει περισσότερο. Ίσως η τελευταία με το ελαφάκι στο δάσος, όμως είναι όλες πανέμορφες. Ευχαριστούμε για την ευκαιρία να κερδίσουμε. Πολλά φιλιά, Μία (Craftartista)

  9. I love all of your cards but my favorite was the bear because it clean and simple. I learn new techniques every time I watch your videos, so thank you for being such a great teacher.

  10. All four are beautiful cards! My favorite is the forest scene. I really like how you colored the trees & cut everything out. The polar bear card is super cute too. Your water coloring skills are amazing.thanks for the inspiration!

  11. All of your cards were beautiful but I loved the woods card with the deer. It’s always relaxing and inspiring to watch your videos. Watching you make so many beautiful cards has inspired me to try card making for myself!

  24. Oh, these cards! All of them are beautiful, but I prefer the gold shaker one. Thanks so much, Vicky, for sharing your creativity.

  25. Has to be the deer card but that sweet bear is a close second! Love your design ideas Vicki. The pompom haircut was a brilliant idea. I was thinking they would be to thick to post.
    Thank you for the Giveaway!

  26. Has to be the deer card but that sweet bear is a close second! Love your design ideas Vicki. The pompom haircut was a brilliant idea. I was thinking they would be to thick to post.

  27. I love all these cards. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but that reindeer shaker is the cutest thing ever. I have four grandchildren and each of them would love to get this one!

  28. The winter scene card has to be my favorite. There is just something about birch trees that I love.
    Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us. I love your cards and art journals so much.

  29. The polar bear is so cute and my favorite! All of them are inspirational! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us!

  30. Oh gosh! They are all so pretty but, I’d have to go with the deer card. I love how you colored the trees and the dimension on the whole scene is so beautiful!

  31. These are all so cute!!! I love card 1 and 2 – love that you used only the critter and popped him on card 1 and I just love shakers, so can’t leave the shaker out, especially with the red nose 🙂

  32. Oh, deer! Yep, I already made my choice of the deer in the woods as my favorite on your YouTube page, but I must say again how much I love them all! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!

  33. They’re all adorable, but the birch trees with the deer is my fave. You’re sooo talented and I love listening to you, Vicky!

  34. My favorite is #4! So adorable! I’m leaving this comment on my birthday so maybe I’ll get lucky! I can always hope! Thank you, Vicky!

  35. You create the prettiest cards and these are all charming! My favorite would have to be the last card with the subtle Hello and sweet deer, so much detail and love went into it. Thank you for the opportunity to win this card kit! Take care, June

  36. I love the deer die but the deer with the trees card was the best.
    I can almost hear the snowfall. So cute. I just love your video and your ideas.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  37. All of the cards are lovely and that makes it difficult to choose just one favorite! That Winter Hello card is awfully cute, but so is the little Rudolph. Patterned paper is always a good idea, too. But, I will say the Hello card is my favorite today. Thank you for your videos, and a special thanks for allowing Ginger to visit sometimes 🙂

  38. Love your cards and love your video’s too! I love the polar bear card but also love the winter scene card, those are my favorite. What a great kit!

  39. Oh why do you ask us to pick a favorite? It’s so hard to decide. If I have to pick one, I will go with 4. It’s just so sweet, but it was really hard to choose. Thanks so much for sharing. ???

  40. The 4th card with the deer and trees is my favorite as well. It reminds me of an art journal(?) page you did last year(?) where you made birch trees using paper, a credit-type card and some paint. Love the outdoor winter scenes. BUT, of course, Ginger was the real star of the video!!!! Thank you, Vicky. P.S. The winter water colored images look like fun to practice/play with too!!

  41. I will have to say the polar bear card. Mainly because my son has always had a love for polar bears and it reminds me of him. All are gorgeous. though.

  42. My favorite would be the deer and birch trees. Your shading is always perfect and this card is amazing. Thank you for sharing your ideas with us and inspiring us to create. have a great day and thank you for the chance to win this kit.

  43. Vicky, I simply love the deer card with the trees, must be the country in me!! Thank you for the video inspiration!

  44. All are very pretty. The deer in the woods is my favourite!
    I have missed seeing you with the SSS card kit. It was wonderful to see your video!

  45. If I had opened that card kit box myself, I would never have thought of watercoloring and then cutting out the bear. That one is my favorite.

  46. Hi Vicky – Your cards are all lovely, however, the card with the rudolf “tickles” me. So that’s the card
    I like.

  47. Oh my gosh, all of the cards are beautiful! I think my favorite is the sweet deer in the woods card. Fabulous inspiration using the kit.

  48. Great cards, I love the expression on the reindeer. He makes me laugh. Can’t pick a favorite. Your work is always perfect.

  49. All of your cards are wonderful and really like your second: the reindeer shaker card. Thank you for explaining how you make them and the tips. Your kitty is adorable. Can I get him instead of the kit?

  50. Absolutely love this stamp set. My favorite card you created was the deer in the woods. Thanks for the inspiration.

  51. Awesome cards Vicky. This kit looks stunning and versatile. I’m so glad I saw you use the watercolours that’s included, I was curious how that painted.
    Choosing a favorite is very difficult, but in the end the beautiful scene card with the trees and the deer wins and beats the cute polar bear card.
    Thank you so much for showing the kit and the beautiful cards you made wih it.
    Have a great weekend, I saw on Instagram that you still have lovely weather and that you are a way this weekend. Enjoy!

  52. I love watching you create cards on your YouTube channel. I love the variety of card styles. My favorite is the winter woods deer card.
