Sue Ann said...

I am really starting to rethink my original thought that I would not want "Love lives here" You made this so rustic and not vintage ..... I am not too good at vintage.. I totally love the feel of this card and the blue banner at with the sentiment ....... hmmmmm perfect. And the twill and the twine YMMY..... lace on the frame of the house perfect .... true perfection!!!

Keva said...

Lindsay said...

I have many favorite authors but I do love a good novel by Kathy Reichs! Thanks for all the chances to win!

Sue Ann said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY SWEET DANA!!!!

I love all veggies one of my favorite is Zucchini ... I shred it on a box grater but stop at the core since that has a bit more bitterness. Put some salt over it to pull out the moisture and wring it in tea towel. I cook it in a touch of EVOO until it is all seared up and golden brown. Toss it with some seeded plum tomatoes, garlic, EVOO, parm cheese, homemade bread crumbs and a bit of Balsamic vinegar ....... HEAVEN ON EARTH. Did you even want to know that much :) I LOVE FOOD what can I say I get all excited!!!

Sue Ann said...

Oh I have not sat down to read for myself in so long but I did work in the lastest Nelson Demille last year sometime. WE love to read to the kids so that seems to be what I am reading all the time. Julie Andrews has a really nice book out to read, short story and poems, the kids love that. I also like reading Greek Mythology to them. There is a book out for the young ..... super fun to read. Curt also reads a German book full of stories that his parents read to him, his dad would act out the characters ..... very funny when he imitates his father but look at the impression that it left on him 40 years later!!!

Erin said...

Happy Blog-a-versary! Thanks for the chance to win!! I follow your blog on google reader (does that count?!?). I love your style and thanks for your continued inspiration!

Gayatri said...

Happy Anniversay, Dana! You card is awesome. Love the little house on the doily. The colors are gorgeous.

Now coming to my fav vegetable! Ummm!!! Since I am a vegetarian, I eat all vegetables. Love all of them. But tomato esp the cherry tomato is my fav I should say! They are great for salads or just to pop into my mouth while I am in a hurry. I can hardly make a sidedish/curry without tomatoes.So there you go!!! Love the tomatoes :)
My fav author is Wilber Smith. Love all his books :)
May you have many more blog anniversaries in future, Dana!

Sara Mac said...

good_day1214 said...

I don't know how to 'follow' you, but I already do have your site in my Fav Folder the I check regularly. You always blow me away with your cards, this one not an exception. Happy Blogoversary and I look forward to more creations into your new year!

good_day1214 said...

That's a hard question considering I've been a hardcore carnivore for so long. I think it was only within the past 10 years that I've incorporated some "green" stuff into my diet. I eat brocolli and carrots, tried asparagus, but really my fave are mushrooms.

good_day1214 said...

Again, another hard question! I have several authors that I religiously follow. One that comes to mind is the Pendergast series from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

Melissa said...

Christina said...

Back to tell you that my favorite veggie is broccoli, with spinach being a close second. We go through lots of both in my house!

Christina said...

Barbara Axmacher said...

Favorite vegetable? Who doesn't love brussel sprouts? If I could only have one vegetable, that's the winner!

IamDerby said...

Hi Dana! I love this card, so pretty!
Those buttons are perfect! I like carrots, alot but also green beans... yum!

Rhonda said...

I'm already a happy follower!!!! Looks like the weather is getting bad in your area.

Cheryl said...

I have been following through my google reader but now am an "official" follower. I love your blog and projects!

Cheryl said...

I love veggie! I have to go with raw sugar snap peas for my favs.

Cheryl said...

I don't have a favorite author. I read a lot but bounce around authors and genres.

Laura Isham said...

Happy blog-iversary, Dana! Love, love your blog and your projects. The card you are sharing with us today is GORGEOUS! You put a lot of time into it. Love all of the layers.

Laura Isham said...

Fun questions! My favorite vegetable is spinach! Raw or cooked, it is delicious!

Laura Isham said...

I have lots of favorite authors, but the one that makes me giddy when a new she publishes a new book is Jodi Picoult.

Becky said...

Happy blogoversary, Dana! Your card is just lovely... I may have to rethink getting that set someday.

I became a follower!

Becky said...

Hmm, I do love many different vegetables, but I think my favorite may be green beans (from the garden, not canned or frozen - ew!)!

Jen Carter said...

First off, I have to gush about your card! Love it!! It is so pretty! I love how you layered everything and then tied it all together with the strip of buttons! So cute!! I am already a follower of your amazing blog as I'm sure you know! :)

Becky said...

My favorite author is Mercedes Lackey; I haven't read a book yet of hers that I haven't liked (and I've read almost all of them)!

Jen Carter said...

My favorite veggie...peas (but they have to be the frozen kind, I HATE peas from a can!!) I also love corn on the cob!

Jen Carter said...

My favorite author at the moment is Karen Kingsbury! Some others I really like are Beverly Lewis, Lori Wick, John Grisham & Nicholas Sparks.

Terri said...

Beautiful card! I always read your blog but just became a follower too. How generous of you to giveaway such a great prize! Thanks for the chance to win.

Terri said...

It is hard for me to pick a favorite vegetable because I love them all. The one I don't like is Brussel sprouts though.

Terri said...

My favorite author is Judy Blume. I have read all her books more than once and even got to meet her in person too!

Kara said...

first of all i want to say happy anniversary and i love your card...i am already a google reader follower and have been for quite some time!!

Kara said...

favorite vegetable has to be parsnip.....im obsessed with this mashed parsnips my husband makes....YUM!

Kara said...

what's next?...ahhh favorite author.....i'd have to say tom robbins!

Stephanie said...

Dana.......Your card is just gorgeous!!! Love all those little details in your card......especially the MFT Decorative Doily die......Just gorgeous!

BTW......I'm already a follower of your wonderful blog and love getting your emails in the morning!

And, TY for being so generous in your giveaway!

Stephanie said...

My favorite vegetable??? Seriously??? Caramelized Brussels Sprouts......You asked....I'm being honest....lol

Stephanie said...

My favorite author.....I have 2......Nicholas Sparks and Jodi Picoult!

Belinda said...

So sweet! Love this pretty with that touch of lace for the roof! :) Very nice! I already follow your blog. :)

Belinda said...

Ok, this is fun. My favorite veggie is spinach. Love it. Always have, even when I was little -- then again, I loved all green things when I was little except bitter melon.... blech. You try eating that when you're 5. Haha!

Belinda said...

Ok, my favorite author -- hmm, I have loved what Laura Hillenbrand has written. I think she does some thorough research as well which is nice. I haven't seen the movie version of Seabiscut though. But Laur has topped the list recently. Ask me in a year and I'm sure my answer will change! Haha!

Lisa F. said...

Love the card!!
I am with Stephanie, my favorite authors are Nicholas Sparks and Jodi Piccoult. I cry at the end of every one of their books, every.single.one. Love them!

Lisa F. said...

Annnnnddddd my favorite veggie is a hard one, I love alot of them. I never used to eat them as a kid, but since getting married, dh has introduced me to a whole new world of veggies! If I had to pick one, I would say it woud be zucchini as it so versatile for bread, casseroles, and even lasagna *yum*

Karen B. said...

Hey miss Dana, I'm a follower. Yep, you know it. I think I found you from Ted's blog awhile back and I'm so happy to be part of the PCD design team with you. You bring so much to them!

Karen B. said...

I like asparagus, is that normal?
PS-it has too be steamed though...

Karen B. said...

Ok, I'm going to be honest here. I think my most favorite recent author truly is JK Rowlings, I mean, I stayed up till I finished each and every book in one sitting.

christy compton hall said...

Congratulations, Dana!!! I looove that card. Love Lives Here is my most coveted stamp set lately.

I'll just leave one post, but what fun questions! Y'know, I really, really do love corn, but it hardly counts as a vegetable, so I'll have to go with a tie between carrots & parsnips. Classics. My new favorites, though, are belgian endives and fennel.

It's hard to pick a favorite author, too. If I could only read works by ONE person, maybe it would be Neil Gaiman, because then I'd have graphic novels, novels, and short stories to choose from. But I'm more drawn to female authors and have a tie between Margaret Atwood/Dorothy Allison/Donna Tartt. They rock!

Kim O'Connell said...

Grilled asparagus..........despite funky pee that later follows. :)

B Lew said...

I've been admiring your cards and photo skills for a while (following you via Google Reader). Happy Anniversary!

B Lew said...

I love veggies, so it's hard to pick. I'd have to say braised green beans. Thanks for the chance to win.

B Lew said...

My favorite author for the moment is Suzanne Collins (finished reading the Hunger Games series in less than a week, then read all 3 books again; so sorry the series is over).

judy said...

Congratulations on your blog anniversary and thanks for the
inspiration that you provide. One
of my favorite authors (and it is
very hard to choose) is Barbara
Kingsolver.

jen said...

Love the card!! I've been a follower for quite awhile- congrats on 4 years!

jen said...

hmm- I must be hungry- brussel sprouts, asparagus & broccoli all sound YUMMY right now!

jen said...

Current fave children's author: Jon J Muth (zen shorts). Fave grown up- james patterson I suppose! :) (although I do love Jane Austen!)

alexandra s.m. said...

Happy Bloganniversary!
Your card is beautiful!!

abril said...

I'm a follower :) Love your works! By the way once my husband has noticed your cards in my reading list and was really impressed by you works :) And I must say that he rarely pays attention to the cards i'm looking through :)

abril said...

My favourite vegetable is cabbage (different kinds of it))
By the way Женя has made a little misake, I think she meant "marrow squash" because in Russian "marrow squash" and "estaminet" are written in one way but have completely different meaning :)

abril said...

My fav author is John Fowles.

Ujjwal said...

Your card is absolutely gorgeous..so shabby chic!!

I am glad I found you through Practicing Creativity and I am a follower now!!

Ujjwal said...

My favorite veggie is carrots and I love olives as well :)

Ujjwal said...

My fav author is Ayn Rand!! I loved Fountain Head!!

Mary said...

What a lovely card!!
I have been a follower since the beginning!

My fave veggie to eat: tough choice? Can I say I love salads with everything-but-the-kitchen-sink? If not, then I'm going with carrots. Or broccoli. Or lima beans...or something...

And my fave author is tough too, but Dr. Suess and Shel Silverstein are near the top of the list!

Leigh Ann Baird said...

Dana, this card is brilliant! I love everything about it!

My favorite veggie is the tomato--I don't care if it's technically a fruit or not, it's in the veggie category for me.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Leigh Ann Baird said...

My favorite author is....wow, this is tough, umm, right now, I would go with Charlaine Harris. I've read all her books except maybe 1 stand alone title and I'll get to it eventually. Not only does she write the awesome Sookie Stackhouse books, she has 3 other book series (mysteries) that are wonderful too.

Artful Hands said...

I am a follower or your fabulous blog. And Im an upstater too, Rochester NY.

Artful Hands said...

My current FAV veggie is eggplant!

Artful Hands said...

I love to laugh so Im going with Janet Evanivich and the Stephanie Plum series.

Laurie said...

OK first off...HOLY COW! This is stunning! I love every detail you put in here! The bow is gorgeous in twill! Just beautiful!

Favorite veggie...love them all but hands down Edemame...in the shell! LOVE! ;)

Laurie said...

My favorite veggie... anything with blue cheese on the top? How about red bell pepper?

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

Favorite author... humm... recently read Ken Follett's Pillars of the Earth, great novel.

Dana said...

This card is STUNNING, Dana! That style is so difficult for me to achieve for some reason. And a giveaway? I would've been happy with just that card but a GC is a BONUS!

I am already a follower of this blog. ;)

Dana said...

Fav veggie? Great way to squeeze in healthy thoughts, you veggo, you! ;)
Well, since corn on the cob is a grain and tomatoes are more like fruit, I think my fav veggie is peas right off the vine. Yum!

Dana said...

This is prob boring and cliche but one of my fav authors is Jane Austen. *sigh* The absolute original in romantic tales...

Linda said...

Love the card and all the different elements used to add dimension. I have subscribed to your blog for quite a while now and look forward to the daily posts.

Linda said...

Hmmmmm, my favorite vege? I love so many but I must say that I use cucumbers almost daily....in salads, on my sandwich, sliced as a snack...congratulations on your blog anniversary and thanks for a chance to win.

Linda said...

....and one of my favorite authors is Jodi Picoult and she is releasing a new one very soon. All of her novels are very emotional and thought provoking.

Lilian said...

happy anniversary!! love your blog. thank you so much for sharing your talent with us.

i love vegetables, so it's hard to pick just one... but one of my favorites are green beans! :)

Lilian said...

~Tammy~ said...

Let's see favorite authors...Lately Catherine Coulter, but classic Jane Austin...

InspiredByInk said...

Tejal said...

I found your blog through Yvonne's blog..and hate for not having seen your work sooner! I love the post on stamping on PP and love this card..if nothing I'd love to get one card from you!!
I've started following you right away!
Tejal

Tejal said...

My favorite veggie is broccoli..even though its damn expensive over here, any chance I can get it..I just love buying it.

Tejal said...

Favorite author? I read a lot, mostly fiction..right now I'm loving the Twilight series. And as kid I used to be in love with Enid Blyton..those books were the ones to give wings to my imagination.

Gailanne said...

I am delighted to say that I follow your blog, and enjoy it very much!

Gailanne said...

Fav veggie? I adore yams...roasted, french-fried, mashed or just sliced. Yams are the perfect veggie!

Gailanne said...

Elizabeth George is my favourite author. Her main protagonist, Inspector Lynley, is a British lord who is also very high up in Scotland Yard. His professional and private lives intertwine wonderfully in the intriguing plot. I recommend this series of books whole-heartedly.

Sara Mac said...

I'm back to tell you what my favorite veggie is. I love edamame. It's perfect lightly steamed and sprinkled with a touch of sea salt.

red balloon said...

I totally dig your PCD card--very cool effect! The white ribbon adds a lot to the card, too. My favorite veggies are baby spinach (in summer) and beets (in winter).

Laura M said...

Happy anniversary! Your card is wonderful. My favorite vege is corn on the cob roasted over an open fire. I don't have a favorite author -- I like so many!

Andrea R said...

Happy Anniversary -- just signed up as a Google friend.

Andrea R said...

My favorite veggie is asparagus (sp?) -- second is brussel sprouts. Someone once called me weird b/c of my choice of favorite veg's! They probably would say that celery was their fav!

Andrea R said...

Hmmm.. author is hard. Right now I am liking Jody Picolt - kind of stuck on her books. So many to choose from.

Paula Laird said...

This is so pretty! Happy blogaversary! I am now following your blog! (Although, I totally thought I already was following you, but somehow not.)

Paula Laird said...

Hmm, my favorite vegetable is pumpkin, preferably in the form of baked goods, but to just eat a veggie - sweet potatoes. Grilled asparagus is good, too.

Paula Laird said...

Jane Austen is one of my all-time favorite authors. Happy blogaversary again! :)

Anonymous said...

A great Australia author you may not have heard of is Bryce Courtney. His book "The Power of One" and the sequel, "Tandia" are two of my all time favourite books. Thought you might like an international author to consider!! I love your blog and your art. It's always beautiful and inspiring.

Lemme see...my favorite vegetable is probably red bell peppers. I love how sweet and crunchy they are! I'm proud to say that my little guy loves them too!

Alyssa S said...

Hmmm, favorite author...I'm not sure. I do love the whimsical writing style of Mary Kay Andrews, particularly Hissy Fit. Just a fun and fast read...highly recommend it!
