My first comment seems to be missing. Weird. In any case, I totally love the cards!! I just ordered my first Anya stamps a couple days ago. Looking forward to getting them. I only have the petite ovals, so those are my fav. Forgot to say that Ashley sent me here from the Etsy-inspired blog hop!

What beautiful cards.

As for my dies, I use my nesties to death and I'm not sure that I use one more than the other.

Chris said...

WOW! THose are adorable!!

Kristen said...

ooo love these cards! :)

I want nesties! everyone has them.. and make gorgeous cards with them! I don't have any dies, but I love my circle punches.

Tasha Hickert said...

These are beautiful cards. I absolutely love the frosting on the cupcake!! Have to say I am not fond of nesties, seem to lean only to texture plates--less fussy. But probably because I don't spend much time with the die cut machine.
