The perfect cards for summer!! So cute!


Such cute cards and I love the fishy it looks just like the edible goldfish-yum!


Nice. Really like how I'm swept away as an imaginary participant in each card just by the simple way you staged each scene.

Andrea Bentz

Novell, these all rock!!! Super, super cute cards!!!


Great summer cards...the hammock on the beach is calling my name!!

Kristin Z.

These cards are all so "relaxing"!! That is really cool had you made the hammock hang between the 2 trees. I love had they all make up a summer scene. Thanks so much for sharing. Your designs are awesome!


nice cards, thanks for the ideas.

Novell, I love your stuff. Your style is very clean and fun! TFS!


I am so inspired! I LOVE the hammock inbetween the two trees! Everytime I am at my local stamp store I keep looking for the little crab. My mom is turning sixty this month and her astrological sign is Cancer (the crab), I have been toying with the idea of stamping sixty crabs! Beautiful cards Novell! Thanks for the inspiration!


That hammock looks so comfy!


Super cute cards. I love the bottom fishing one. You are one talented gal!!


Cute cards!

Super cute card! I like the little details, like the crab! Great job, Novell!


I love the crab on the little island! He looks so happy. I also like how you perched the hammock between the two trees, very fun!

I love the little extra's that Norvell adds to her cards. It's the detail that makes her's a notch above so many others. That little hutch next to the fisherman is so cute.

Janet Allen

What fun cards. I love the doodle waves & that hammock looks so inviting.. Thanks, Norvell, for sharing your talent with us.


The hammock between the two trees offers one of the more relaxing (and therefore wonderful!) cards I have seen recently. I just love it and wish I had the outdoor setting at my house to match!

Liz N

Love these! Such great talent!

Tina Mayo

really cute cards!! Really like the summer one.

Donna Degen

Oh, the perfect pasttime for the dogdays of summer!


These cute cards have had me dreaming about lying around in a hammock. I went to Wally's to check them out and found one for $5. I didn't think it would be much of a hammock since it was so inexpensive, but I was pleasantly surprised. I have Norvell to thank because my dream has now become a reality:)
