Jennifer you are amazing girl! I love your simple but gorgous cards. You rocked the cards here this week. I am more than sure that the gals from Muse loved these just as much as what we do. You are so stinking talented and (when I grow-up I want to be just like you!! Lol!) Sorry I just had to say that because when my ds was little he would tell that to his Daddy and sometimes to me when he would see me painting.Lol! You are wonderful at what you do sweetie and you have blessed me so much. Thanks. My favorite embellishment lately is my Ranger Liquid Pearls. They are so cool and thanks to Jennifer I know how to make my own pearls and use them for cardmaker. Thanks again for all you do.:-)

I'm so enjoying the designer swap! Jennifer McGuire is one of my very favorites, love her style. Beautiful work!


I *heart* A Muse twinkle stickers - they come in all sorts of colors and shapes. They are the perfect addition to any card without being overdone.


I am always looking for ideas for teacher gifts and those little note cards would be fabulous as a gift set. Thanx for the inspiration!!

Kathyc on SCS

I love all of these, but the first one is awesome! Can't wait to try that out!

Hmm..favorite embellishment is between twinkle stickers and ribbon.

Ronda Archangelo

I LOVE all of Jennifer's cards. My most favorite way to add embellies would be a simple hole punch with something through that hole like a piece of thread, ribbon, jumpring, etc. My hammer and punch are used more than any tools I own!


Love the bling & the use of 'scraps'. I don't throw anything away. You just never know when you'll need it.

Michel E

Love the cards.


Love the simplicity and beauty of these cards :) My favorite embellishment for the moment has to be gems. Thank you for sharing!


Great projects.
My total favourite is the wonderful large flower. Outstanding image.
Amazing and simmple, gotta love that


The cards are beautiful and we all love just that little bit of sparkle!

Sharon L-S


The note cards are a perfect gift for grandma's birthday. Just add postage stamps and mailing labels - she's good to go. Luv it.

I thought you were using gingham ribbon until I read just below the first card. Great idea for leftovers. I also luv the twinkles on the flower card. Just 2 cute.

Did Colin help with the cards? He is such a doll.


Fun and Fresh are what these cards are. I love using all kinds of embellishments so it's hare to pick but I do love the "bling" so I'm going with that.

Patsy Behrendt

What darling cards! My fav is the Hello cards. These would be great holding a small note pad! I can see now that you have talked me into buying another stamp!!

Margaret gurney

Thanks for the swap---it's so much fun, and great inspiration cards. Jennifer has an idea a minute! I change embellishments according to style of card, and love raffia, vintage buttons, sparkly gens and glitter, too.
I love the chrusantemum stamps, especially the open one.

Angie Hall

Jennifer is on my 'visit her every day" list. I go to her for inspiration for cards and life too. She got me involved with Operation Write Home and Cards for Kids.She's super talented too. I like "flat" sparkle items because I mail lots of my cards. Thanks for chance to win.


My favorite embellishment has got to be Bling!

Miriam Daniels

Love your cards! MY fav embellishment is ribbon. I can't seem to make a card without it. :)

Kelly Braund

Definately the bling! Pre-glued rhinestones & pearls- gotta love em!

Julie in Edmonds

I want to be Jennifer when I grow up. She's one of my favorites and she did a great job with the cards.

The sparkle and ribbon on the flower set this card apart! I also really like the hello with the little popped pencil. I'll have to add that to my list of "to buy" items :)


As usual Jennifers cars are simply stunning. I'm not the bling type girl, but she have made me use some sparkling gems on almost every card now!!!

Dana Klinkner

Love all the cards Jennifer - thanks for sharing your creativity with us! My favorite embellishment has got to be glitter and ribbon- can't live with out those two. :)


Paper layering and stitching?!?! Great combo for any card...IMHO

Really like the Chrysanthemum and gingham card, but love the bright pink card with the twinkle stickers on the flowers.

I adore Jennifer's work!! These are great ideas. My favorite embellishment seems to be ribbon! It's what I use most often!! Thanks for the "swap" week.

Connie F.

I love your cards. They are usually simple (which I like) but adorable. Jennifer keep up the good work.


My favorite embellishment is probably bling (gems or pearls) or ribbon. Well, do punches count as an embellishment because I have more punches than I have room for or can count. :)

Donna Przybylowski

Love them all, especially the gingham colored cardstock.
Great combo.
All the cards are great.

Traveling Mama

These are AWESOME!! I love them all!!

Love, love, love the pencil hello cards!! That is such a great idea for teachers - and with 3 kids in elementary school - just PERFECT!!! Great job Jennifer!


I have many favorite embellishments, but I tend to use ribbon the most. Although I love twinkle stickers and pearls too.


Jennifer is so creative! I love your work! My favorite embellishments are bling and flowers. I think put them on EVERY card I make. :)

Mary Sara P.

I love the Hello card. How cute and clever. I love glitter and ribbon. Can never have enough glitter.


Jewels and ribbon. The more the merrier!


LOVE the embossing on these cards! My fave embellishment is definitely ribbon!!


Love all the cards, the gingham paper just rocks, and the little pencils, too fabulous! I think ribbon is my favorite embellishment but I'm using embossing powder, too. Great stuff today.

Janet Sisk

I love using glitter to add that little extra something to a card. My fave way is to use a Sakura Stardust gel pen. Simple glitz - Yeah!


I love using gems...they just make cards or any other stuffs stand out.Love the bling!


All the cards are inventive but really like the palm tree with the hammock, very clever! Thanks for all the great ideas!


it's a toss up for me between stitching and buttons! i love designer swap, way cooler and better than wife swap :)

I just can't get enough of fabric and paper flowers on my cards and layouts...especially this time of year!

Just love those little mushrooms!

Beth Perrotta

My favorite embellishment has got to be punches. They are so easy and versatile, and they are flat, which I love, since I mail most of my cards!
