  1. Kath, beautiful projects but my fav is that lighthouse. Wonderful!!

  2. Love, love, love the lighthouse! Definitely a CASE.

  3. Hey, Kath, super cards. But an iris fold ornament? Fabulous! Can't decide which I like best; the gatefold card is so cute, but the lighthouse is stunningly beautiful. Great projects!

  4. Great cards, Kath, as always, and I can't possibly choose a favorite!

  5. Kath, wonderful cards. I love the iris fold ornament, it looks like stained glass to me. The lighthouse is my favorite though.

  6. Wonderful cards, Kath! I think my favourite is the gatefold one; I love the White Christmas set! Your iris fold is amazing, and the colouring on the last card is lovely.

  7. Loving that iris fold card so much. Looks like the ornament is made from stained glass or is that beautiful glass tile work.
    Lighthouses are a favorite of mine so I'm liking that a whole lot.
    Awesome gatefold.

  8. Your lighthouse card is amazing. Love the watercoloring here. All lovely cards.

  9. Great Cards Kath! I love the lighthouse card!

  10. Hi Kath, thanks so much for continuing to be part of our terrific blog hop. Your projects are stunning! I loved the single layer gate fold and immediately put that into my CASE file and then found myself loving that wonderful example of an iris-fold card just as much. Great idea, using the new Curvy Corner Trio punch. The watercoloured lighthouse, however, takes my breath away. You've created such a lovely piece of art there, Kath, I'm dying to see if I can get results that are close to that artistic.

  11. Oh my, Kath. You've hit the bell on all three of your terrific projects. The single gatefold card took my breath away. I loved the embossed trees on the outer folds and the little scene inside. Your Lighthouse card is also a breathtaking little work of art. Thanks so much for sharing.

  12. Gorgeous cards, Kath! You're gate fold card is stunning!
