This card is Absolutely stunning Jan!
Would be a cert to win any competition it was entered into!


Gojus!! Always Artisan in my book!

Cindy Elam

That card would have been a winner, I just know it. And THEN you'd have been stuck HAVING to make eye-poppingly fabulous projects with the free goodies Stampin' Up! sent you. Yeah, I can see why you opted out this year. ;-)

Diane McVey

That card is definitely in a league of its own! BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for sharing it with us. It really IS special!
Congrats on your new car, and your weight loss! Your car is just precious, and I know how hard those pounds are to shed. So kudos to you for doing that!
Have a great week!

Stacy Mc

This is simply beautiful. I had my entry done with 1 3d left and Callie got a hold of them and that was the end of that. Guess that was a sign... :)


Congrats on the weight loss. I know it's a struggle sometimes, but it's so worth the effort.
And I LUV your new wheels. The color is FAB & IMHO, Honda's are exceptional vehicles.
Oh, and yeah, your card is beautimous!


All your fans give you the Artisan Award...who needs SU's??? Beautiful! Also, congrats on the weight loss AND the new ride!!

Maggie S

Love the card. So sorry you weren't able to enter the contest. I'm sure you would have been a winner! You're a winner with that car though. Looks like a fun ride.

Jan I didn't enter this year either. I felt terrible last year after all the work I did on the umbrella and other stuff and they only had the 20 finalist out of which 10 were winners. I do feel that there will be many others that will not enter because of the work load involved. I have had a busier year with classes and workshops so my sales have soared and so have the amount of recruits. I am working harder than ever and I know some of the cards I have made for classes are worthy of Artisan but I want my students to have the best of my attention and creativity so I placed Artisan on the back burner this year. I always love your work. If you are at Convention this year I would love to get together with you.

Congratulations on your weight loss - holy cow, you've lost a toddler! That's a great accomplishment - and much more meaningful in the scheme of things than winning Su's artisan award.
Enjoy your sweet ride!
your card was totally worthy of the competition - gorgeous!

Linda Willman

Congratulations on bringing some balance to your life!!! That's huge and worth celebrating in an upscale fashion. Losing weight, keeping some time for yourself and your family,and did I mention losing weight!!! OMG... It's not just this beautiful card that inspires me. Way to go Jan!

Jan, you do not have to enter a contest to validate your craft brilliance. You are and always will be a great creator. Creation should be fun and not work. Keep up the good fun! Love the new car...let us know how you like it....I am a quiet stalker but I love your cards always!
