for commenting:
Day 1 - "Oh my, these are so cool. Love all the dt's projects. Love that these are so cute, all the different poses and that you have the large and small versions. By a beak, I think my favourite is Flora. Thanks for sharing. Hugz"
Day 2 - "Gorgeous creations ladies. Really liking the Zentangle square 1 and the feathers. Would love to own Idinkera. What a great background, foreground and any ground in between. Love it. Nope, I think Zentangle square 1 is today's winner for me. Hugz"
Day 3 - "Love the cat in the colourful journal page and the b/w projects. Cat or Fish, that is the question. I think the cat wins by a whisker. These animals are so cool. Hugz"
Day 4 - "Tricky descision today, but looking at your lovely pieces it's got to be winged girl. Love the detail on the wings and her poise. She's lovely. Hugz"


for commenting:
Day 1 - "Oh these birds are fabulous, love them all, but if I had to pick it would be Spike - just something about his face :-) All the DT samples are brilliant! X"
Day 2 - "These are wonderful samples. I must be the only person in the world that doesn't normally like zentangles, but these feathers are fab, especially Feather 2 xx"
Day 3 - "So yesterday I wasn't a zentangle fan, today I'm loving it! It's a close call but the fish is my favourite x"
Day 4 - "Fabulous inspiration again, Winged Girl is my favourite too xx"


for commenting:
Day 1 - "Those birdies are so much fun. I like the 'dotty' ones best, and the mini size looks like it would work well on ATC-cards and tags. Such great inspiration pieces, too!"
Day 2 - "Such lovely inspiration! These feathers seem to be the new 'must' - I adore the multiple ways they can be used. I would love to win :-)"
Day 3 - "Such lovely temptations! That zentangle crow is awesome!"
Day 4 - "I love that Winged Girl! It seems such a versatile stamp - and oh so sweet."
