      Hi Dana. Thanks for your feedback. As you can see there is a “non-commercial” license. That means you may not use this work for commercial purposes. My work is free for all my readers so that they can get inspired to make cards for friends and family. Not for sale. Sorry about that.

    Vicky…I started on Hero Arts web site this morning. About an hour later, I found your site (from the “Sew Special” card – love it!). I’ve been here on your site for about 45 minutes. I love this site, and you do beautiful work!! I also enjoy DH’s background music. I enjoy your videos very much, too.

    Thanks so much for the talent and time you put into this site. I have bookmarked it for many future visits and e-mailed the link to my crafting friends. But right now…I’m so inpired by your work that I need to head to my basement craft room and get busy!

    Bίκυ, καλημέρα. Τα βίντεο με τα art journal σου και εγώ συναντηθήκαμε πριν λίγο. Είναι εξαιρετικά. Συγχαρητήρια! Θαυμάζω τον τρόπο με τον οποίο χειρίζεσαι τα χρώματα. Εγώ είμαι τελείως αρχάρια στο “χώρο” και ενώ λατρεύω τις κατασκευές, μου φαίνονται βουνό. Ευτυχώς έχεις πολύ υλικό σε βίντεο για να μάθω και να πάρω ιδέες. Καλή συνέχεια.
    Φιλικά, Ρούλα.

    It’s great to have been introduced to you (through my daughter Megan who found you on You tube). I have been a craft lover for many years, making jewellery for a little over 20 years and dabbling in card making, scrap-booking and the like for many years also. I have found your video clips on You Tube and inspiration and it’s great to have a passion I can share with my little girl. We haven’t begun to art journal yet, but I already have half the supplies because of the other crafts I do. Can’t wait to get started. Love your accent too by the way. I could have sworn you were French! Can’t understand how I got that wrong. Anyway, wanted to write to say thank you.

    I love your ideas & videos, you have a nice voice & I just love your accent. I am so envious of you being affiliated with Simon Says stamp as I sit and make cards everyday. Unfortunately in Australia it costs double for these beautiful stamp sets & then postage.
    Thanks for what you do..

    Dear Vicky: I’m looking about weeks for a special video, that I’ve seen on your youtube channel one year ago or like this., and I can’t find it any more. This was a christmas card and the special work was the background made with blurring distress ink (green) and the second step was stamping a watered stamp with branches. This looked so beautiful! And your finally words were: that you loved most the background.
    I’m not sure about the technique. It would helping me seeing the video. Do you know what I mean and is it possible to find his video anywhere??
    thanks for sharing all your work, I#m so inspired!!

    Hi. Vicky,
    I’m new to your site and I find that as far as talent goes you are at the top of your art, in other words, I wish I was you. It’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to create and since I’ve been following you I have the urge again to do so and it makes me feel good inside. That’s what people look for when they create something or watch a good artist create it makes them feel good inside. Thank you for that.

    Hi Vicky
    I noticed you’ve been using a lot of Tonic products lately. How do they compare with other company’s similar products? Are you working with Tonic or are the products more readily available in your area?

Wish I had known you when I came to Greece to meet my Greek relatives. I agree with all your fans your work is magical and wonderful. Please don’t ever stop your card making or painting. Bye the way we have a beautiful cat named Niko. I love to see your sweet cat when you are at home working. I am from Canada originally now living in Florida. I am always watching your you tube channel. Thank you very much. Love you so much.😇 xoxo

    Hi Vicky,
    I watch your card making and journaling on YouTube every chance I get. Like Ginger, I absorb your creativity. Especially how you “correct” what you hadn’t anticipated on your projects.
    I would so much like to draw as well as you do; I keep practicing. When I see your final (awesome) results, I feel more confident in creating ‘on the fly’.
    You have reintroduced me to companies I’d forgotten about: Faber-Castell, Paper Artsy. And newer companies like Arteza. I couldn’t make layered flower cards as well without my new Tonic Stamp Platform and Altenew stamps/dies.
    Your adaptability from “distress” to “whimsical” styles amazes me.
    While playing with my new Distress Oxide inks, I used several techniques you taught me, on my Easter cards this year. My friends and family loved them! Of course I gave you the credit!
    My Sizzix circle dies arrived in the post today – shaker cards this weekend!!!
    If you’re teaching any artist journaling classes when I visit Greece in fall 2020, I’d love to sign up for one.
    THANK YOU for all of your hard work to make us better artists!
    (Scrapbook.com has Fabulous customer service and I’m really liking their stamping ink. Thank you for listing them on YouTube.)
    Gotta run to catch up with your latest May videos on YouTube now.
