I think I know this... once a friend of mine told me about this deck, but I never got around to buy it. I think I may make it my next purchase once the dollar drops a bit again!

Great decks, ladies. I also love CJ Freeman’s illustrations, but there is something that has really resinated with me in finding a personal deck which has been initiated for readings with this system. I never expected the Anne Stokes to be worth a glade, but those paintings are becoming almost standard for me as the PCO meanings go.
You know, I think it's fantastic that you are using the Anne Stokes deck! Because you read so well with it, it's clear that it speaks to you. And ultimately, that's what matters. The cards have to speak to you, the reader.
It's funny, because personally I would not use the Anne Stokes deck for reading, but I enjoy watching you use it!
Lately I have been carrying a cheap poker deck in my purse... I plan to start reading with it when possible, to practice with a different deck for a while!
Yesterday I bought a deck made by a brazilian artist called Carol W. It's very cute, called "My kingdom for a Caramel Candy", lol! I can't wait to try it... you can see pictures of the deck here:
