WORLD CARD-MAKING DAY 2016!!

Standard

Today is World Card Making Day!  Which is a fabulous day!  Everyone should make a card.  Do it.  Today.  It’s therapeutic.  If you cannot make a card, at least send a card.  Take back the snail mail from ads and circulars. Communicate via pen and paper.  Support a post man (disclaimer:  my father-in-law is a retired postman, however no money exchanged hands in this endorsement… 🙂 )

Anyway, here is what I have in honor of World Card-making Day!

20160928_162352I just love this succulent stamp set!!  It’s called Live, Love, Grow.  It’s just the perfect set for world card-making day.  Cause it’s FAST.  You can make a bunch and get them sent out right quick!

I am in love with the copper thread.  This is a new color addition to the thread line this year and it is just fabulous.  Perfect for fall.

And, you just have to see how I decorated the envelopes.  I found these perfect stamps, (SHHHHH, they aren’t from Stampin’ Up! but they were so cute I could NOT resist.)

 

In honor of the occasion, I’m going to do a little prize give-away.  Comment with the first name of someone you will send a card to today and I will put your name into a drawing for a pack of cards (this succulent card included).  You must comment by Sunday Night (Oct 2) to be considered for the giveaway.  I will contact the winner on Monday!

And, Of course SU! could not let this day go by with out some fanfare.  Check out their specials in honor of WCMD:  wcmd_flyer_demo_oct0116_us

ALSO:  For the whole month of October, all Designer Series papers are on sale:  buy 3 get one free!  This is a fabulous time to stock up!!

Ok!  Enough reading!  Go get making cards!  And send cards!

A Little V-Day Decor

Standard
A Little V-Day Decor

I realized Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but I want to share a little of the decor I made for the house.  Actually, I made 13 of these…  sent to family on the mainland for Valentine’s!!  What a wonderful piece of HAPPY mail!

Even though I made it pink and hearts, I really tried to keep it from being TOO Valentine-y just cause I wanted people to be able to leave it up past the holiday.  Just cause it is very cheery…

Love the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper.  It’s fabulous.  I actually thought it would be too pink for my liking, but when it came, I was wonderfully surprised.  It seems to go well with everything.

I cut the banners out on the big shot… cut out the dsp and photos alike.  The big shot makes the easiest banners… (and many other things.)

Our little heart punch lines up very well with the Hearts TIEF… The glimmer cut outs glued in real well..  (oops, looks like one of my hearts is a little crooked…)

I had a very hard time getting pictures without glare…

One of my favorite card sites (for making digital cards) is Pear Tree Greetings.  I saw the idea of sending a Valentine’s Banner on their site.  But, it was about $3 EACH.  To order!  And, I figure, with this banner, I spent less than a dollar!  And, it came together in minutes!  You could modify for any occasion!

Ok.  Homework:  Go make some spring banners.  And send me some pics!!  I wanna see.  They are so much fun!!
