Happy Acorns

I have had a whirlwind October. I was able to visit my niece and her family in Pennsylvania. From there, we went to upstate New York to visit my son. We decided to add in a day trip to Vermont and Massachusetts. It was a much needed vacation. The one thing I forgot, though, is that I always sneak and leave a card for my son to find after we’ve said our goodbyes. There were some items I needed to mail to him after we got back home, though, so I made sure to make him one. First I made the top card with So Saffron. Hunter advised me that it was a little too feminine and that I needed to make it with a shade of blue instead. Hence, the two cards you see. I love this DSP…it’s too bad it’s retired and I’m almost out of it. Those super cute little acorns crack me up!

Flourishing Love

I have a business conference to attend about 4 hours away from home. I thought it would be nice to remind my daughter that I’ll miss her and I’m only a phone call or text away. I love the subtleness of using vellum for the butterflies and using the pearls for the body. To make it extra special, I used some DSP to make a matching envelope. I just love these colors together. So soft and pretty. The phrases in Flourishing Phrases are so diverse and they have such a lovely font.  I had decided to purchase this set in wood mount so I can easily use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure I stamp the words straight. I don’t seem to have the ability to stamp words straight just by eye-balling it. It is a wonderful tool that I turn to time and time again.  So, without further adieu, here’s the card I made for Miss Hunter:
