    the care of a card {paperless post}

    This post was written in partnership with Paperless Post in collaboration with¬†Anagram Interactive. I was compensated with coins for my virtual cards but my thoughts and review are my own. To me, there is just something about a person taking the time to send a card – whether virtual or in person. The person took the time to pick out a card for me, write a nice note and send it. It brings me such joy to receive cards with a thoughtful message. I truly feel that sending a card is a lost art. In this world of social media a lot of people take to leaving a quick facebook…

    Hubby’s Valentine Card

    Dave told me to make him a Valentine card this year, so I did! It’s simple and manly (I think) – that’s why I didn’t use any ribbon or glitter or girly stuff.

The Loving Life and bottom stamps are from Ali Edwards I added the hearts by hand to add some color. Paper is leftover from Project Life. I love this man! Did any of you hand-make your valentines this year?

But I have one set of letters punches that were perfect for these pennants that I did cut with my Cricut. I found a couple of dad quotes online that I typed with my vintage typewriter. These were made entirely of Pink Paislee paper from my new kit…

    two Pink Paislee cards…

    I am in love with Pink Paislee. Their products are so trendy, cute and fun so I love to purchase their kits with coordinating products. This is the latest one I’ve purchased. There are so many beautiful papers, border stickers, 6×6 papers, paper tape, letters, and more! The other night I made two cards and I love the contrast in paper and bright colors. I basically did some more simple cards with layered paper. All components are Pink Paislee except for the yellow flower and button. I love the sweet silver rub on that is on top of the turquoise paper. It says “Renew your passions daily.” All of the…

    more mini cards…I’m hooked!

    More inspiration for you all… They are all available in the shop if you don’t want to make them yourselves. The owls feature Swarovski crystal eyes that are in a beautiful turquoise color! I have 4 of each available in the new styles. This post is part of my series for 2010 where I create something as often as possible (I realized that every day was unattainable for me).
