March Rudolph Days - Season's Greetings

 


Hi, Friends......

Squeaking in here to put my March Rudolph Days card in for the month over at Scrappy Mo's.  Can't miss that!!  

I used some scraps of soft vintage patterned paper and adhesive canvas tags I received as a blog prize a long, long time ago from Ria Montefalcon.  I don't even know if she is still blogging, but her kindness continues to be appreciated as I use these lovely supplies.  

Let me take a moment to thank each of you who have sent me lovely gifts over the years.  Your generosity has warmed my heart and enriched my crafting experience by allowing me access to many products I would never have been able to afford to purchase.  In turn, I am able to bless others with the cards I make from them. THANK YOU.....all of you!!  <3


Supplies used include:
Making Memories - Fa La La Well Worn Tags (retired)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials:  Audrey Cutaways die set (retired)
Taylored Expressions - Twirls and Swirls (retired)
Patterned Paper Scraps and Solid Cardstock
Wired Ribbon from Stack

Hope you enjoyed this card.  Thank you for stopping by today!!  I hope spring is springing at your house.  My crocuses are blooming and my earliest daffodils will be soon.  There are still some traces of snow, but the weather is supposed to be warm and sunny this week......in the 50s and even hitting 60 degrees!  YAY!!

Tea-Themed Note Card Set

 


 Hi, Friends......

The Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop pulled me out of my posting absence to share a tea-themed notecard set I made using an ancient package of border wallpaper my daughter had given me a long time ago.  Perfect for cards.....but really how many of that same design do I need?  lol...   It ended up making 3 lovely sets I can give as gifts.

The border paper design was a little bit too wide for a regular A2 sized card, so I made these 5x7 instead....worked perfectly.  I have been wanting to use some of my larger scale pattern papers so I recently purchased a bunch of envelopes for this size of card.  They came in handy for these sets!  















For my sets, I varied the card base colors, patterned papers, and sentiments for an assortment in each gift.  There is another sentiment that isn't shown that says:  Tea Time.

Here's one of the sets:

Supplies used include:
Elizabeth Craft Designs - Coffee & Tea stamp set (retired)
Impression Obsession - Serendipity Tea Time
Versafine ink in Majestic Blue
Spellbinders Small DOM March 2018 (retired)
Lawn Fawn - Large Stitched Rectangles die set
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
Border wallpaper from my stash
Old patterned paper from my stash
Park Lane solid core cardstock

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my note card gift set.  I felt really good to use some old patterned paper and also that pretty border paper.  All I have from it now are some scraps to use another time!  Yay!!  

Have a great day and I'll see you over at the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Hop!
