Happy to be Back

~You Always Make My Heart Smile~

Oh dear. Has it really been (I'm embarrassed to say) almost a month since my last post?
Yes, I fear it has. Worse yet, it has been much longer since I've made anything to share. But that changes today :)

I've officially opened all the boxes and almost fully sorted out my new little crafty room (pictures to follow hopefully soon), and I have a little card duo I'd like to share with you to help me celebrate getting back into the creative swing of things.


This card is made up mostly of pretty Papertrey Ink stamped images and die-cuts. I used the Stitched Sentiments stamp set, In Stitches and Heart Prints dies, and pretty ink colors in Melon Berry, Aqua Mist, Smokey Shadow and Berry Sorbet


I misted a ribbon to match and found a couple of pretty buttons to layer on top. 


Aren't these colors just so sweet and delicate? And the sentiment is just so lovely. On a chilly day like today, it's just the kind of cheery pick-me-up card that would put a smile on anyone's face. 


I loved the colors so much, that I decided to make a set of matching stationary and an envelope to boot. 

A flat faced card with a flower design, followed with a decorated envelope. 

I love when the packaging is just as pretty as the treasures inside....Don't you? 


There is a bit of work on the horizon for me today, but I do hope that I will be able to tuck away all the last little bits of my room very soon and share my new creative space with you. 

Wherever you may be, thank you for visiting today and I hope to see you back here soon!

xoxo
