From my heart, to your home

Snail Mail...a disappearing form of communication. I refuse to participate in its demise.  As much as I love the instant gratification of being able to communicate with someone via text, email, private message, etc. there is something so much more endearing about a personal note or letter and especially, a handmade card. Most of the time, the mail box is devoid of any form of joy but rather abundant with the dismal reminder that there are bills to be paid and obligations to be met. Today I chose to send a little handmade cheer!  It is always nice to be thought of, especially when it is unexpected.

I made three of the exact same card, because who said bad things always have to come in threes? Can't good things, too? I think so!  I used one of my all-time favorite stamp sets; Love Lives Here by PTI. I chose my color scheme based on these yummy papers. I just love them. I just recently made a "Baby's First Year" mini flip album for a friend for a baby shower using the same paper. I wasn't thrilled with the photos I took (unfortunate lighting and too little time) but you can check it out at the bottom of this post if you are interested in seeing it.
I always love adding a little stitching to my handmade cards. I especially love adding it with a felt element as well, as I did with the bottom border on these cards. I hope these cards bring a little cheer to the recipients. Thanks for fluttering by!

P.S. I haven't done a ton of papercrafting for my son's Thomas the Tank Engine party he is having Saturday, but I will still share the details if you are interested. I actually have put together quite a few birthday parties for my kids in the last year, so maybe I will do an entire "birthday" series,

I just wanted to say--not only do I love your card, but I would love to see a series on kids' birthday parties! I am trying to figure out what to do for my kids already this year--would love to see what others are doing!

I hired this planner to be our month of wedding planner. She did such a great event planning job! She helped me with so many things that I never would have thought about myself. She is very professional and on top of everything. She helped make my wedding day absolutely perfect.
