JUST A NOTE - Pocket Band

Hi, There!

I fell in love with these little note cards and matching envelopes and just had to show one more in a post.  This time I wanted to show you the whole little card.  

I stamped on the envelope flap.  And also stamped on the outside of the card and applied a die-cut flower (stamped and colored with Copic Markers)  that was popped onto the notecard front with 3D foam.

So I made a belly band and covered it with pretty lace.  Papers from SU.  I tucked in the notecard inside the envelope for the recipient to use or the person receives the card with two notes written - one on the little card - or you can tuck some $$ inside for a gift and write your message inside the card.

I just had fun with these as they worked up so fast - which at times is what I am all about as I will be rushing to get to the next idea rattling around in my head!!!  LOL

Thanks for stopping by, thanks for all the sweet comments you may leave me, always appreciated.  Hugs and be blessed always ~ CaroleAnn

HELLO FRIEND A note within a note!

Hi, There!

Hope my note finds you well and safe. 

I received these great little note cards with matching envelopes from my SU demonstrator as a freebie and I made a few different color-themed cards with them.  It was fast and easy - which I was happy about as my supply of cards for gifts was getting very low.

The heart clip keeps the top of the envelope closed over the notecard - the inside of the envelope top is in a solid color matching the card front.  Papers from SU.

The flower is from Floral Notes/Verve and popped up with 3D foam and the sentiment from the same stamp set. 

Thanks for stopping by, till next time, hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn

Just an extra photo of another color theme card made from the same products.

Hi, There!

Just a fast post today.  I used a combination of products here.  The card base is white with cardstock from my stash in yellow and green.  The sentiment is white embossed/Floral Notes/Verve.  The image is also from the same - fussy cut and popped up on a SU paper circle die cut.  The green background was done with Tim Holtz Alterations die-cut.

Thanks so much for stopping by,  if anyone is celebrating a birthday - then blessings to you and enjoy your day!  Till next time, hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!!!

As some of you know,  I am trying to go thru all my old wooden stamps and trying to de-clutter - but I'll be darned each time I find a stamp and use it - then I don't want to part with it!!!!  This is not good!  Taking one step forward and 5 back!!!  LOL

So here is this little guy from PSX/Sugar & Mice.  No date on the stamp, but I know it is an oldie but goodie.   Just too cute and I plan to make a few more cards and change up the colors on his flower.  

The paper used is from SU/Best Dressed and the sentiment is from SU/Butterfly Gala.  I fussy cut this little guy - I want to call him Gus - I think I am thinking of the mouse in Cinderella and I thought he was so cute too;)  So Gus is colored with Copic Markers and popped up with 3D foam on a die-cut circle.  The ribbon is from my stash.

Hi There!

Just a little note today and short post.  I had this SU set for some time now and just getting around to using it and the butterflies are just so pretty.  I love butterflies, so gentle and delicate and they just bring a smile to your face.

Every year my husband hangs the hummingbird feeders outside of our back porch and we buy these hanging planters that attract both butterflies and hummingbirds and then we sit on our back porch and watch the show that never fails to amuse both my hubby and myself - enjoying the simple things in life;)

Our weather has been cold here so waiting for those days when hoping, we can be watching this action once more this year.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek, stay well, and hugs and blessings always ~

Hi, There!

I had so much fun making these projects to keep me sane;)  The images are from SU and so is the background paper and all die cuts used.  I used a combo of SU and Copic markers.

I do not like bugs of any kind, but these are too darn cute not to like;)  Thanks for stopping by, hugs and be blessed always ~ CaroleAnn

Hi, There!

This is the last of my Raggedy Ann cards.  I need to be onto something else that I received that is new to me and want to play with it.

Finding these stamps in my stash has been a blessing.  Something about Raggedy Ann and Andy always brings back happy memories for me.  So to color this stamp up has been rewarding while putting a smile on my face and giving me some happy time.

And I am blessed to have been able to do this at this time.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can find some time to color and enjoy the peace that it can invoke.  Be safe, stay well.   Hugs and be blessed always ~ CaroleAnn

Entering Card 1 for:

Cute Card Thursday  #628 ATG
Southern Girls - Team Trace - April ATG

As from my previous post to this one, all images are wooden stamps from a company called Stampabilites, and all the papers used are from my stash.  Used a stitched circle die-cut for two of the images and a stitched rectangle die-cut for one.
