Thoughts of you...


When I saw these stamps in the Inkadinkado catalog, I KNEW I had to have them. I have long been a lover of beautiful stationary, and these stamps lend themselves so well to beautiful handmade stationary that anyone is sure to love. In my humble opinion, there IS no greater gift.

The stamp used for the card is called Flight of Fancy . I stamped it on white cardstock, colored with Prisma Color Pencils, then cut it out and adhered to the green circle. It has been AGES since I've used my Prisma pencils, and I really don't know why!

The sentiment, also from Inkadinkado, is called Thoughts of You .


After stamping and embossing the sentiment, I colored in the spaces with coordinating colors using my Prisma pencils to match the Butterfly image.

The matching envelope was stamped with Inkadinkado's Spring Is Sprung along the outer edges. The address portion is a stamp called Garden Frame . I just love how coordinated all the images look on the card, as well as the envelope.

So...that's it for me tonight. I've had a pretty tough week at the office, so I hope to call it a day a bit early tonight.

Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous and super fun! Just love the matching envie! I just don't think there's anything better in life than good stationary - I guess that's why we find ourselves in this hobby/addiction!

I like the way your circle layers are all shifted to the upper right corner! That is so clever.

I couldn't think of any reason to buy the garden frame, although I saw it and liked it.

Brilliant to use it on the envelope. The idea seems so simple and yet.......

That is why I need to visit blogs. Find Ideas!
