SSC #3

"Happiness is a warm 'hello' from someone specially nice to know."
One of my favorite quotations, from one of my favorite little girls, Strawberry Shortcake. I love that this quotation reminds me that a simple, "Hello" is all that someone might need. I presonally hate to talk on the phone. LOATHE it. However, I love getting cards, texts, emails,etc. even if they are just a quick, "Hi!"

I made this berry sweet card using an image from a retired Day-At-A-Glance Strawberry Shortcake calendar. The green and white checked ribbon is from Crafts 2000, and the strawberry print ribbon was in teh dollar section at Micheal's. I like the visually plaseing effect of rounding only two corners of the cardstock.

We are in Lanacaster, PA!

So, I have been making cards in our hotel room in the evenings while Brian watches sports on TV. Anyone interested in seeing photos of the cards I have made this week?

Feeling incredibly inspired by Pinterest, I whipped up these little bookmarks for my students. On Valentine's Day, I put a bookmark on each student's desk. They loved them! I love that little heart punch from Stampin' Up!. Before anyone thinks about jumping all over me for using the paintchips, I was assured that it was okay to take them. Now, I need a St.Patrick's Day goodie appropriate for middle schoolers. Any ideas?

A Little Birdie Told Me...

I love this little Stampin' Up set. The birds, depending on the colors and papers you combine them with, can be used for all types of cards. This one simply says, "Hello There" and I love the way it turned out. The little buttons mimic the polka dot pattern of the paper. This was a little out of my box because I used green, my least favorite color. However, I thought it was fitting with St. Patrick's Day right around the corner.
