Thank You For Your Kindness

Bringing a little summer to my friends in the north who are enduring winter right now. Dandelions and Dragonflies. You’re welcome! The new Dandy Garden Suite brings us the best of summer with Dragonflies, lady bugs, and a rich color palette of Calypso Coral, Bumblebee, Mossy Meadow, Misty Moonlight, and Blackberry Bliss what’s not to love? I paired this card with my Dandelion Wishes stamp set and the pretty patterned paper with the Dandelions. My little Dragonfly was punched out of another piece of the patterned paper, but I could also have stamped and punched him using one of the two Dragonfly stamps in the set.

May Your Season Be Filled with Magic

I really wanted to use this stocking stamp, but I was on the struggle bus with it. I looked and looked at ideas and didn’t like any of them. Then I noticed the little trees on it matched the little trees on the Trimming the Town patterned paper and that’s when it all started to come together. It reminds me of a cabin in the woods.
