You’re Kind of a Big Deal

When Logan was little, he loved marine life. Needless to say, we spent a good deal of time in aquariums, before we started scuba diving. The Whale of a Time Suite, brings back cherished memories for me. Isn’t this little turtle adorable? Such a sweet face. The beautiful Designer Series Paper does all the work on this bright quick and easy card.

Catching Snowflakes

I just love Snowmen and this one just looks like he is so happy catching snowflakes. The playfulness of the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper becomes available tomorrow (eek!) and is just perfect for Mr. Snowman. Vellum adds a softness to the card with the crinkle seam ribbon in the background. I attempted to put a sentiment on the front of this one and decided against it. I like him just as he is.
