Yesterday I posted about an address booklet I made for my friend, Lucy. When I stopped by her home this morning to deliver the little gift, she had a gift for me. A Valentine gift! It was a jar of freshly made Lilikoi-Guava Jam, all packaged up in a box made with the Sending Love Designer Series Paper, sealed with hearts punched with the Heart to Heart Punch. Whoa! The best part of all of it was that my husband felt like he had to taste the jam and made himself some toast. He’s been feeling so sick for the last few days that I was thrilled that he had an appetite for something with some flavor.
So a big "Thank You" to Lucy – and, of course, a Thank You card will be on its way with Tuesday’s mail pick up.
What better way to make a Thank You note for a Valentine’s Gift than with some of the same Sending Love designer series paper. And this fit right in with a challenge for one of my online Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator groups, SUDSOL. The challenge was to use Red, White and Blue in a design. The colors for this card are Real Red, Not Quite Navy (my favorite Stampin’ Up! blue) and Very Vanilla. The ribbon is one of the new 5/8" satin ribbons, and the stamp set is from the Sale-A-Bration catalog, Happy Moments.
Once again, I used the new Scallop Trim Border and Corner punches to make a border around the whole central motif. I can hardly wait for an excuse to use this punch set!
