Are you up for a Blog Hop? Link over to Mary Fish and have a little fun. The retired list is out and the new catalog will be revealed in a flash. My does time fly! I was inspired to create this beauty from a recent post by Judy May. A friend of mine will be over later to pick it up. My hope is the receiver will be encouraged by the love that went into the creation of it!
Tip 1: My commission involved purple, a sympathy card, and butterflies. Well how did I do? Do you see the elements she asked for, and a few more indeed. Extra special involves much labor and more love than you can possibly imagine. Want to take a gander at how long it took me to create this beauty?
Tip 2: Don’t panic, it looks hard, but you can do it, if you just give it a try. Too complicated, simplify where you need to, substitute tools, or make it your own, just be creative! You will be surprised by what is in that think tank of yours if you just pause a moment and take a look around.
Tip 3: I decorate the envelope and inside of my cards to coordinate with the overall look. I’d show it off, but some things are just better off kept secret. I might could be persuaded to reveal, but it will cost you. Can you afford it?
