It’s the little things that make us happy

Hope you had a great week, mine was a bit stressful but now that it’s the weekend I’m ready to decompress and creating in my studio is just the way to do that!  I’ve started putting together my instructional for this month’s “make mine mini” album class and hoping it helps my students create with a little less stress.  After all playing with paper and ink shouldn’t be stressful, right!?

So, on to the little thing that was delivered today that made me happy……..   My new blog networking cards, I LOVE them!  There is one other card design that I was favoring so I might end up adding a second card to my stash but for now this is my new card.  Aren’t they adorable!!  I ordered them from Erica of Sweet Prints Shop you can find her Etsy shop by clicking HERE.

I probably should have waited to take photos with some true day light but I couldn’t wait, I might retake them but you get the idea, right?

They came boxed in cute clear boxes, love it!P8068228 The cards are double sided, the front has my name and blog address and the backside has my phone number and email address.P8068229Here is a close up shot of the front, love the teal and the background is a grayish/taupe/brownish color which compliments the teal well.   And did you notice that I tied the colors into my blog design?  I’m thinking about having Erica designing me a matching blog header.  I usually like to design my own header but I think it would be neat to tie in the elements she used in the cards to tie it all together.  What are your thoughts?P8068230I plan on handing some of these puppies out at Spark this coming September.  I’ve met some really neat ladies via the internet who are planning on attending Spark and I hope to make more new friends while there too.

Hope you have a great weekend planned! Hope to post again over the weekend, hugs for now.

Nancy ~ Your cards look great. And I think it is a great idea to match your header with the cards.
