Well, I'm slowly inching toward 300, I bet I can make it before we move in May. I realized today that I have some gifts to make, and a couple of commissions that I need to complete before I close up shop for the move. That should provide me with enough "blog fodder" (as Leslie Hanna calls it) for a few more posts.

Today I made a set of 10 thank you notes to give to my cousin as a baby gift. She's due in May, so I needed to get these cranked out before we start moving on May 1st. This is the color scheme she used in the nursery, and I so love it! I can't get enough of those cling dots from Hero Arts. I tied the set up in a simple bundle, no need to box them up because they will be used up in a flash, I'm sure.


stamps: PTI Damask Designs, Hero Arts Cling Dots, Hero Arts Truly Appreciated
cardstock: PTI Spring Rain, Dark Chocolate & Rustic Cream (I love this way more than I thought I would!)
ink: PTI Dark Chocolate & Tea Dye Duo
embellishments: PTI Spring Rain Vintage Buttons & cream crochet cotton
tools: Scor-Pal, Corner Chomper, Sizzix Tim Holtz On-The-Edge die, Cuttlebug
other: Glossy Accents, Scor-Tape
