I ordered a few stamp sets from PTI several weeks ago and was excited when they threw in an amazing little thank you set called *a big thank you*. I love freebies, especially when they're something you will use! You can never have too many thank you sentiments, and I will definitely be using this one a lot!
My cat, Sadie, wanted in on the picture, too. Did you notice how she slipped in her little paw there on the side?
My best friend, Jess, is getting married in March. I had the privilege of co-hosting a bridal shower for her several weeks ago. I stumbled across a ribbon topiary online and wanted to make one for her gift table. This is what I came up with. They're really not hard to make, just a bit time comsuming. Most of the topiaries I saw were made with just ribbon. I decided to make mine mostly with patterned papers and a few ribbons scattered in between.
Lime green and berry is a delightful combination, don't ya think? My friend has chosen them as her wedding colors, and I happened to have to a thank you card to make, so I thought I'd try them out. I love it! I'll definitely be using these colors again!
I whipped up this card for some friends who had us over for supper last weekend. I bought these cute stamps from Purple Onion Designs a few months back when they were on sale and thought the house would work nicely for a "thank you for your hospitality" card.
I made another anniversary card today, this time for my BIL and SIL. I just ordered some fun doily dies from My Favorite Things and was a tad bit disappointed when they didn't have the one I really wanted. I'm dying to get my hands on the High Tea Party Doily, which I may just have to break down and pay full price for once it's back in stock. But this one's pretty cute, and I'm happy that I bought it. I'm still lovin' The Cat's Pajamas bunny rabbits, and I'm hoping they come out with lots more new ones SOON!
The weather here is crazy warm for November, and I'm heading out to soak it all in since it might be one of the last nice days we'll get.
Our friends, Janeen and Paul, just celebrated their 10th anniversary. I made this card for them. I can't seem to get enough of this bunny! Don't ya just love stamps that can be used for almost any occasion?
Welcome to The Polka Dot Cafe. I'm so glad you stopped by. I'm a SAHM to three great kids and have been happily married to the love of my life for 23 years.
I had the privilege of designing for A Muse Artstamps for 6 years, but now I'm happy to stamp just for fun.
Grab a cup of coffee and feel free to look around a bit. Let me dish you up a delicious plate of polka dots!
