More Gift Sets

Just a quick post here. My mother arrived yesterday...yippee!!! Like most of you, I will be focusing on family for the next week or so, and posts here will be thin. I want to thank each and every one of you for sticking with me and making Simplicity the very cool place it is. It wouldn't be cool without YOU!

So here are a few more of the note card gift sets I made for my son's teachers, therapists, and aides.

The two-step hearts from Heart Prints (Papertrey) turned out so well, I decided to create an assortment of colors. Here's an example of Memento's really light colors being useful.

More polka dots, this time from Background Basics: Polka Dots (Papertrey). I used the smallest dot border stamp twice to get the green and pink in there. LOVE doing that.

Finally, I pulled out a clear set from Hero Arts and my Memento markers for a citrus-y rainbow.

These are packaged in Papertrey's clear card boxes with envelopes from Marco's Paper...a local establishment with an online store. The employees are so nice, and the shop is a treasure trove of crafting and artsy goodness.

And no, they aren't paying me to say anything. I just like spreading the word when a local small business does a great job!

Merry Christmas to you all!!!!

I'm grateful that my mother has moved to the same town I live in so we can keep our eyes on each other.
