MATCHING INSERT...

The Decorative Label Punch was all it took

to make these pretty "legs"...

And the colors are M.F.E.O. (made for each other)...

Occasionally, I make a simple matching insert to send with a card.

Check this out!!

Can you imagine opening an envelope from someone you love, finding a handmade card, and also finding a sweet little insert. Would you feel special or what!!  (Do you have this punch?)

PAPER QUILTING...

When the RETIRED LISTS were published yesterday (April 24th), I looked over the ten cards on my computer desktop which are ready to post here on Polka Dots and Paper, and saw that every one of them includes something (or several somethings) on the retired lists!!! This "quilted" card has two!  Can you spot them?

D

One is the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (from Sale-A-Bration).  The other is the button made with the #5 Button Sizzlit...

(I love quilting whether with paper or fabric.)

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Tomorrow's card (black and white), has three retired products. They are all out of the Annual Catalog and are three of my favorites.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS...

All winter long, my husband has said that when spring arrives, he will start working on my Honey-Do-List which includes building an outdoor BBQ. I made this card and wrote sweet things inside to remind him of his promise...

And I included a little photo of a BBQ...

So... I wonder how long it will take him to get inspired!!
