Thinking Of You Pocket Card

What Did I Create This Week?

Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! What’s on your desk this week?

Today I created a pretty card that is suitable for any occasion – or no occasion at all!

What’s special about this card is that – tucked behind the flowers – is a built-in pocket where you can tuck a love note or a secret gift to surprise and make your recipient’s day!

For information about some of the cool challenges that helped inspire this card’s design, be sure to check out the Art Challenges at the end of this post!

Magellan’s New Toy

Magellan's New Toy

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to extend birthday wishes to Magellan this week! Magellan is having a blast playing with all of his new toys! To find out which one he’s most captivated with at the moment, be sure to visit us at our Wordless Wednesday Party – and feel free to link up your favorite photo during your visit!
