Perfect Day Greeting Card

CTMH Perfect Day Card

What Did I Create This Week?

My, how time flies this time of the year! It’s time for another rendition of What’s On Your Work Desk Wednesday – and time to share another handcrafted greeting card!

Today is the perfect day to surprise a friend with a little gift sent out of the blue – and the perfect day to create a one-of-a-kind greeting card to spotlight a sweet little note!

Close To My Heart’s “Perfect Day” line of stamps and papers make the perfect backdrop for a friendly greeting!

They’ve long since retired – but chances are, you have something similar lying around to create a card of your own!

    Fabby Card and it’s true our cats do hunt out the spots where they can rest and seeing mine doesn’t like me out of his sight when I’m home he’s always around under foot or trying to take the big spot on the right of my desk 🙂 Happy WOYWW hugs Nikki # 9

      Every week it seems like Magellan has a new favorite place to hang.
      This week he’s been spending time UNDER the computer hutch!
      I have a shelf there that he likes to hang out on.
      The trouble is, he also likes to play with the cords (hope he is outgrowing that habit!)

  4. He does look like he is chilling out in that pic. Love the colours and the graphic paper you used on this card. #17

  5. Awesome card! I think I still have a sheet or two of that paper line! Thanks for sharing and have a great week. Vickie #25

  6. Eliza says:

    Sweet card…
    Thanks for sharing with us at CraftyCatz this week.x

  8. mary anne says:

    It’s rare to find a stamp that is totally unique – there is almost always a similar enough version out there, it’s just a matter of finding it, or revising the design slightly. And I agree – that IS HAPPY paper.

    Happy WOYWW!

  1. […] Ramona – Perfect Day Greeting Card […]

  2. […] Today’s card is full of surprises. First, the base papers come from Close To My Heart’s Perfect Day Kit, which isn’t a Christmas kit at all – I believe it was originally a Spring release – but these particular papers in the set had a wintery feel to me. If you’d like a peek at a few of the other papers in this set, check out my Perfect Day Greeting Card. […]
