A Paisley 3"x6" Card

Did I mention how excited I am that the price of A-size stamp sets DROPPED to only $7.95?!? In this day and age when everything seems to be going up but pay checks, it is terrific to see a price drop without the value lessening. I used my new A Paisley stamp set to create this little 3"x6" card. I love this size! It will fit in a small business envelope that you probably already have on hand.

My card is based on the Wishes "Noteworthy" sketch. To create the large paisley, I first stamped it in Chocolate on the Heavenly Blue B&T (Background & Texture) paper from the Topstitch paper pack. I also stamped it in Baby Pink on Colonial White card stock. I cut out the large Chocolate paisley and adhered a cut-out Baby Pink flower to it, then fastened it all together with a Baby Pink brad. The small paisley was stamped in Vineyard Berry on Baby Pink card stock and then cut out. I embellished the sentiment piece with a Cottage Edge Anchor, mixing the Baby Pink edge anchor with a Colonial White brad, all from the same pack. Isn't it fun to mix and match?
It's back to school today, so wish us all luck! Since hubby doesn't have any jobs pending, he is going to the dump, getting rid of the Christmas tree, splitting wood for the heater, etc., etc., etc. He is going to pick up the girls after school so that they don't have to spend the afternoon at the grocery store. Yeah for them and yuck for me. At least I've got this week's meals planned out and my coupons ready, purged, and organized. :) Never a dull moment...

My...I'm impressed with the card ('adowable') and with the week's meals all planned out! I think it is soup for us tonight, and that is as far as I have gotten.

Love the cards that will fit in a bs envelope! This one is simple, but still quite elegant.

You're ahead of me on the planning - I need to go through coupons tonight and pull out all the 2009 ones! Stay warm.
