Boxed Note Card Set...

.... and MISSING YOU greetings from your long lost Jug-HEAD, friend!



It's ME, it's ME, it's REALLY me!



And I busted out some FARM ANIMALS to prove it!

HOWDY, friends! I feel like all I do, lately, is apologize
for my absence. {But I AM sorry!} Lot's, lot's and LOTS
going on, but I've got my lunge whip out and I'm puttin'
it ALL back in order! SEE: how I got these here varmits
to stand in line! And, who better to influence me, than
our lovely DANA G., Jug-HEAD veteran, extraordinaire!


That's RIGHT, this was HER idea!

And WHAT a scrumptious & useful one it was! Aside from
creating a boxed set of cards {INCLUDING the box!}
we were challenged to create sentiments and/or
embellishments to customize cards by the receiver
of this delightful box-o-custom stationary!
{WHAT a BRILLIANT idea! I'm tellin' ya!}

~Talk ABOUT a terrific Mother's Day Gift!~



I whipped out some of my FAVE/recent Wplus9Design Studio Stamps!
Spring Tags, Folk Art Florals, Circle Stackers 1 Die, and
Defining Words {Background Stamps}... Combined with some
{HOARDED!!!} favorite paper {!} and BUTTONS....! And ALL
kinds of crafty bits and fabulosity of HUGE crafty-fun potential!
Just sayin' - it FELT good to get my craft ONNNNNNNNN!



So, yeah - just in case you over looked the STUNNING, drop dead
with paper crafty delightful DETAIL of this GORGEOUS medallion
die from Circle Stackers 1 ... Yes, I DID go there! {GET yerself SOME!}

~ Just sayin'... GREAT price, cuts like BUDDAH!~

Now, then. Did you savor the details?



I'm NOT trying to be prissy...



It's just that when you ... uh.... COLLECT, like I do...
IT FEELS AMAZING TO LET THE HORSIES RUN
like these materials in these here cards did! OMG!
A girl LOVES to craft - forever and EVER, Amen!

SPEAKING OF CRAFTY GIRLS!!! {Wait for IT!!!!!}

Glad to have you back, girlfriend! I love your card set! Especially the piggie card! My late brother and I had a thing for pigs...we used to call each other Porky and Arnold (from Green Acres) when we were kids and it spilled over into our adult lives! So this brought back so many memories! Very pretty card set and packaging!
