I'm sticking with my gift-giving theme of the last few months: personalized notecards. I have a fun birthday lunch with girlfriends in a few days, so Saturday I went to the nearest scrapbooking store, Pebbles in My Pocket, and found the cutest papers with which to make a couple card sets.
The Asian-looking paper is from Crate Paper, part of their Pink Plum collection, and the "Cheerful Cherry," which has great metallics, is from American Crafts / Dear Lizzy, part of her Spring collection.
One of my good friends, Heather, has always done an amazingly creative job with gift-giving. The presentation and the little details are always so fun. Whenever I've received a gift from her I've felt it came with the most thoughtful consideration; was designed especially for me. It really makes a difference. While I've always loved gift-giving and wrapping, she has inspired me over the years, so with a celebration in mind I found these fun crystal candy suckers to tie with the cards. While another year passing doesn't always feel like a celebration for some, at least my friends can channel childhood with a totally sugary treat.
I hope they like them.
