For a Gracious Hostess

The theme for Angel's Landing this week is parties. Can you believe that I don't own any invitation stamps except for wedding ones?!? You can obviously tell I don't make invitations very often, but when I do, I tend to make criss cross cards. I think it's just fun to have a matching cover for the invitation.

Daffodils are my favorite, though I am allergic to pollen. Once I saw this bear, I was instantly drawn to him! Still trying to use up my Basic Grey stash and I think it goes very well.

Paper: Basic Grey Porcelain
Stamps: Angel's Landing, sentiment is PTI
Copics, Nestabilities, and MS Border Punch


For a personal shout out, I got my e-learning project back from the President and the CEO of the company yesterday...and they didn't make any edits! I'm so excited. We as the training department always get edits back so this is a huge accomplishment! :)

Everyone have a great hump day! It's suppose to be 100 degrees today...so hopefully I don't melt away. Though it's always freezing at work, so I guess I just never get a good balance, lol.
