Happy Hellos Everyone:

I hope all of my East Coast neighbors have shoveled their way out of the icy snow. I wanted to share some invitations I was asked to create for a 50th birthday celebration. Just in case some of you are wondering, I had no influence on the color selection which is lavender, black, and silver. [Smile] I can also say, "I did not have an issue with it either. Ironically, I know of another person that will turn 50 this fall and he select the same colors.

Take a look and please feel free to share your thoughts.

It maybe difficult to see looking at the pattern paper; however, I cut each invitation on an angel. Adhered, the two front pieces and the bottom together. I attached the information card to the lavender embossed paper and slid it into the invitational fold. I polished the invitation off with lavender tool and enhanced it with a clear rhinestone.

As always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

K-Cup Anyone

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I hope your Friday has kicked-off to a fantastic start. I have a wonderful keepsake box to share and I think you will thinks it's a pretty nice box too. My initial K-Cup inspire keepsake box was made because of my sister. She would often find herself giving her K-cups out. People would stop by her office and ask if they could have a K-cup. Well, she wanted to put a stop to that. So, she asked me to make a box to store her K-cup in...kind of like an out of sight, out of mind sort of thing. Take a look...

The first keepsake box I created was had a tea box theme. Not long after
 making that box, my sister wanted a similar box to store her k-cups in.

So, I made her one and I had not created another until now. I used a Tim Holtz
 miniature knob for a handle and wrapped around the handle are two tags. One
 is a business tag and the one underneath is a thank you/handle with care tag.

This photo along with the next three photos showcase the four side of the
 keepsake box. Notice the new Tim Holts foundations

Side Four

A while ago I found this ribbon that matches the coffee them perfectly. I also
 came across the trimming that surrounds of the outside of the box a couple
 of weeks ago while traveling. The mocha color trimming blends so well.

The inside bottom of the box is warm blue.
 As you can see, a week's worth of coffee
 can be store in this keepsake box.

I topped-off this keepsake box with a little coffee colored bling.

Well, as always, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

The Art of Gratitude

Happy Hellos Everyone!!!

I hope all is well with you. It's hard to believe February 2017 is just now a memory. Every since I returned to my blog, I have yet to post a greeting card. Well, here are a few I stamped out a while ago and did not have a chance to share with you until now.

I think it is so important to say thank you.

It's even nicer to express that feeling with a card.

I don't think I know anyone that doesn't like happy mail.

This stamp set, the ink, and die are from
Papertrey Ink.

I absolutely love all of their products.
I probably love them just a little too much,
if you know what I mean.

In this particular stamp, there are several different ways to express your gratitude.

This was a day I just decided to play with my stamps.

Here, I switched things up.
I decided to emboss my card.

I simply love the simplicity of this card.

As always, 'Thank You' for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
