Story of Elegance 

It’s Tuesday, and I’ve decided that I need a little Ornate Style in my life.   I’ve crafted the cards for today using the new Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder and the  Ornate Style Bundle comprised of the Ornate Style stamp set and Ornate Style die set.  These products are so pretty, it’s a dream to use them to create.  They have quickly become one of my all time favorite sets.  The options are seemingly endless.  I love that!

Like almost everyone, I’m looking for ways to reach out to my friends and family.  I’m using email, telephone, video calls, and online meetings.  Greeting cards are also in my communications arsenal.  I think an unexpected card in the mail does double duty.  It adds a little unexpected joy to the day, and it lets the recipient know that you thought about them too.  With this thought in mind, I’m continuing to craft cards to send a few paper hugs to those I care about.

Today, I’m sharing my two latest hugs.  Here they are!
