3 x 3 Note cards

I am still adding to my stash :-). This week I decided to add some 3x3 note cards with little envelopes and I left the inside unstamped so I can add what I need when I need it. Let me tell ya', I have needed a few cards from my stash already and it is sooooo great to have one all ready to go when needed! Yep, building up the stash is a good idea ;-). Why didn't I do this sooner?!!

I made my note cards with Almost Amethyst as the base and used Lavender Lace and YoYo Yellow for my other colors. I used the Ex Large Fancy Flower punch and the Scallop Trim Corner punch. One of the flowers is punched in Whisper White, stamped in YoYo Yellow and then sponged around the edges with the main flower color- in the card below- Lavender Lace.

For some reason, these flowers remind me of a pansies. Maybe because pansies often have white centers with yellow in the very middle. Speaking of yellow, here is the YoYo Yellow note card...

The Scallop Trim Corner punch paired with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured embossing folder and the Ex Large Fancy Flowers, make me think of the hankies that my grandmother used to have when I was growing up. Some of them had Swiss Dots, they all had pretty crocheted borders, much like the Scallop Trim punches :-), and they all had pretty flowers embroidered on them. Do they even make hankies like that anymore? Fortunately for me, I have some of my great grandmother's hankies and they are the same. So tell me, do these little note cards remind you of the hankies that your grandmother owned :-D ?

Here is the whole lot of them, all together. I think they look kind of pretty in a group :-). That's my post for today. Hope you have a wonderful, wonderful day and that the sun is shining brightly where you live. It's going to be 78 degrees here today- oh yeah! See ya' tomorrow- thanks for stopping by!
