Quick Post

Happy Monday All! I started this post like 3 days ago, but kept on forgetting to write down the type of paper I used!

Anyhoo, I put this card together for our pastor. I usually try to keep it in Spanish as our Pastor is from El Salvador, but time constraints (i.e. I whipped this up in about 15 minutes) dictated that I just grabbed my go-to guy birthday stamp (which is in English - I need to find some Spanish stamps, has anyone seen them sold anywhere?).

Paper: Recollections cream card, Recollections 8x11 plain card stock, the polka dot patterned paper is from a new pack from My Mind's Eye Lime Twist collection (I found it for 1.99 in TJMaxx... as they are usually 6 dollars, I also picked up one another pack that was 3 dollars.), The orange retro looking paper came from a Cosmo Cricket pack of paper, but I can't remember the name of it.
Sentiment: I have had it so long, I don't even remember.... I bought it before I started writing the names down on the actual stamp clear plastic backing
Embellishments: Orange buttons from Michaels dollar aisle, ribbon from a friend

I was worried that it looked a little juvenile, but I didn't have any time to make another one, so I hope that he liked it!

Hope that everyone is getting back into the swing of the school year! PS - They have pumpkin lattes back in Dunkin' Donuts.... Still waiting for the return of Starbucks and in Green Mountain k-cups.....I foresee another purchase of the 80 count pack when they are back in stock for the season!


  1. The card turned out nicely.

    I saw the sign at Dunkin Donuts about the Pumpkin being back...not sure I've ever had one or if I'd like it...guess I'll consider trying one...but I don't like things too sweet.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I've never tried Dunkin Donuts before but I really like Starbucks. It is a little sweet. I had a co-worker that had just the pumpkin coffee today with no sweetener and she said that was pretty good and she doesn't like sweet drinks either.

    Hope that you have a great weekend!
