You are precious to me

Good afternoon,
 I was fortunate enough to find Patti's blog, Stationary Styles a couple days ago when she left me a comment. Scrolling through her blog helped to get the creative juices flowing again. After laying eyes on this beautiful CAS card, I was inspired to get out my CTMH "Honeycomb" set and play. Essentially, I CASE'd her card - so thanks Patti! I can see so many possibilities with just one stamp set and a few colour changes! This is the first one I made. I will share a few others in a later post. I love how the design is simple yet it has texture because of the variety of patterns in the stamps.

I was also inspired recently by the mail art being shared over at The Letter Writer's Alliance and decided that when time allows, I should put more effort into my envelopes. Scrolling through Donovan's Instagram feed got me really excited about envelopes again - good thing I have my handy Stampin' Up envelope maker! Mine is pretty basic compared with the fun stuff she has been making, but I do like how it turned out. I dare say it is a good way to use up stash!

Last but not least, here is the inside. I decided to make it a Dad's day card.

 Hope you are having a fabulous weekend and a fabulous May long for those who are celebrating! Thanks for visiting!
