Control Freaks Swap

This was my contribution to the Control Freaks Occasions Catalog swap.  I love swapping with those gals!  I chose to highlight the Perfect Pennants stamp set.

Cardstock: Coastal Cabana, Tangerine Tango, Very Vanilla, Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper
Stamp Sets:  Perfect Pennants
Accessories:  Banners Framelits Dies, Large Scallop Framelit, Stripes Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Small Heart Punch, Gold Sequin Trim, Gold Baker's Twine
I'm so glad to be back home and moving forward.  Thank you, thank you  to the many friends who left comments, sent e-mails and mailed cards.  I'm telling you, after two back to back funerals, I can attest first hand to the receiving end of a card, being handmade or not!  There is nothing like getting something tangible in your hand to read and re-read.  I love social media...but one of my New Year's resolutions is to send more cards. 

Cards and flowers are wonderful...but this was pretty dang popular at my house! *Ü*

  1. Even though I do not know you personally I do enjoy your blog and I wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your losses.
    When someone becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure! Sending hugs and prayers from Seattle. Susan N.

  2. Wow! How rich your life must be to have flower and food-giving friends like that!

  3. It is wonderful to see you back : ) Your cards are great! I love the sentiment... so true!

  4. I'm just now reading your blog and hearing about both your dad and then your mom passing away. I am very sorry for your losses and know how deep they really are. May you know equally deep joy in this coming year. Your stamp creations are just beautiful and I agree with how important it is for us to actually mail the cards we make. ;) God bless.

  5. YAY! Gifts good for different senses! Visual AND Tasty! So sorry about your mama, Becky, it's hard to imagine losing BOTH parents in a short amount of time. {hugs!}
    Love your CF swap, so blessed to get to swap with you regularly!!! What a great card to showcase many new products! :)
