A Quick Gift and an Add-on

Happy Mother’s Day!!  I thought I’d do a quick post today to show you a quick gift that I made for my daughter; it’s a framed piece that she can hang in her workspace.  Have you all heard about Pinterest?  Well, just as we all collect things – paper, embellishment, stamps, ribbon and so on, some of us collect pictures of things.  I collect them for inspiration, for goals, to dream and just because it feels good.  There is a site out there for doing just that.  As I’m wandering over the internet, as I see something I want to reference later I simply click on it to pin it and it goes in a little library of pictures that belong to me although others can see them.  This Love Letter to the World is something I came across on Pinterest and it was a free download so I thought it would make a sweet hybrid gift – you can find it HERE. I simply printed it out on my color printer and matted it with cardstock and design paper from The Girls Paperie and punched a background frame using an EK Success border punch.  She made me promise not to put a flower or bow on it, lol!!

Pssst . . . if you like Pinterest and want to create your own library or follow mine or other designers out there, you can request an invite at www.pinterest.com.  A word of warning – it’s addicting!!

Oh, and this is a small add-on to the Girls Paperie Blog Candy.  The winner will be posted tomorrow night :-)  Be sure to go —–>HERE<—– to leave a comment

Stamps: None
Paper: The Girls Paperie, The Paper Studio, Coredinations
Ink: None
Accessories: EK Success Border Punch

Be sweet and enjoy your day!

    Thank you for the poem and your card is just lovely. And thank you also for explaining what Pinterest is. I kept seeing it all over the place but had no idea what it was.

    Happy Mother’s Day!
    Have to confess I am already an addicted image collector. Started when I first began to make cards, about 5 years ago now! You can imagine that I have a computer with a lot of disk space but I can always use more!! Will certainly have a look at Pinterest. Thank you for the link.
    Hope you all have a lovely mother’s day.ReplyCancel

    Hope everyone had a pleasant Mother’s Day today! The love letter is a very nice gift for your daughter, she’ll be reminded of her Mom every time she looks at it. I’ve had to keep myself from the Pinterest site as I’m already on the computer too much. I’m a saver of many things from the internet that relates to pretty papers, crafts, crochet, sewing, geneaology, nostalgia, old dishes, quotes, how to’s, weddings, rubber stamping, spencerian script and so on.. If I start saving things to Pinterest they may run out of space. lol…ReplyCancel

    What a wonderful framed gift for your dear daughter.. I’ve not heard of Pinterest before and after reading that you said it was addictive …I’m wondering should I go there as OH already says he’s a Computer widower!
    Lol! Now can I resist?…ermmm..No!!
    Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

    Love Sheila xxReplyCancel
