Thanks a Melon




Hello friends, : )

I am popping in for a QUICK post because I'm in the throws of scarf making for neckStyles™ and getting ready for a new release and BIG sale! : ) If you like scarves I invite you to visit our Etsy shop.  My BFF and I have HUNDREDS of pretty scarves and - starting tomorrow we are having a "Buy Three get one FREE" sale!! Our customers really love this sale (If you mention that you found neckStyles™ from my blog we will refund all or part of your shipping costs.  FREE shipping for US customers, $5.00 flat rate for Canada and $10.00 flat rate for International customers : ) Sale only lasts until 10/21/14.)  I hope you'll come see what I do when I'm not playing with paper : )

 This little card was easy pesy to make but not so easy to photograph!  I cut a circle on the card face and then framed the hole opening with a scallop die cut.  I placed my little melon on the inside of the card - popped up with some foam tape. : )



I hope you are having a wonderful day doing something creative! See you again soon.

Patti

Supplies:

White cs by PTI
Melon from the Fruit Fusion: Melon Stamp Set and coordinating die from PTI
Sentiment from the same PTI stamp set

Little ribbon from my stash

Thanks Patti for letting us know about your sale on your scarves. They are like a favorite pair of boots: fashionable, comfortable and makes us feel wonderful. I like that your scarves are easy to wear. Kinda like your card was easy to make! I know I only have a few but after seeing them during the cranberry fest, I want more! Thanks for the kind words too. You know we love you! Oma:)
