Presenting Dawnygirl

I found a new sweet Etsy Shop! I couldn't resist treating myself to a little giftie which came in the mail extra super fast:

I love opening packages....

Look how cute the packaging is on the inside, with the pinked edges on the bright blue tissue paper and cute lil' sticker:

The tag was a sweet touch:

It's a coin purse made by DawnyGirl! Check out the sweet lining:


My next favorite thing is this oilcloth wallet, equally perfect for a guy or a girl:

New Wine Drinking Card!

I have a new card!

I think it's been more than a year since I've created a new one, so I'm terribly excited about this one!

The thing that broke me out of my huge rut was a challenge issued by my Etsy Greetings Team! This is a terrific, supportive group of cardmakers who sell on Etsy. I've been a part of this group for years now and find all the tips and our active discussion groups highly inspiring.

Our organizer created this terrific challenge for us to share. We all purchased the same digital paper pack (after voting for our favorite from a whole slew of would-be candidates). The paper pack is called The Lake by KatiesWish. It had just a yummy selection of digital papers from which to choose.

The pack looks like this:

I selected the wavy background but I'm also in love with the three on the right....

Anyway, right now, all the other participating team mates are busy designing their cards -- it's so fun and exciting to see what different ideas people come up with when they have the same basic materials. Later this month, we'll feature all of them on our team blog and run a special promotion... more to come!
