felt with the heart…

Good morning!

I’m a big fan of Taylored Expressions, so when I received an invite to participate in the Blast from the Past blog hop. Not a chance I’d say, no! The problem was deciding which set I’d get inky. From the first use, Discover Your Wings has been a go-to set when I needed something fast and fabulous.  I love the large silhouette blossoms, and I’ve been happy with both my bright and happycards, as well as my more subtle sympathy cards.

Last night I needed fast and fun cards for teachers. I think these will work.

Here is another card that I created a few weeks ago with this same set with a softer, more serene look.

I’m off to see the ‘living Missouri museum’ in a few minutes at my oldest daughter’s school. My daughter is acting as Walt Disney this morning. Her BFF as Laura Ingalls Wilder. The girls were so excited this morning with their costumes in tow. It should be a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to seeing all of the show-me-state legacies.

Before I run to the school, I’ll be checking out cards from my fellow hoppers. Your next stop on the hop is the incredible Taylored Expressions’ artist:
