This post could also have been titled: Best laid plans of mice and mailmen.
Another of our Wacky Watercooler participants Patti Leeke who is short on a blog (blogless) but long on talent is being featured today. For our New Catalog(ue) hop she popped this lovely confection in the mail to your's truly for inclusion in the hop....that's where the mailmen and the mice for all I know come in. The hop was close to a month ago but the card just arrived 5 days ago! Patti mailed it in plenty of time but...as I say...mice and mailmen intervened. Don't you wish mail had minicams on it so you could find out the "rest of the story"?
Patti's Trefoil Cross in Baked Brown Sugar and Very Vanilla
Lovely isn't it? A perfect blend of image and sentiment for a difficult type of card to have to craft and send. In person it's a rich and luscious mix of Very Vanilla and our newest In Color - Baked Brown Sugar. Given the names you just expect those two to mix well together don't you? :D One of my favorite things about the Trefoil Cross image is that it is a single stamp! Lots of presence with very little cost. And as you can see, by Patti's inclusion of the new Beautifully Barogque embossing folder in the background, it also coordinates very well with our Mosaic & Baroque design collections.
