I bet you are wondering if I am still alive. Sorry, it has been crazy with my sister on Spring break visiting from Texas for a week with her kids. We can thank her for the snow and cold. Come to Iowa they way and it snows with her here and it was super nice for several weeks before she came. Then, we are super busy at work opening a new business so I feel like I am in a whirl wind but hopefully it will slow down soon. The good news is the Paper Pumpkin Alternatives are almost done and can I just say WOW! This kit was amazing. I have made a ton of cards and my customers in my Pumpkin Perks club are going to be spoiled with gifts and tons of alternative ideas! This was a super fun kit and next month’s looks amazing, featuring fun bright colors and popsicles! How can you go wrong. It will feature a fun kid theme for some great cards! This would be a fun kit to make with your kids or grandkids and perfect for fun kids cards! Sign up is open now until April 9th! Don’t miss this one!
I always send thank you notes to my customers and like to keep some on hand for when I need them. This is a super easy and very fun card to make! Simple and I might say stunning! I love the colors of this card. I have a passion for dragonflies. There is just something beautiful about them and add the lady bug trinket how cute it that? I love to add texture to my cards and the Subtle 3D embossing folder is always a favorite to use. I am very sad the Stitched Shapes are retiring so if they are on your wish list be sure to order them as they are discounted and going fast! This is a thank you card going out to my customers with a note of gift for March orders of $50 or more! Be sure to place your orders so you too, will receive cards and a gift for every order! I love to spoil my customers and demonstrators too!
Don’t forget the new catalog is coming and from the sneak peak I saw exciting things are coming soon! Until them be sure to check out the retired list posted in my facebook group Paper Wishes by Melinda or comment below and I will email it to you! While I am sad some things are leaving I am very excited about what is coming. There are wonderful discounts on the retiring products and be sure to stock up on the retiring In Colors – Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, Terra-Cotta Tile, Pretty Peacock and Purple Posy. I love these colors so much! Make sure you have ink, refills and paper if you like any of these beautiful colors! They are going, going gone very soon!

Take a Dimensional and place on center of dragonfly and mount at an angle on the circle. Add a lady bug trinket using a glue dot.

Don’t forget the inside of your card cut a 5 1/4″ x 4″ Basic White and a strip of 5 1/4″ x 1/2″ strip of DSP for the bottom of the Basic White piece. Stick this down inside your card.
This is the inside of the card and be sure to add DSP to the envelope flap and stamp some dragonflies on the front of the card! I love to make my mail look happy and I am sure the mailman loves it too! How fun it is to get a beautiful piece of mail! Dress of the envelopes too and have some fun!
