Here's my card that I made especially for today's fun hop:


I happily combined Origami Animals and Dare to Dream!  My inks...Hero Arts Intense Black + Ombre Neon Chartreuse to Blue!  Can you see the dots on the Origami plane + boat?  That's with the Ombre on the Dot Moire Bold Prints.

The swishes of watercolor are from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi set.  

I've been having fun designing coordinating envelopes!


I love how the watercoloring and the Ombre ink match!

This card is made especially for my college girl...she's getting a bunch of happy mail this week.  She's scheduled to graduate from the University of Washington after Summer Quarter...that's one year earlier, she managed to accomplish it in 3 years...a degree in Microbiology.  My Girl♡...I'm so proud of her!!!

Now hippety hop over to the A-mazing Kelly Rasmussen's blog!

I love the paper airplane stamp and the watercolor over the sentiment!

Patt H. said...

Love this one! The clean, airy look is awesome & the stamping on the envelope is a nice touch.

Unknown said...

Oh my gosh, this is the cutest card ever! Is the paper airplane a stamp & the other one too? They look like they were cut out. This Christmas and in 2014 we got some cards from a company that wanted a donation. They had matching envelopes and I loved how they did that. I should do that for some of my cards like you did. It would be just my luck that the post office would put it through the machine and stamp over it and mess it up. You did a really nice job on your card & envelope.
Congrats on your daughter and how well she did in school. You must be so proud but then I know you are.
