Make it from the Heart Monday on a Tuesday.

I know I'm a day late, but I still wanted to share an invitation I made for my for a shower at my church for our pastor and wife. The finished size was about 12x9 or so and I used some of the Dream Pop paper. Yes, I love to hoard my paper, thinking that Close To My Heart will not make more pretty paper. BUT then I have a new favorite. I need to learn to use what I love and there will be more.

In todays world I only needed to make one invitation, copier and scanner made my job much easier.


Now you don't miss "Free To Be Me" paper pack, you only have until May 31st to get this wonderful paper pack and then it will be gone.
