Thank-you's. Done.

Nothing all that imaginative. But they are done. And in the mail. 


I made some 'confetti' to go inside the card (my inspiration came from yesterday's post). I printed the words in columns on white card stock and cut them with my paper cutter. It went really fast.


I took the card I made this Christmas and changed the colors, the font and the writing. I used the font 2peas old type.


One of the thank-you's went to a dear friend of mine who brought me over a little gift for my birthday the other day ...


A little ceramic vase - made by a friend of hers (love!) - and filled with a lovely purple hydrangea.


She was going to fill it with white sweet peas because she knows I love them so much and they smell a.m.a.z.i.n.g.


But the ones she ordered came with really long stems and she couldn't bear to cut them down.


I am glad she didn't. Aren't they gorgeous. You should smell them!


They are the perfect accessory for my living room right now. Especially on this cold and rainy day!
I am joining Annie and linking up with Jane who writes a lovely blog called, Small but Charming. She is having a little flower party.

Those sweet peas are most probably from Japan. The Japanese have entered the world of floral culture in the most exquisite way and you have displayed them perfectly!

What a lovely surprise you were to wake up to today!

Yes those sweet peas are ethereal and even with a lingering cold I can almost smell them.

Thanks so much for joining in.

Hope to see you next month:)

It's gorgeous your card! I think when you make your own, it has a special meaning...
When I sew my pillow and I have them in my living room & bedroom, they feel special....
Great job!

Beautiful flowers, and what a great idea to make confetti like that! Love that it's not the kind that goes all over the floor :)
