I'm hoping when my little niece goes home to England in a few weeks, that she'll keep in touch via the mail. She and her brother stayed with us for two weeks recently and I really fell in love with them both. You really need to co-habituate to really get to know somebody. It's the first time we've done that. Hoping it won't be the last.
To encourage her to write, I made her a note set. 5 cards in turquoise, light grey, and yellow. Simply Stationary and Mat Stack 1 and Mat Stack Layerz used here on the belly band of a clear card box.
Sweet silhouette of a girl was downloaded from the Silhouette website. Recognize it? It is also a stamp by Hero Arts. I really like the look of cutting it out of diagonal paper (Echo Park). Makes it just slightly edgy. I cut it to fit inside the new Mega Mat Stack 1 by Papertrey Ink.
Sentiments are from Dawn's Hello, Friend set. The sentiments in this set speak to me as they are things I would normally want to say, so I'm thrilled that they are in stamp form. Felt they would really well for a eight year old girl. Sort of sassy and sweet.
