I PINE For You Note Card

Ellen Hutson had this Lawn Fawn pineapple set (called “Aloha”) on sale earlier in the week. I needed a more whimsical pineapple! AND a new pun!

Happy Friday!

Floral Silhouette Paint Chip Thinking of You Note Card

The floral silhouette is cut from Curious Metallic Ink paper – there is no way to capture the color (darkest of navy) or the sparkle.

My Life Would Suck Without You Note Card

This is from a cute little set by Sunny Studio.

And all I could hear (playing in my head) while working on this card was this:

Smiling Pineapple Note Card

Who wouldn’t love a cute, smiling pineapple??

I was inspired by some smiling pineapples on the Paper Smooches blog.

The Hero Arts pineapple is not quite so whimsical, but I think she pulls of the smile quite well!
