Green LEGO Birthday Note Card

Offspring3 needed a small birthday card for a little boy turning 4. I dug through my paper stash, and found a scrap of green LEGO paper that was large enough for a note card. The LEGO paper is textured – the dots are raised, and the brick edges are debossed.

I really need to see if I can find more of this paper! (off to the Google machine I go!)

Stowaway Cards

Offspring3 went to Spain for 5 weeks this summer for a study abroad program.

#missedher

Of course I stashed some cards in her suitcase. For the times that Skype and Facebook messaging were not quite tactile enough.

Most of the cards contain an image or paper that she has gifted me.
