So sorry I am late in getting this up today - just been one of those days.
I hope you all enjoy this guest post from Lena, my awesome Covert Robin Swap partner. She is an amazing photographer and I am just in awe of her thread photos. I definitely loved my surprise package and look forward to using my awesome new notecards! Although, I may be a little stingy and keep a few for myself to decorate my sewing room...
Hi friends of Mon Petit Lyons!
My name is Lena and I blog over at Mom2MemphisAndRuby!
I am so happy to be here today to share what I made for Courtney for the Covert Robin Mystery Gift Exchange!
I was a bit nervous about signing up as a co-host since all the ladies are so wonderfully crafty & talented... and I'm, well... not.
But Rachael is a doll, and I was up for the challenge.
I was excited when I got word that I would be making something for Courtney.
But WHAT on earth would I make!?
I dabble in photography and just bought myself a new Canon... So I knew I'd like to do something with my photography. I didn't just want to print off a few photos and mail them to her... I wanted to send her something she could use.
So, I made cards.
Aha! Something cute, useful & easy enough for even ME to do!!
I live in a small town, and don't have access to any big crafty stores.
I picked up some white 8x10 card stock one day, and spent a morning break cutting them into the size I would need to fit a 4x6 print...
I used prints with a white board and mounted them with white photo corners.
I thought the white on white was classic!
I chose 10 of my newest favorite prints that could work for any number of engagements!
I kept a few for myself, and have already used them as thank you cards! They've been a big hit!
Worse case scenario, Courtney hated the cards, but loved a print or two...
she could definitely frame those as well!
I hope to see you over at Mom2MemphisAndRuby when my partner guest post with her gift!!
