Thinking outside the box....

Actually, I've been thinking outside the SEASON!
 
We've all been barraged with fall and Christmas holiday projects and decorations for months now,
so I decided to approach things a bit differently.
 
As I flipped through my terrific collection of papers stacks from
DCWV,
I immediately saw what was obviously the perfect "non-traditional" Valentine's Day blue papers with these adorable little cross-stitched hearts on them!
Whee!  What a great way to head into February.
Makes Spring feel closer already!
 
 
This stack is "Arctic Wishes"  and, sure, it has all of the winter features one would expect.
But it also has all of this wonderful stitching!
 
 
 
I thought it would be so great to go unexpected and make ths card for some friends of mine who are celebrating their 5th anniversary this next month!
 
These papers aren't ONLY for Winter.  The patterns and colors work for so many other situations.
 
I hope they like their card and have many more to enjoy!
Never judge a paper stack by it's given name...look past the obvious and you will often find a hidden gem.
(PS I love that little sewing machine...cute!)
 
Let's see how many non-holiday cards you can make out of these papers!

I'm looking at the variety of these stacks, and I'm seeing all sorts of party candy boxes and gift tags for various celebrations.
Party on!
