Valentine’s Day Cards – Smock

I'll be starting my full Valentine's Day card round-ups tomorrow, but I just wanted to let everyone know that tomorrow and Thursday (January 20-21) Smock is donating 100% of the sales from its website (excluding custom printing) to Doctors Without Borders to help support the relief efforts in Haiti.  So if you were thinking about stocking up on birthday cards, thank you cards, wrapping paper, or holiday cards for next Christmas, now's your chance!  I'm also including one of Smock's Valentine's Day designs below, and you can check out the rest here.

Wedding Invitations — Anemone Letterpress

I’m a huge, huge fan of the lovely letterpress work of Anemone Letterpress, so I was just about jumping up and down when I saw that Anemone Letterpress had released a wedding line!  Carrie from Anemone Letterpress has been gradually sharing each design on her blog, but was kind enough to send over a bunch of photos so that you could see the full line all at once!  So let’s get started…
