{happy weekend!}

Happy Friday everyone!  Next week I’ll be taking a little blog break, but I have two of my favorite bloggers filling in with some fabulous guest posts – Jane from Ill Seen, Ill Said and Kate from Wit + Delight!  You’ll have to wait until next week to see what they have planned for you, but I know you’re going to love it all!  But in the meantime…

…a few links for your weekend:

Floral Heart Art Print

Here I go again with my sudden fascination with all things heart-shaped.  But I’m seriously smitten with this floral heart block print from onecanoetwo.  So pretty!

Shabby Chic Linen Save the Dates

I’m a big fan of invitations that involve fabric, so I was thrilled when Valentina from CUTandPASTE sent over these linen Shabby Chic-inspired save the dates that she designed for a wedding later this spring.

From ValentinaThe couple desired something with a vintage-shabby style so I’ve created this multi-layered, crafty, and natural save the date composed by a small tag with their monogram, a custom hand-stamped linen fabric, and a warm white save the date enclosure – all sewed together.  The warm white and light brown color palette represents the couple’s soft and gentle style.

So lovely!  Thank you so much Valentina!

Bear Hug Will You Be My Bridesmaid Cards

Kathryn from Blackbird Letterpress let me know about the incredibly sweet way that one of her customers asked her friends to be bridesmaids in her upcoming wedding.  Meryl used Kathryn’s Grizzly Bear Hug die cut cards, inserted some photobooth photos that she’d taken with friends over the years, and a tiny banner containing the relevant question.

Meryl reports that she received many hugs and yeses in return.  Yay!
