Super Congratulations Card

I love everything about this cute congratulations card — from the sunny yellow and cool gray to the playful retro font:

As much as I love the yellow, it also comes in a cool pool blue version:

Both available via Richie Design.  Perfect for keeping on hand for the next time you want to tell someone just how happy and/or proud you are for them.

Calligraphy Wedding Vows

In honor of Valentine's Day yesterday, I thought I'd start the week off with a sweetly romantic gift from a husband to his wife — a beautiful keepsake of their wedding vows created by calligrapher Elecia Fogg of Dancing Pen:

Elecia created this beautiful keepsake with white ink for the text and a couple of gold nautical-inspired illustrations on deep ocean blue paper to fit with the nautical theme of the wedding and the vows themselves.  Such a beautiful result!

{happy weekend!}

Happy Friday everyone!  For what feels like the first time in weeks, the sun is shining and I'm wishing for above-freezing temperatures to help melt away some of these massive piles of snow – and of course still dreaming about spring.  I know this is a three-day weekend for many of you (at least those of you here in the U.S.), but before you go running off…

…a few links from the week:

I think that's it for this week!  I hope you all have a lovely weekend (and lovely valentine's day for those of you participating), and I'll see you all again on Monday!

Primele Calligraphy

With all the snow on the East Coast over the past few days, it’s been a pretty rough week.  So I thought I’d help smooth the transition to the weekend with some lovely calligraphy from the ladies of Primele!

The images above are of the two new invitation suites that Primele created for Bella FiguraBalsam and String.  So pretty!

I know some people consider them to be more trouble than they’re worth, but I will never tire of seeing mix-and-match vintage stamps on wedding invitation envelopes.  And the white ink on black envelopes is such a lovely twist on a classic black and white palette.  For more beautiful calligraphy, definitely check out the Primele etsy shop and blog.
