The Gift of a Letter Inspiration


I recently read a wonderful post on Susan Branch's blog about the art of writing a letter.

It reminded me of love letters and letters to my friends when I was living abroad.  I wrote a post a while back about one of my favorite movies "Letters to Juliet."





Her post inspired me so much, that I put on the music from the Letters to Juliet soundtrack.  That music is playing now.

Inspiration came flooding through the music and I was inspired to create a gift for you.




Here is some stationery for you to download.


It's called Happiness Hydrangea stationery.  They Hydrangea painting is from one I did for a friend.

I created a second page with a little Hydrangea stamp in the corner. I called this file Hydrangea Happiness page 2.  Just click on the links and it will bring you to the preview before you download.

Bev from How Sweet The Sound, is hosting Pink Saturday, and if you love the color pink, like I do, you should stop by and visit her blog.

Bev posts her Pink Saturday links at three o'clock today and leaves them up for the weekend.



Lovely Resources:
In case you were wondering where I found these lovely background papers, I found them on Etsy.  Sonya De Hart Designs lets you use her papers in your designs.  I love her work.  I just bought her digital alphabet for some baby shower decorations that I am working on.

My ribbons are from Stamp'n Up, My digital Studio.  I have always loved Stamp'n Up for Scrapbook Inspiration, and now they have so many lovely digital scrapbook elements.

If you love Hydrangeas like I do, I have created a number of things using my painting, including an iPhone case.  They can all be found on my shop. Free Shipping is being offered until Sunday.

Like always, a soothing and peaceful expression of only the good things in our lives, sweet Karen.

Thank you for your beautiful message today. So many hard working individuals feel the pain of a disappointment on their part, even though they may have received countless thank-yous. But out of the mouth of babes comes truth, and in the end, if good memories were made, then we have done our job in the sight of God. I have made my mistakes, but I can say that I have also made some good calls. Thank God ONLY for that!!!!! BIG HUGS, Anita

I was pleased I chose you to visit this Pink Saturday (don't have time to visit everyone)...you have a lovely blog Karen and I enjoyed browsing your posts.

Finding Neverland is one of my alltime favourite movies (bought the DVD), along with Ladies in Lavender (check it out when you get the chance, the soundtrack is wonderful).

Hope you're having a wonderful Saturday.

Hi Karen. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I am returning the favour! Just love the paper and will try and see if I can download it. I am new to all of this and am not sure how to do the links etc. I love hydrangeas too and have all sorts of colours in my garden. They are one of the plants which withstand the wind etc here. I think I will be one of your latest followers! Blessings. Joan
