Make a Wish

I was so pleased to find Bella Luna Design at Etsy. Many of her pieces feature wonderful lampwork beads, and all have a smart, modern elegance. These earrings are a great match for our 'make a wish' card. The combo would make a lovely birthday gift for a truly unique and creative friend.

little bit funky

little bit funky is a shop of pure delights. The tag line to this shop is "you're precious to someone." How true. Among a collection of wonderful paper goods (including a card sale going on now), is this fun little category called This, That and Whatnots. I couldn't resist these sweet little hair clips to pair with our blue ribbon gift tags. Hope you enjoy them both!

Luscious Red

How could I resist someone called The Charm Lady? When I contacted her to see if I could feature her pretty little pendant, I found that she indeed fit her shop name. And with this sweet little lovely amidst many more delightful designs, you're sure to enjoy her shop. Paired with our red "texture" card, this card and gift pairing couldn't be easier.
