Mustaches and something different

When I saw the Many Mustaches ala carte stamp in the new catalog...knew I had to get it!  Nothing is quite as much fun as a mustache on a stick!  Friends of a friend recently lost their home to a devastating fire, and I wanted to send the family (mom/dad and three sons) a card of encouragement.  Then I thought...maybe they could use a little fun and silliness???  So I cased the card in the new catalog and voila!

Sorry for the poor pictures!  I  kept the card pretty simple and will write a note inside explaining just what these are!  Hopefully they will have a little fun with them!  I tried to persuade my dog to model one but he would not go for it.

And if that is not different enough, I attended a retreat last Saturday held by a friend of my sister's and wanted to bring something a little different as a crafty gift.  She has been the recipient of many of my paper crafts so I thought a little something for her and her guests would be fun.  I painted river rocks with acrylic paint and used a paint pen to write different inspirational words on them.  I had the paint and the pens, and the rocks were only $1 a bag at Michaels!  This bowl has two bags of rocks.  

Hope all is well in your part of the world!


  1. I simply adore your mustache cards!!! so much fun!
    and what a clever idea with the painted rocks.

    hope you are having a great week. :)

  2. Those cards look like they would be a lot of fun. And the rocks - great inspiration. They are really pretty.

  3. What fun, Lauri! Your rocks rock!

  4. Hi Lauri!

    First of all, your mustache cards made me smile! I LOVE that stamp. It is already on my next order, for sure. Those rocks are awesome, too! What a great idea! The bright colors are first I thought they were cookies. Haha! Can you tell I have baked goods on the mind? I have to try this idea out. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Hugs! :)

  5. Both the cards and rocks are both such thoughtful gifts. How tragic to lose your house to fire. I can't even imagine bouncing back from that. What a sweet way to let them know you care. Hope you are well! Best, Curt


Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
