Stationary with Punch!

We have a friend who recently moved
to an assisted-living facility.
She is one of the dearest and most generous souls I know.
She casually mentioned in one of our conversations
that she never had envelopes when she needed them.
I thought she might enjoy some homemade stationary
to go with them.



Here's all you need to make someone a nice card or
some pretty paper for letter writing.
Yes, some folks still send letters the old-fashioned way!



This heart-n-home punch can be used on both
the top and bottom to frame the page.




This decorative sun was used in the four corners.




Mix-n-match until you find something pleasing.




There are so many different punch designs.



These were originally purchased for doing scrapbooking,
but I haven't done much of that lately.
It's great to find other purposes for things we already have.



Adding stamps and some envelopes completes the gift.

This craft took just minutes to create,
but it will give pleasure to a dear friend every time
 she puts pen to paper.
If I were Martha, here's where I'd say,
"It's a good thing."
