A Smile for Neil | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

This week’s Teapot Party is being held in honor of the uncle of one of our very own as he enters the final chapter of his bright life. Neil needs a little cheer, and I was excited for the chance to send some his way.

Lisa told us he was a longtime fireman, with a particular fondness for softball and buffalo. But I had nothing in my collection of stamps or paper that fit that, so I decided to go with a simple fall theme and instead feature a tag for this take-themed Teapot Party.

Home to Roost Cozy Style – Two Ways | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Happy Friday, world! I’m not sure where you’re joining me from today, but I can bet (or at least hope!) that at some point in your life you’ve had the privilige of hearing a rooster crow in the morning with your own ears. Truly, it’s delightful! I wanted to bring some of those warm, fuzzy, cozy-good feelings to the design of this pair of cards.

Three-Fer Soft Leaves | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Last weekend I received the news that sadly, my childhood neighbor had passed away after a battle with COVID-19. Four in his family (including him), had been diagnosed with it, and two had been hospitalized. He had been released from the initial hospital stay, but had to return. Folks, I don’t need this reminder, but perhaps you do – this pandemic is serious business. Please stay home as much as possible, wear a mask when you can’t avoid going out, keep your distance, and wash your hands! I’m praying for you all.

That said, though I had a small stash of sympathy cards at the ready, I wanted to make something special just for this special family.
