wednesday tidbits


happy wednesday all! i’m in the midst of designing this year’s holiday cards! yup – i know it’s only the first of september but one must be prepared!! i love the holidays and i’m so excited to start some new designs for 2010! here’s a little inspiration i’m having lately…

one cannot go through the holiday without looking at anthropologie’s window displays. they are sheer heaven and i envy the person who has that job!

i’m loving these vintage ideas as well…

and last but not least, how can one forget the j.crew holiday catalog!

i’m hoping to get my cards done by the end of the month and up on the website, as well as here!! don’t forget to take a family photo in time for your holiday card!!

how darling are these vintage tickets? this would be such a great idea to use at a wedding reception – maybe use them everytime you go into the photo booth? it would also be cute to custom design it with the bride & groom’s initials on it and date of their wedding!

happy wednesday to you all! today i thought i’d post on my custom stationery! when i get some extra time, i’m going to put these up on etsy! do you all have any ideas on things you would like to see on a note card? here are a couple that i’ve done in the past.

custom thank you cards…i really like how “old world” this looks and it makes me want to go to paris! i love the color combo of gray + hot pink as well.

one thing that really inspires me are vintage hot air balloons. these are a fun + clever note card to have for yourself or to give to your friend for their birthday! wink wink…

we do custom orders and can make anything your heart desires! email cari@mpresscards.com with your idea today!

happy wednesday to you all! i have some new graduation announcements and invitations to debut to you today! keep in mind – these are all front and back!

if you want custom graduation announcements, email me: cari@mpresscards.com

today i thought i would talk about dogs. i love dogs. i have a 3 1/2 year old chocolate labrador named  finley and she is the most loving dog any girl could ever ask for and i’m so blessed she’s in my life. here are some fun dog links for the day.


i am a sucker for really cute collars. finley is now on her 4th bella bean couture collar. in my opinion, they are the most unique collars i’ve ever seen. bella bean also makes leashes, beds and clothes!

my friend kendall showed me this site when she ordered her boxer, tank, a collar from them. first of all, the website is designed so lovely, i automatically loved it. i really like this leash. maybe fin needs one for her birthday!

what fun pet accessories do you have?


this is my second year in a row doing the print for the junior league of norman‘s charity ball. this year was so much fun. the theme is casino royale, so i really got to be creative! my inspiration came from the james bond movie, believe it or not, casino royale!

this was such a fun and unique project to work on! i can’t wait to see the entire suite assembled!  

i designed these for my good friend ashley who is hosting a bachelorette party in san fran. it was fun incorporating the skyline in the design as well as all their weekend events! sounds like a great trip girls!
