Okay, and here is the second type of card I made. I got the idea for this one from stationary I saw at minted.com (LOVE that place). It took about two seconds to make. I die cut the letters out of a post-it note using PTI's uppercase script alphabet dies, masked a strip on the cardstock, mixed a few watercolors together to get the shades I wanted, and painted. And that's it.

PTI February Blog Hop: Monograms
last time my son and I did it together, so we pulled them out again this morning and I made another stationary set for PTI's February Blog Hop. Really it takes three minutes tops to make one card (less once you have the colors you want mixed), so it takes practically no time at all to make a set. I watercolored stripes on a paper, die cut the oval out with PTI's 2 1/4" Oval Dies, and finally die cut the "J" from PTI's Script Alphabet dies. I kind of love stationary because you can't do too much or their won't be room to write. The simplicity makes me happy.
