Pretty little cards

I love One Pretty Thing's collections of inspirational links, and I like the idea of one pretty thing. The idea just got stuck in my head. I like doing little pretty things for my family and loved ones, and one of my favorites is little cards that are unexpected. I have an "I love you" note stuck to my monitor that my daughter left on my keyboard one day.
So with those two thoughts in mind, I made up a template for an atc sized envelope and card, then I had to decorate them.
Science is always inspiring to me. My husband and I watch Nova and Nova Science Now pretty regularly, we read science magazines and physics books together. So using a quote from Carl Sagan seemed like a natural to me for this project, but I included a blank card and a completely blank template. I hope you like them.
As usual, click on the images for the full sized version.

  1. Aww, thanks so much for the mention! It's so funny, your idea of doing one pretty thing is so much closer to what my blog was when I first made it.

    My original idea was to write a simple tutorial each day, one pretty, creative thing to do each day, along with links to other bloggers who had done their own versions. One pretty thing each day, lots of creative interpretations. As I started looking at the other blogs, I realized craft bloggers could really benefit from one daily project aggregator and bam, off I went. =)

    I still try to do one pretty thing each day. Today I brought in a jar of sweet peas. Yesterday I drew a lipstick heart on my mirror. I love your card idea. It's so fun to thinking of things like this, and it doesn't take long to become habit. Hmm. Maybe I should document my daily pretty things and post them in Flickr...
