I loooove the giraffe thank-you notes!

angeltreats said...

Oh dear, being first in the comments probably isn't lucky! But anyway I love all their products and can't pick a favourite. One thing I love is this beautiful invitation, with the beautiful Spencerian script.

It almost makes me wish I wasn't already married so I could have these as my invitations!

I love the derby print. The site has fantastic designs!

LallaLydia said...

That was hard to choose, they have such a wonderful selection - but I really like the butterfly "greetings" card.

cb said...

Love the April Note Card... anything with Umbrellas fit's perfectly with the life of a Seattle-ite girl :)

EatMeat said...

my first love shock was the giraffe, and then the old-school-revamped reindeer motif snuck up on me. i love them both, but i suppose the giraffe stationary would get more use out of me since it's not seasonal. heart-fluttering.

I think ALL of Smock Paper's wrap is amazing!

I love umbrellas, and was immediately drawn to the "april" invitations, how cute!

Letter-pressed anything is divine. I envision using the Ellie petite party invites for my Indian henna party. Biodegradable envelopes also tickle my fancy! Hopefully ppl will want to use the dbl-sided gift wrap for my gifts so I can carefully peel the presents and save the wrapping like my mama did!
