Did you know that the dragon fruit, or Pitaya, is indigenous to the Americas? It's the fruit of a cactus and can range in color from red or yellow skinned with a white fleshy inside, or red throughout. It's tart, with crunchy the little black seeds that sort of remind me of a kiwi, but smaller. I've only had dragon fruit a few times, and was quite excited to see such an 'exotic' fruit included in the Tutti Frutti designer series paper. I'm glad they choose to use these cute little cross-sections, because the fruit itself is a bit scary for my crafting taste!
The Tutti Frutti designer series paper lends itself well to Sweet & Simple Cards, where the paper is the focal point. In this case, just a small banner with a simple 'hello' is really all you need to send a note to brighten someone's day!
Speaking of making someone's day, look at this happy mail I got yesterday from my mentor, Ronda Wade. I've been a part of Ronda's Creating Success Training Program for 3 years, and her teaching, advice, and support have been an invaluable part of my success at Stampin' Up!
These little magnets are so cute! I immediately put them on my craft board as a daily reminder that it's not just about paper and ink, it's about Stampin' Up!'s Statement of the Heart: "To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments ... in this we make a difference."
