It Just So Happens . .

We've been racking our brains for months now trying to figure out the perfect business card. We knew we wanted to do a stamp but who knew it would take another month trying to figure out what kind of paper to use. Well I finally decided to just buy simple business card templates from Staples and coffee stain them. . I have to say I'm very happy with the turnout.

Of course I ordered a custom stamp and the email address on it was wrong (my fault) SO I had to cut off the contact info and just use the Maggpie Header, which was fine but I was still missing the contact info (slightly important) 

WELL I just so happened to buy a stamp set from a yard sale for $.50 awhile back. So in the end I decided to make it simple; Maggpie header... website... voila ! 

Nope.. still wasn't  happy. It was definitely missing something. It needed some more substance to it.

It just so happens (naturally) that my Mom bought me this GIANT spool of lace trim _ I have to say there are thousands of yards on this thing & out of nowhere it popped into my head that this lace trim looks exactly like the doilies used on our header for our website _ what are the odds.

So after we coffee stained the lace & added it to the card I was completely satisfied . . 

It just so happens that when you stop trying/thinking so hard _ you find the answer
