Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. It was so wonderful and touching to read all your comments yesterday! Thank you for sharing them with me, they were a blessing to my day!
My gratitude for today is quiet evenings at home, after the little man has gone to bed. Right now I am sitting on the couch, next to my hubby, enjoying our favorite TV shows. Our big, fat cat is sitting with us too. Its good. Its happy. Its my wonderful life. Said with a happy, contented sigh and smile.
The card for today is a little experiment. The results were cool, but I think I would change things up the next time. I wanted the text to show through the flowers, but this might be a little too sharp a contrast. I will try another one and see if that matches my idea. :)
I started by stamping Friend Definition on a piece of white cardstock. Then, using a Versamark Watermark pen, I “colored” in Delicate Blossoms and heat embossed them with Clear Detail powder. After that, I covered the cardstock with Dusty Concord Distressing Ink. The purple was a little too, well, McDonalds Grimace-y for me, so I toned it down with Walnut Distressing Ink.
This side of the card got a piece of self-adhesive lace, in the cream color. Love this stuff! If you haven’t seen it, the package comes with 5 pieces of lace, with adhesive on the back. Its easy to trim to size and to just plain use.
Be sure and share your gratitude for today in the comments section of this post, so your name can be entered in the drawing at the end of the month. Feel free to comment everyday, I encourage it!
