This has been the most interesting, busiest week... at least for me, someone who doesn't get so busy very often. That is the beauty of being a stay-at-home wife. I get a lot of coffee time, craft time, and ME time, which I thank God and my husband, John for every single day. However there are weeks like this week, where I am like the energizer bunny... I cannot stop even if I wanted to but that was yesterday. Things have slowed down since I woke up this morning, and for that I AM SO GRATEFUL!
I had a good morning, baked and made a black forest cake for Grandpa's birthday like I planned. While I was finishing up the cake the sweetest guy ever calls me to tell me he loves me and he wanted to hear my voice... and the rest is history. ;-)
Well, not really. Shortly after I finished cleaning up the mess I made in the kitchen, I got started on a card. I didn't need a sketch for this one, it's a simple A2 card. I am loving Papertrey Ink's Vintage Cream and Dark Chocolate cardstocks! I love the quality and the thickness. It holds up to heat embossing and it is awesome with dry embossing too. I used American Crafts' Glee stamp set for the tree and heart and TPC Studio's Greetings stamp set for the sentiment.
I made a bunch of the same card since 'thinking of you' cards are like happy birthday cards, you can't just make one of them because there's always a birthday... and there is always someone needing to know that they are being thought of or prayed for.
