CTMH Cherish This Day Card
Hello! Hello! This summer has been a whirlwind for me. Besides the craziness of having the kids home and "flying by the seat of our pants" per se, I have hit a burnout, too. Not the best combination :).
Yesterday, I finally was able to sit down and do some papercrafting. I was reminded how therapeutic creating is for me. As I sat at my desk creating and listening to classical music on Pandora, I felt peace and calm. Now, if I can only remember that I need that daily, I will be much better :).
I have been sewing a lot lately. My Princess is getting an American Girl Doll for her birthday tomorrow, and being me, I am not going to pay for the brand name clothing with the exorbitant price tags. I will have to post pics of those creations soon.
I have a special card group today, and this is one of the cards we will be making. I had to simplify my usual style for the group I will be doing this with. I like the way it turned out; however, when I look at it, it screams "Valentine's"! This card is actually intended for a wedding or anniversary card. Oh well! I think it will be fun to create with the group.
Here are the ingredients I used:
CTMH white card base and envelope
CTMH White Daisy card stock
CTMH Heartstrings paper pack
CTMH stripes embossing folder
CTMH Bitty Sparkles
CTMH silver trim (sticky back)
CTMH 3D foam tape
CTMH dye inks: cranberry, black, smoothie and pixie
CTMH Finding the Words Stamp Set
CTMH Love Struck (?) Stamp Set. I am not by my stamps to double check. This stamp set is in the Seasonal Expressions 1 (2015) supplement. It is the Valentine's set with the sentiment "Love Struck" in a frame.
CTMH bonding glue pen.
Thank you for stopping! As always, if you have any questions, just let me know :). -Dari
