I was asked to do purple thank you cards and this was what I came up with!
The patterened paper is from my stash, purple cardstock - corner punch - and eyelet is Stampin' Up!, stamp is Stampendous, and the base is Georgia Pacific. The details are the same for the next card also!
Sunday is a day filled with church for me. I lots of time do nursery duronig Sunday School hours, then church (Abby is starting to sit with me for part of it), then home, and night service. I love my pastor and my church...not much more I can say on that!
These cards are using Our Daily Bread...The second one I like better, but I think they both are simply said. I will probably give them to the "Someone Cares" Ministry at our church. They write to prisoners and it is almost completely funded by the leaders of the group, so I like to help out when I can.
The patterened paper is from my stash...
Close To My Heartt cardstock...
Georgia Pacific cardstock for the base...
And as previously stated - Our Daily Bread Stamps...
Today is a busy day...Nick is gone playing Army, Mom's morning in the park to watch the kids play, time with my friend Lisa and her kiddos, and then who knows what...I think game night with my girlfriends?? I think I still need a babysitter!!
Here are a couple more cards using my patterned paper stash - these are Close To My Heart, the cardstock it is mounted on is CTMH, Georgia Pacific Cardstock base, and Stampin' Up! Sentiments
"Don't treat me any differently that you would a queen!"
"Well behanved women seldom make history."
So fun, right? I like my cards, not as much time as I used to, but it gives me some serenity!
Today I am thankful for the wonderful Granparents I had growing up. I never had realy grandparents to look up to that I knew. So we had the Grandma Kobers - three women who never got married. They had to remain single to keep the family farm and that is what they did. All three have passed away, but I have so many childhood memories that include them. I miss them bunches.
This paper I found reminds me of them....Don't know why - but it does!
The stamp in again from a Stampin' Up! set I bought...doesn't show up the greatest in the photo, but it will do!
"A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water"
So I realized I has too much patterned paper...is that even really possible?
I decided to take do some more cards with simple paper and sentiments.
How did I do?
The sentiment is a Stampin' Up! Set I bought a while ago. I am getting more and more into the simple stamps. I still like to color, but since my craft time is limited I can't do the images as much as I used to. Doesn't mean I will stop, I will just slow down!
"There is nothing wrong with the world that a sensible woman could not settle in an afternoon"
I think these colors make me happy and that is why I love it so much....
Please excuse the dust as I changed my blog a little bit and lost a lot!
I am misisng my Tangled Up In Creativity Girls, the blogs I visit and a few other things.
I hope to have those things back up and running on my blog this afternoon as this is my early day off of work. Not that I get home early...I visit my friend Lisa, run to WalMart and the post office, and then walk with Petra!
I have plenty of cards to show you, but that will not happen until tomorrow as today I am exhausted with changing this blog and am kind of frustrated with blogging now!
