Hi Everyone. Happy Friday. I cannot tell you how pleased I am it is Friday... but more about that in a minute.
I have a card for you tonight. I made this card for the Seize the Birthday challenge, but missed the deadline.
Here's the sketch for STB
I say "hey there" a lot. So this set with the sentiment on the outside and the birthday greeting on the inside, really was "me"!
Isn't that image from the "For the Birds" set - just fabulous?
You might notice the pale gray card base - that's the new Smoky Slate and I am in LOVE with it. I paired it with Naturals White card stock - and it was perfect. Thank you Gerri K for reminding me that I had totally blown past it in the new catty! I was so happy when I saw your message on my blog post!
I die cut the front panel for the sentiment from an SU die and used the Essentials Pack to get the perfect place for the piercing.
On a personal note:
I may be a little inconsistent with posting during the next week - even more inconsistent that I have been this week. There is a lot of really bad stuff going down at work and, to be honest with all of you, it is occupying a lot of my emotional energy and I'm finding it really hard to focus on anything - crafting included. Tomorrow Lou and I are going to go out and do some fun things to try to take my mind off things and get a change of scenery. I might get back and be able to make a card, but it might be a couple of days. So, I hope you will forgive me if my posts are a little spotty next week.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of those people who were affected by the Tornadoes in Texas this week. Colleen, I am so pleased that you were spared and thank you for letting us know that you were safe.
Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight and I know that there are so many that do.
