I Made a Card!

In the depths of everything that’s going on with my family, well, birthdays still happen and I needed to make a card for Eddy’s eldest niece.  So, even though I really, really, REALLY feel like my creative juices aren’t flowing I just couldn’t fathom the thought of sending her a store bought card.

While the card I made isn’t over-the-top with excitement I do like the fresh, soft colors and the mix of patterns.  Cutting the sweet jar out of a piece of patterned paper added just the right focal point.  After I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment I spritzed a few shimmery mists on the jar to add a little additional sparkle and shine.  All-in-all I think it’s a cute card for an 18-year-old. What do you think?

I’m also going to try to make a card for my dad today, too. Just to let him know that I’m thinking of him while all of this is going on with my Grandma. It’s not easy to have a loved one be in their last stages of life.  It’s hard on all of us, but especially for her sons. :(

Anyway…thanks for stopping by. And if anyone is still reading my blog? I can’t thank you enough.  It means the world to me. ♥
