Thanks for your Patience :-)

Here's another simple, single card to thank you for hanging in there with me during this long interlude between blog posts!

Stampin' Supplies: Fun 'N Fast Notes stamp set, Bashful Blue card stock, Brocade Blue card stock and marker, Whisper White card stock, Bashful Blue Tafetta ribbon.

It has been a busy couple of weeks around here, I've rearranged my schedule so that I can offer my kids a home-based education. It's actually a Colorado public school, but we get to use a nationally certified online curriculum, books & supplies, and computer & printer for we can have the benefits of home school, without me having to come up with every lesson and resource on my own. It's absolutely fantastic, and I am so grateful that I can work on my business from home so I can be available to give my kids this awesome opportunity!

Anyway, I just wanted to touch base with everyone and thank you for your patience. I hope to get back on track with weekly card templates by posting my next new one tomorrow!

Another Birthday Card!

This one's just a quickie...a friend of mine from grade school had a birthday the other day, and I actually stamped the card, took a picture of it, and mailed it all on the same day. AND--the card was actually delivered on her birthday. Wow, I'm so proud of me!

Stampin' Supplies: All Holidays stamp set, Polka Dots & Paisley stamp set, Basic Grey card stock, Blue Bayou card stock, Blue Bayou Prints Designer paper, Versamark ink pad, Black embossing powder, Blue Bayou ink pad, Blender Pens, Black brads.

The saying was embossed in black, but the word 'dear' sort of melded in with everything else, so I used some Blue Bayou ink on the tip of a blender pen to add color around that word. The picture doesn't exactly do it justice, but you can see how highlighting that word with color made it pop out from the rest.
