....for the 1st time since early february........
i stamped this morning for about 2 hrs.!!!!!!!! got 3 cards ready for stamp camp. then i went outside & did some things in the yard. then it got too hot out, so i came in for a while & stamped some more!!!!! did a bunch of birthday cards, made grandma's mother's day card & then went back outside to tan!!!!! i sat in the backyard this evening until it got dark, just sitting in the moonlight talking to God. we had the best time together!!!! i even thanked Him for letting me get sick, because He really taught me a lot of things during that time. i'm happy. then i stamped some more!!!! made a special birthday card & i'm really pleased with how it turned out!!! i was in a "paint chip & embossing mood" today!!!
grandma's mother's day card - she loves butterflies:
made it look like the newsprint paper was "burned"!
the inside is newsprint patterned paper too instead of plain white - i just wrote directly on it with a sharpie marker!!! i embossed a couple stars on a paint chip & cut them out to go on the inside. i LOVE the way this card turned out!!! i want to keep it!!! does that ever happen to you? you make something for someone & it's so cool that you want to keep it for yourself?!!
