Butterflies Day 3

Welcome!

I wasn’t sure where I was going when I started this card, but I sure love how it ended up! First I used my Concord and 9th turnabout stamp, but this time I used the same color on all four turns. I then embossed the card front and topped it off with a sweet saying by Taylored Expressions. Ink used was my favorite, Catherine Pooler.

Until tomorrow..

Butterflies Day 2

Welcome!

I hope you are having a great start to your week! It is so beautiful outside today. I just had to take advantage of the sunshine for today’s photo.

This card was fun to make. I used a stencil I purchased from Tuesday Morning last winter. I blended Catherine Pooler Inks for the background and then used my Concord and 9th butterfly stamp and sentiment as the focal point. I love how it turned out!

Until tomorrow…

Gratitude Day 7

Welcome!

It was a crazy day today that left me very little time to create any more journal cards. I headed over to see my Mom in a neighboring state. She took a bad fall a few weeks ago and has been in a transitional care facility. We had a nice visit, but the drive there and back was about a total of four hours, plus the drive was in a bad thunderstorm, along with construction. I just want to take it easy the rest of tonight.

I made these cards last night for the boarding facility taking care of my cats. I hope they like them. I am so grateful to the staff. It’s making a difficult situation a little less stressful. I miss my cats so much, but we need to get my son back on his feet without them impacting his allergies.

Gratitude Day 6

Welcome!

Today’s post I tried to brighten up the journal cards a little by adding a touch of color using flowers I purchased from Hobby Lobby. I think it softens the cards up a bit. I’m thinking when I post these on Etsy, I may add a candle for a cool effect. Maybe I will try that for my post tomorrow. Let me know what you think!

Until tomorrow…

Gratitude Day 5

Happy Friday!

Two more gratitude journal cards to share with you tonight. I’m starting to get the hang of how to measure these so they are straight and centered. Don’t look too closely at the cards at the beginning of the week.

Until tomorrow…

Gratitude Day 3

Welcome!

I enjoy making these journal cards. I’m taking quotes from an old gratitude journal and gluing them to 3″ x 4″ card stock pieces. This size is considered a standard journal card. I then round the corners and use distress ink around the edges. By using distress ink, it helps to create a vintage look to the cards.

Until tomorrow…

Gratitude Day 2

Welcome!

I hope you are all having a great day! It was sunny and 80 degrees today. I snuck out a few times to enjoy the gorgeous sunshine.

The best part of today is that I was able to visit my cats. We have to board them for the summer while my son is home.

Until tomorrow…

Gratitude Day 1

Welcome!

This week I’m thinking about launching my Etsy shop again! I have sold greeting cards and decorative envelopes in the past, but I would like to introduce something new. I’m thinking about journal cards. The journaling and planning communities have become quite large, so I’m thinking I may be successful in this spot. I’m going to showcase my gratitude journal cards this week. I hope you enjoy this series!

Until tomorrow…
