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.

Happy Anniversary 🎉 Day 2

Welcome!

Today’s card was not planned out at all. I received some very inexpensive stencils from Wish.com. I believe I received 12 stencils for the cost of shipping, which was only $3! I planned on using the stencils for backgrounds in my journals, but decided to use this one as my focal point.

Once I stenciled the cats and butterflies, the paper looked too stark, so I embossed the entire front and then added some yellow to dim the bright white of the paper.

Not my best work, but as a cat lover, I would love to receive it. I’m saying this as my cat is snuggling up to me on the couch.

Have a great Tuesday!

Until tomorrow…

Quilling 🌸 Day 7

Welcome!

I’ve saved this final card for last. I found a tutorial on YouTube when I first started researching how to quill. This one popped up early on and I wanted to try it because it looked so cool. It probably took me 2-3 hours to complete last night, along with a few colorful words that came out of my mouth 😊

I’m not crazy with how it turned out, but I’m proud of myself for going outside my comfort zone and trying something new for 7 days.

I hope you have a blessed Sunday!

Until tomorrow…

Becky 🥰
