Today, I have a fun card to share with you, but I also want to share what I am most thankful for. I am most thankful for my daughter making it to her destination yesterday safe and sound. Against my pleading with her, she took a 3.5-hour drive across our state during a snowstorm. Although I was very upset, I’m thankful she made it safe and sound. I love you 💕💕
Today’s Thank You card was made using my Cricut machine. If you own a Cricut, what do you think of your machine? Mine can be temperamental at times. Sometimes it will cut perfectly, but other times I can’t seem to cut anything but a straight line.
Today, I didn’t have any issues. I used two very pretty yellow cardstock sheets to make this gem. Before I made the first cut, I resized the card in Design Space down to an A2 size card.
The yellow hue makes this card extra cheery!
Today I would like to share with you a new theme in handcrafted cards. This week I will focus on thank you cards.
I found a similar design on Pinterest. I used an old heart punch and created balloons, held with twine and a satin bow. I stamped the card front with a sentiment and then embossed it for more interest. Finally, I attached the card front to an A2 size card base.
This card could be used for many different occasions. Just simply trade out the sentiment to match your special day.
Today I would like to share with you the final handcrafted card in this week’s series. I let my beautiful paper pack do the work for this special card.
I simply cut a piece of floral paper down to 3”X5.5” and then used dark blue paper as the mat. I adhered the piece to an A2 size card base made from yellow cardstock. I finished it off with a simple sentiment.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s Thinking of You collection.
Welcome and happy Friday!
Today’s card was inspired by YouTuber, Stacy Williams. I followed along with her video:
This is definitely a card I’m going to mass produce! Do you prefer to take your time on one special card, or do you like to mass produce your creations? I like mass producing. After 20 or so times, I usually get it just the way I want it 😀
Today is the final installment of my, “Have Faith” themed week. The final card I would like to share with you is from, Psalm 136 (NIV). “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.” This is one of my favorite Psalms. What is your favorite Psalm? What speaks to your heart?
I love the next set of cards I am sharing with you today. The first one says, ”God gave me you.” I have multiple sets of this card and I plan on giving them to my children. I’m so blessed God gave me such beautiful children. They make me very proud.
The second card says, ”Love one another as I have loved you.” This is so important, especially during those times when we may start acting unkindly to someone. We need to remember God wants us to always be kind and caring to our neighbors.
I have two fun faithful cards to share with you. The first says, ”In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” This tells us we have a choice in how we react and treat others. We can be anything, so why would you want to be anything but kind?
The second card says, ”I need a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus.” Jesus is like the espresso in my latte. Today, I needed a triple shot of espresso in my latte! It was one of those days!
I hope you have a wonderful night. Until tomorrow…
I hope you are having a great weekend.
Today’s tags were made using Gina K Designs’ Holiday Foil-Mates. Such a great product and so easy to use. I simply took a sheet of sentiments and paired it up with her festive foils. I ran them through the laminating machine and out popped pure magic! I took the completed sheet and used her coordinating tag set to create these very special tags. Yes, I’m still Christmas crafting.
Tomorrow, I have one last Holiday tag to share with you. Until tomorrow…
Today’s tags were fun to make. I cut the shapes out of kraft paper using my Cricut. I cut out four circles-two solid, one of a dog and one of a cat. I covered each of the solid pieces with washi tape and then glued the animal pieces over rhe top of the solid pieces. I finished off each tag by inking the edges with vintage photo oxide ink.
I truly adore how simple and clean these look. I absolutely love them!
Do you use washi in your projects?
