I’ve had this song in my head for days now. Trying to keep the peace in my thoughts.
Hi friends. Just a little card I wanted to share with you today. I wanted to challenge myself a little bit by not putting the sentiment on the outside of it:
Since I’m usually hyper-verbal, this truly is a challenge for me ;). I used the cute clouds from Lawn Fawn’s Bon Voyage mini set and paper pieced them onto the cool calender page from a 6x6 pad of Crate Paper’s Portrait Collection (the background page is also from that set), distressing the edges of each cloud with weathered Wood Distress Ink, then added a few pretty gems to each of them. I wanted them to look somewhat “weathered” so I used my tape runner only on the middle of the clouds and then bent them up a bit around the edges before securing them to the card. Then I finished it off by making it a grid using some awesome grey bakers twine. Just a simple card.
Aren’t the gems gorgeous though?!? They’re new from Prima and I’m so in love with them! It’s hard to get the full effect from them in a picture, but they are very sparkly and are such pretty colors!!! The inside of the card says “You make me HAPPY when skies are gray”. I forgot to take a pic of that, but I used Lawn Fawn’s Smitty’s ABCs to create the sentiment ;).
On another note, my 32 Things To Do While I’m 32 list is coming along. I’ve read 4 books so far, 28 to go (#3 on the list). Right now I’m reading The Glass Castle. So far, so good. We’ve also planned a little road trip up to visit my in laws (#18) and also plan to ride a 4 wheeler while I’m there (#27). I’ve also been spending every Friday with my mom (#28). Taking her to run errands and to lunch. Just having a nice time together. I thought I’d try to keep you guys up to date on my progress ;).
That’s all for me today. I hope you have the most awesome-est of days!
