My dear, sweet friend offered to bring me dinner and as much as I wanted to protest, I really needed it. She brought some super yummy chicken noodle soup, rolls and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies; just what the doctor ordered. I need to return her dishes, so I thought I would make a card to go along with it to thank her.
This is an absolute first.... but I made the card in my bed! LOL! I had to get up to gather my supplies, but for the most part I laid on my bed and glued, cut and fiddled. I think I may have found my new craft space! LOL! Can you imagine? It is never good to be thinking that way, especially when I had the new episode of "Hoarding; buried alive" playing while I was crafting. Maybe I could become a craft hoarder who only crafts in bed with her supplies piling up around her! LOL!
Anyway, I will quit rambling about nonsense and get onto the card. I had some scraps of paper left over from another project, so I decided to use them. They are all from Hobby Lobby, which is becoming the only place to buy paper around here anyway. The colors inspired me to pull out my "St. Patrick's Day" stamps, which is fitting for the season. I still have my Valentine's Day stuff up, but St. Patty's stuff will be going up soon. Most of the images are from PTI, but the circle "mar. 17" image is from a dollar set I got last year. I got a little "die-cut" happy and used my PTI dies for the focal image, the felt ric-rac and tickets. It is so nice to be able to make your own embellishments, especially when you are limited on space. The trim at the top, is just the extra piece from die-cutting the felt ric-rac. I glued it along the inside flap. It isn't going in an envelope, so I didn't mind adding the extra length to the card. If you do add things like this, just remember to grab a bigger envelope. I added a little bit of gold stickles to the shamrock to give it another touch of St. Patty's day charm and called it good. I really would have liked to have added some sewing, but I didn't think sewing in bed would be very easy! LOL! Making this card has made me want to make another St. Patrick's Day banner; surprise, surprise! I love the one I made last year, but I really like these papers, too.
Also, I still have my Valentine's Day projects to show you. I was down to the wire, but I got everything done that I wanted to get done; except for my Valentine's Day countdown calendar. Maybe next year........ Thanks for fluttering by!
