Wow! It has been quite awhile since my last blog post and so much has happened. Some good but I have had to deal with some very difficult and sad things as well. Slowly but surely life is beginning to take on its old familiarity and my desire to craft is returning. I must admit, I started working on this card more out of necessity than inspiration. After all, my oldest grandchild, the one who made me a grandma is turning 17 and well, I just could not send him a store bought card. As I began to work on this card, I really began to enjoy the process and actually have plans to get crafty over this long upcoming weekend.
Here is the card I made for Jacob:
I used this awesome sketch from Your Next Stamp:
I also used two of their stamp sets.....the adorable dog and Party Animal sentiment are from the
Party Pets set. The small Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Keepin' It Reel set. I am entering this card in their Sketch Challenge #96.
I am also entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.
Well, that is it for tonight. One more work day and then I intend to enjoy every minute of my three day weekend. I hope you enjoy yours also.
