A {Thinking of You Today & Always} Card...

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Hello there!  Look at me, posting before noon!  The kids are back to school and I am filled with mixed emotions.  They were so ready to go back to school and I thought I was ready for that too.  This is the first year that they will both be gone all day.  I have a list a mile long of things I want to do and accomplish, but I'm just feeling like I'm having an identity crisis this morning.  I did feel better make this card for one of my besties.  She is having a rough day today too.  I love making cards with a particular person in mind.

I'm loving this card for two reasons.  I broke out my sewing machine (because I'm going to attempt to hem my Mom's curtains) and I sewed in a straight line.  I think I even learned something.  If it continues to work for me, I'll share that tip with you later.  The other thing is the ribbon.  I really love those knots.  I don't really know where the idea came from, but I loved that it worked.
Are you all enjoying these larger photos?  I was playing abound with the html the other day and figured it out. I'll hopefully be working on a new banner soon.  I have plans, big plans.  Just hope I don't screw anything up and delete my blog by accident!  That would be a rough day.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great day!

The big pic is nice. Your card is so pretty! I have yet to use that stamp set but I'm sure I will use it eventually. I want to re-do my blog banner too but I am super lazy. LOL
