Simple Thank You card

It's been a rough week - and this morning a friend showed up on my doorstep with flowers and medicine.

She was such a blessing, and I really wanted to make a card just to let her know how much her thoughtfulness meant to me.

This was a quickie: washi tape (and yes, I cut the heart out from tape, too) and a sentiment from Wordsworth.  Added a bit of washi tape to the envelope for good measure, and it's on its way!

Canvas Banner

How cow, I cannot believe how long it's been since I posted here!  It's now 2013, and one of my goals for the year (you'll notice I did not call it a "resolution") is to do more crafty stuff.  Our lives have been a bit chaotic in the past couple years, and my creative endeavors have sort of fallen to the wayside...

Our daughter just turned 8, and we had a dance themed party for her.  Most of the decorations were straight from the Dollar Store, but I did manage to make this 1 simple banner to welcome the guests (and then hang in her room).  I purchased the banner "blank" from Hobby Lobby (Donna Downey product).  I hit each pennant with different colors of glimmer mist in conjunction with masks from Heidi Swapp, Tim Holtz & Tattered Angels.  I had so much fun playing with the colors and images!  The letters are chipboard (also from HobLob) that I painted with black acrylic and then glued on.

So that's all for now - but I *WILL* be back to share more in the months ahead!
