Hubby went back to work for yesterday and today before having another 4-day weekend off for the New Year. And since we’re still officially on Christmas break for our little homeschool, I took a little time yesterday to try to get back into the swing of making cards.
The flower is from my summer vacation flower stash, and I was also fortunate enough to find in my craft stash an American Crafts glitter brad that seemed to match perfectly. The background paper and the black/white DP block are embossed specialty papers I found on ebay years ago. They’re a little shimmery in real life, as is the cardstock I used to cut the Parisian Doily.

I broke out my recently received Love Story stamp set from Verve for the sentiment, embossing it onto a die-cut from the same shimmery cardstock. I used a little charm from a wedding pack I found at my local Roberts store clearance sale. They are closing their brick-and-mortar stores in our area, which makes me sad, because I appreciate being able to jaunt out and grab things when I’m in a hurry, rather than having to depend on the often-unreliable shipping from online companies. But, oh well. Hopefully my crafting life will go on!

It was nice to be creative today, just for the heck of it.
