Daisies on Navy Birthday Card

TGIF!!! So glad Friday got here – it has been a long week. Not really sure WHY it has been a long week?? I did lose one day (spent it on the couch in the basement, so I could tend to the laundry machines without much movement!) to side effects from a Shingles vaccine. And I spent yesterday (which is my normal cleaning day) amazed at how much dust & grime had accumulated over the holidays (I didn’t have a regular cleaning day – I did a few freshen up things, vacuumed a few times). OH.MY.GOODNESS.

I used this bunch of daisies earlier this week, as traditional white daisies. But all along, I saw them on dark cardstock. With colored pencils.

Again, I am not sure if the sentiment strip. Maybe change it to pink with silver embossing?

Have a good weekend!

Square Turquoise Daisy Birthday Card

This one was for personal use.

How were your holidays?

Ours were OK. We celebrated Christmas together as a family the weekend after Christmas, due to Offspring1 travel.

Biggest tragedy was dropping a large Pyrex mixing bowl and the glass shards *POSSIBLY* spraying into a large batch of macaroni & shrimp salad that I was making for one of my cousins on Christmas Eve. We cleaned up all the glass. Husband ran to the grocery store to purchase more shrimp. Offspring3 scooted to a local antique store and bought me a replacement Pyrex mixing bowl (she is sweet!). I made a new batch of macaroni & shrimp salad for my cousin. Husband (mostly) and Offspring3 ate all of the *possibly contaminated* macaroni & shrimp salad, with no visible complications so far.

Happy New Year! May 2020 be kind to us all!

Trio of Tall Money Holding Cards

These were very last minute!

I started out thinking I would make a different size, and create my own envelopes. Alas, I did not have time to do that, I found some A10 envelopes (that were not security interior envelopes!) in my stash, and made the cards 3.75 x 9.25 inches. I glued a 4 inch pocket to the bottom of the interior to keep the money in place.

I probably will not post between now and the new year. Just too much going on.

Happy Holidays!  Merry Christmas!  Happy New Year!  May 2020 be full of love & light!

Stenciled Snowflakes Tag and Card

I got a new snowflake stencil from Gina K. Designs last week, and I combined it with a GKD wreath maker template that had smaller snowflakes. After the stencil inks were dry, I stamped Hero Arts snowflakes in VersaMark and covered with good old Iridescent Ice embossing powder from Stampin’ Up. I finished with a sentiment and a few sequins.
