Today is CASE-ing Tuesday! I needed thank you notes for the gifts that I got for Christmas, so this was a perfect time to make mine with the Thankful Thoughts stamp set. As I was looking outside at the beautiful snow, I got the idea to use snowflakes on my card. For the snowflakes I used the Snowflake Sentiments from the holiday catalog. I love the font in this set along with the snowflakes. I am really excited it will be carried over. That means that you will be able to order it until the end of May!!! Yay!
Here is the picture that was our inspiration this week.
To make this project you will need the following products:
Marina Mist Cardstock #119682
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Soft Sky Cardstock #131203
- cut at 1 1/4" x 2 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 2" x 5 1/2"
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
I used the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape above and below the white paper to frame it. The snowflakes and sentiment in the inside were stamped with Marina Mist ink and the sentiment was stamped with Dapper Denim ink. To decorate my envelope I stamped the snowflake on the bottom left corner.
I really like how this card came out. How about you?
How was your Christmas? Ours was wonderful! We had both of our girls home and we had a snow! We didn't get a lot, but enough to cover the ground. I couldn't have asked for anything more.
However, our Christmas Eve was very stressful. Erica had to drive home from Traverse City, MI, which in good driving conditions, is 7 1/2-8 hours away. She got out of work at 3:30pm and then headed out. I was a nervous wreck all day long as there were snow advisories out all day for the whole area she was traveling. I get a phone call around 8:00pm that she had hit black ice and was in the ditch. A mother's worst nightmare! I got her calmed down, she called a tow truck and was waiting for it to arrive.
As soon as I got off the phone with her, I got on Facebook and starting asking this wonderful group I am in, Creating for Christ, to start praying for her. Emily contacted her friends in Texas and I sent out text messages to my family. We had people all of the country praying for her and her safety. God answers prayers!!! A tow truck showed up about 10 minutes later, he was driving by and saw her. He told her she would have waited 3 hours for the other tow truck to get there. Thank goodness God answered our prayers! He pulled her out and she was on her way again. It cost her a fortune, but she was back on the road. In the meantime, the roads had iced up and had more snow on them.
Erica finally got home safely a little after 1:00am. I am not sure who cried more, her or me. I was never so happy to have her in my arms. To me she was the little, or I should say big, baby I brought home from the hospital. She was 10 pounds at birth. We had her for a very short time, she had to go back today as she has to work tomorrow. I already miss her!
Needless, to say I really didn't think about what I needed to do for my blog until later this afternoon and realized I forgot to write this post. So, here it is, just a little late.
Thank you for stopping by today.
