All the details
Ever have one of those weeks where you want to curl up in bed and pretend the world will go away??? That has been mine. I decided some stamping therapy would help tonight. It did :)
So my mom's best buddy has the same birthday as my dog. Mrs. R. is pretty fun loving so we pick on her about it quite a bit. I decided that this year I would send a card from Delilah and I. I actually really like the way it turned out. It is pretty simple but the embossing and dots on the ribbon seem to tie it together well. I added a little stickles on the candle for some shine. I wanted it to be from the dog too, so I added a little bone brad at the top of the otherwise pretty card. Inside I wish her a happy birthday but divide her age by 7 (sort of like we multiple a dog age by 7 to figure out their comparative people age). I guess great cards are all in the little details.
Last year I made my sister-in-law a whole box of cards for Christmas. She loved it and tells me all the time how she is using them. She also has started hinting that she wants more. I decided to start early this year so I would not be scrambling at the end when I am trying to grade finals, shop, make and mail Christmas cards, etc. Here are the first four of the year. I am not positive what occassion they are for, but she will find a good use.
BTW, then I came down stairs to take pictures of the cards, I busted Delilah who decided my bed was better than her own :)
