A card...

I haven't been 'creating' much the past few days....

BUT-Samuel spent the night at a friend's house last night so when I woke up earlier this morning and went into my scrap-room I KNEW I wouldn't be interrupted with his sweetness. I just love that little man to pieces but I KNOW when he wakes up in the morning the FIRST thing he does is look for me!! He always finds me, usually scareing the pee out of me and then, I know, any play time-for me- has ended. SO, knowing that he wasn't here and that Nikki would sleep until mid-day AND Joe is at work, I decided to relax and have some FUN! Unfortunately the majority of what I worked on is Secret Sister stuff so I can't post it BUT-but, but, but- I DID make up a few cards........

I was inspired by a card I saw at Inglishrea's gallery (SCS). You can find it here:

I don't know how else to link so if you know of an easier way, please DO share with me.

Anyways-I LOVE these colors together-they are (CTMH) Sweet Leaf, Cocoa and Colonial White. I used an OLD CTMH stamp set that I've only ever used once before and I THINK someone even left a comment to tell me what the name of it was and I didn't write it down.......I'll have to go back and look sometime today and mark it on the box so I know.....

I used CTMH papers: Cocoa, Sweet Leaf and Colonial White and more of My Minds Eye--LOVE those papers!!!
For the first card I used a quote at the bottom from Love Quotes (CTMH C1194). It's one of my favorite quotes, " The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart."-Helen Keller
And Love Quotes is one of my favorite sets-you know, one of
the ones you're SO glad you got!
#2 & #3 are pretty much the same......the only difference is on card #3 I stamped 'Bless You' at the bottom. It comes from an old 'woodies' set from CTMH -again, I don't know the name of it-Boy! I sure DO like how the name of the stamp set and number are on the acrylix now!!
Can you tell I REALLY like this card! {heehee}
I also, of course, added some brads in the corners. Much better don'tchathink?
Funny--I think even the wee small addition of that Bless You at the bottom make a big difference. I think I like it better!! ;)
Ok- so that's all for now....
Joe's home so I'm gonna go so how his night went!
Enjoy the last day of your holiday weekend!
