21 May 16 Update! I just found out that this card was selected as the Chic of the Week over at Just Us Girls!! Want to thank Judy Woodland for selecting my card and send a shout out to all the wonderful cards that were submitted! 🙂
Good morning! As I write this, it’s Saturday evening here in the Veggie Patch. Yep – I’m the vegetable and my 350 square foot hotel room is my little patch of heaven! I’ve spent the day in my jammies, watched a lot of tv, made exactly one card (bad Mary, bad!), done a little napping, and….I had chicken dinner from The Olde Pink House! 🙂
No – they don’t deliver. But, it turns out that I am richly blessed with friends. The young engineer who I’ve been carpooling with these past few weeks came by and brought me lunch. When I said yesterday that I figured I’d spend the day vegging in my room and pass on lunch – he said “that’s great – you deserve a day of vegging.” So…that’s really sweet (unless it means I’m looking really haggard…. 🙂 ) of him. I didn’t expect him to bring lunch for me. What a lovely surprise that was – and surely reminds me that surrounding ourselves with people we care about – and who care about us – is one of the most important things in our lives. And makes every day richer, huh?
Yep – all that from one chicken dinner. I told you – it’s epic! 🙂
So – the one card I stirred myself to do today is one of the two I’ve got commissions to make. The lady who asked me to make her a birthday card for her mother told me “she’s girly and likes frilly things…and her roses!” Which made the stamp choice a complete no-brainer for me. Birthday Blooms boasts a spectacular rose image, so I combined it with some Birthday Bouquet DSP (probably the thing I’ll miss the most from the Occasions Catalog) and added a couple of sentiments from Watercolor Wishes. Take a look-see:
