Praying For You
Good morning everyone! I hope you are starting your Sunday out sunny! How was your Valentine's day? We didn't do too much around here. Our son had a basketball game in the morning. Then we went home a 'vegged'. We decided to go to Olive Garden for dinner (our favorite place - Nick's too). We thought that we would be clever and try to beat the crowds by going at 4:30. Ha!! We still had an hour wait!! Oh well. The food is way worth it. And we had dessert, too!!! YUM!! But, that was all we did. My husband did get me some really beautiful red roses. They smell wonderful, too! He is my valentine!!
Enough mushy stuff. Let's look at the card. I took inspiration from last month's Cards magazine. I did not get this card right on the first try. Nor on the second. Nor on the third! I think that I took this card apart FOUR times! And, actually, on the last time my friend Becky did it for me as I was ready to give up and throw it all away! Thanks, Becky! I used a product called Un-du to take apart anything that I have glued together. It's a stamper's and a scrapbooker's best friend. It will not hurt your project in any way but it does smell like lighter fluid. So, I joke about how flammable this card is now! Trust me, though, this card does go together pretty easily. Thanks for stopping by!!
