I've got quite a few irons in the fire this week and next between the anniversary activities, tax season, Valentine's Day, and Hank's 4th (!!!!!) birthday. I also have a belated homemade wedding gift that is finally and at last completely done. Huge thing to cross off my to-do list. I want to get that in the mail this week too.
Of course, there needs to be a homemade card in there as well. Just whipped this up. I say that all cavalier, like I didn't sweat over it for 60 minutes when I should have been doing something else. I'm super thrilled with how it turned out. Lots of soft colors and symbolism on it--the wedding date, the location, a jar of sand and shells. The bride and groom got married on the beach and used shells to pick up sand and pour it into a jar that they brought home during the ceremony.
It was a bit ridiculous the number of stamp sets I used here. If you got them, use them, I say. I always get a little alarmed when I see threads on the PTI forum talking about selling sets. You don't want to do that!!! They'll come in handy one day. Just think of them as building your collection. And then you can use a little bit of this one and a little bit of that one when creating cards. You just can't predict what you are going to need in the future, so keeps those treasures on a shelf for a rainy day.
