Paper craft project no. 79: Have a great day

2013-11-12 OLC Have a great day
Update 11/16/2013: Wahoo! This card’s a winner! Thank you to the ladies who posted
congratulatory comments! When I checked my email, I saw them and I went, “Huh?” LOL!

Here’s an A2 one layer card I made for J, a senior I’m card angeling. It’s been nearly 7 weeks since I started making cards for and writing to her. It’s become one of the things I look forward to doing every week. I was afraid I’d quickly run out of things to write to her about, but so far I haven’t. In my letters to her, I’ve written about living in the country, the new well that is getting drilled for us, and our kind, elderly neighbor who has generously been letting us pump water from his well the last few months. She wrote back to tell me how she enjoys reading about my country living adventures and how it helps her forget her troubles for a while (she is battling cancer). And to think I haven’t really gotten into telling her about our German shepherds, Rachel and Shadow, in great detail. Now, I can talk about those two sweethearts and their naughtiness adventures since we rescued them a year and a half ago in at least a couple dozen letters! ;-)

Anyway, I used the new stamps in the Vignette series from STAMPlorations (the Chevron & Arrows set) and the sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch #53. This week’s cue word over at CASology is “triangle” so I used the triangle border stamp and stamped it in different neon ink colors (Hero Arts). This card also fits CAS on Sunday Challenge #21: One Layer Wonder (Make a One Layer Card).


Thanks a bunch for stopping by! Give someone a smile today :-)


PS: I’m hosting a monthly paper crafting challenge over at my other blog. This month’s theme is “STAMPS & SEQUINS”. Winner gets to pick the 2 Vignette stamp sets of her choice. I hope you’ll come join us!
