Hi Everyone!! I have so missed being here, but if I started to tell you how horrible the past few weeks have been, it would even depress me! haha Today is our 26th anniversary! I know I clearly must have been a child bride! Actually, I was 21, and when I look at my "baby" who is 22, and graduating from college in a couple of weeks, I can't picture her getting married at this age. I still balance her checkbook, she wouldn't know what to do with a budget if you handed it to her. I think that times were different back when I got married, and it was the best think besides having my 3 beautiful children that I have ever done! Now to the part that I hope that you will all be happy to see that I have made my first card in a long time, so I hope you like it, well I really hope that my hubby Paul likes it, since it is for him. I made this card a 6x6 square, and I ran 2 strips of Washi tape down the left side, I cut the bottoms into a V, and at the top I placed flat backed silver pearls from a kit also from HSN, The white paper I embossed with the Swiss dots embossing folder. The love is with silver letters from my stock, and the Dream and Love on the bottom is also from my stock
I made the envelope with my new favorite tool from We R Memory Keepers Envelope maker.

Hey Everyone!! Well things are slowly getting back to, I hate to say normal, but back anyway. I want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, and for the beautiful cards that some of you took the time to make and send. It was so comforting to get cards from you guys, knowing the time that you all to to make them. I will have to post them, so you all can see the work that was lovingly put into each and every card. I did finally feel like getting back to work in my craft room, to make a card for a friend who has just turned 50, and I thought that I would share it with you. Thanks again you guys, you helped us get through a horrible time, the loss of a brother that came way too soon. Karen♥
I think that this card reflects what all of us think about that certain number, and it can be a different number for each of us, but gives us the same feeling!!! I used some patterned paper that I had in my scrap's pile, and I used a strip of while with a smaller strip of white paper on top of the first to make it look like wooden molding separating the paper to look like wallpaper. I drew the toilet, but I am sure that there must be a die cut for it somewhere. I then wrote the message to look like a framed piece of art on the wall with x-stitch floss and a yellow brad to hold it up on the "wall", and topped the whole thing off with a roll of toilet paper that I drew to look like it was on a chrome holder on the wall!! I hope you like!! Karen♥
