WOYWW – I Love You Because Card

I Love You Because Card
Happy What’s On Your Work Desk Wednesday, dear friends!

This week, I’ve been thinking a lot about my husband. It’s been a challenging year – a year of great loss – and yet, a year of great blessing. During times of adversity, you learn who your true friends and family are. You learn who truly loves you – who will stand beside you through thick and thin.

And so – to surprise him – I’ve created a love card. It opens up on the right and it’s hand-stamped on the back with blue hearts, hugs, and kisses. The brown and blue colors, of course, represent his masculine side… but I incorporated some soft, smudgy effects to infuse it with my femininity.

And, of course, there’s a coordinating, hand-stamped envelope.

In other work spaces…

Magellan The Baking Kitten

I have discovered that a new baking feline in the house! To see what Magellan’s been up too – and how he was Caught In The Act this week – catch the scoop at this week’s Wordless Wednesday party!

Spring is here… Easter is coming… and there are Giveaways on my galore sidebar! Be sure to sneak a peek before you leave!

Have a wonderful and inspiring week!

    It takes very sweet and very special people to love animals that much. I am one as well but it is for two dogs. I like all the element’s on your card. I also have had a few too many challenges this last year and friend’s do get thinned out don’t they? At the same time people who you never thought would be a blessing pop in. Thank you for joining us this week at Word Art Wednesday. Blessings, Carole

    So blessed to have you stumble upon me at The Writer’s Reverie – and find you, myself, where I’m just loving your name “Create With Joy!” So glad you shared this with All Things Bright and Beautiful this week.

    There is so much to see here – I need to get on the other side of preparing my taxes so I can enjoy my meanderings without feeling guilty by not working on that mundane chore. Will be back next week for sure!

    Do put me on your follow list – much inspiration to share in the days to come!

So glad you joined us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Use Some Blue challenge. Wishing you all the best in our draw!
