Card Of The Week – Thinking Of You
Happy September to you, dear friends! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a month since I last ventured into my craft room to create a card – but sometimes, you find yourself in need of a little rest and TLC!
As we find ourselves on the precipice of Autumn, I find myself returning to this creative space listening to the rhythm of the new season – assessing which creative paths to explore and which creative opportunities to embrace.
My workspace is somewhat in shambles as I work on clearing out the old to make space for the new…
I did clear enough of a space to create today’s card – a beautiful Black and White Thank You Card whose monochromatic theme is jazzed up with a touch of silver glitter and pink bling sparkle! There’s also a touch of green iridescence along the edges of the sheer organza ribbon.
All in all, a rather sophisticated card for a friend!
This week, the Paper Girls and One Stitch At A Time Challenges asked us to share what we are most Thankful / Grateful for in our lives. I am thankful for my relationship with God – my loving husband who has stood by my side through thick and thin – my amazing cats – and for you, my online friends and readers!
You can meet Magellan – one of my fur babies – at this week’s Wordless Wednesday party!
Now it’s your turn to share your creations with us! What have you created or acquired this week? Whether you’re showing off your desk, sharing your latest acquisitions, or spotlighting your latest creation – be sure to share it with our creative community at our weekly parties as well!
Have an inspiring week and thanks for stopping by!
