Phew! That was a crazy few weeks! Becoming a working mom was quite an adjustment. I finally feel as though I am getting my head slightly above water. I have definitely gained a whole new appreciation for all my mom did for my brother and I – working all day, getting groceries or running other errands, picking us up, and getting dinner on the table for when my dad walked in the door. Of course, with wanting to spend as much time as I can with the little man, and having to plan all of my lessons for school, cook, and clean up at the end of the day, I haven’t had any time for crafting – which is sad, but ok. I was fortunate enough though to get a few minutes in the old cabana last weekend to make a card for my brother-in-law’s 30th birthday. This year was the year that he finally got older than my hubby and I. See, we stopped having birthdays at 29. :)
For this card, I reworked the case I did of a Kristina Werner card. My first version is found here, and this is my second version:
The papers are all from a Recollections stack, and the dies and stamps used are from Papertrey ink. I embossed the 30 with ultra thick embossing enamel and popped it up with some dimensional adhesive. I used some Twinery twine (in real life, the twine colour and the cardstock colour for the 30 are much closer).
Well that’s all for now. I will definitely pop back in tomorrow to share with you a card I made for the first lesson in the new Online Card Class called Kick Start.
Thanks for stopping in!
