Grateful

TGIF!!!  Seriously, I have never been so happy for a Friday before.  It was my oldest daughters first week of Kindergarten and it's ALL DAY, that is C-R-A-Z-Y!  Anyway, it's been a bit of an emotional and exhausting week and in about 40 minutes I get to pick her up and start our weekend, YAY!!!

Quick post today for Unity's Friends With Flair.  I have been wanting to do a card swap for a while now but with 3 littles at home my craft time has been very minimal this past year.  With my oldest starting Kindergarten this week and my middle starting preschool next month I thought I might have a few more hours in the day to craft so I signed up for one finally!

Here is the first card I created for it.  I made 7 of them (6 to mail out and 1 for myself).  I rarely create more than one of a card design so I had to factor that in when making it.  The theme was fall so I grabbed this fabulous Bold Bloom from Unity and colored it with my Faber-Castell gelatos and stamped multiple times on watercolor paper.  The sentiment is from Unity as well, an old Kit of the Month called All Seasons from September 2011.  It is popped up for some dimension.  The mini pearls are from Martha Stewart.
 

Have a happy weekend everybody!

Stunning card. Have a nice laid back weekend. My G/D is in full day kindergarten and she is coming home exhausted. Hopefully she will sleep in on SAt.

Love the final result on the combination of materials. Lovely color combination. It looks like a painting to frame and put right in your wall. Very nice.
