"Thanks For Your Support"


Thank you all for your kind words, comments, and e-mails yesterday. I apologize for my complaining. I have just been in a funk lately and I couldn't get out of it. But, I think I am coming around. I had a bunch of errands to run yesterday and decided to stop at my local stamp store for a minute. I ended up finding some fun paper and black brads. Then I had to go to the bank, which is close to Joanns. So I ran in there too. I got myself a new cuttlebug embossing folder and some sheer ribbon. I also bought some mod-podge. I picked up some clipboards at Staples and I am going to decorate them. I ended up coming home and looking at all my new paper and goodies and I knew that things are going to be better. I started a check list of all the things I need to get done in the next three weeks too. (which is kinda a lot)

So the next time I get into a funk, someone yell at me and tell me to go shopping. I guess retail therapy really works. Today I am going to get my sample card done for my class since I now have the sheer ribbon and try to come up with one more card for my class. Here are two cards I came up with last night when the kids went to bed. I didn't get the summer picnic SU paper that everyone is using with the tart and tangy stamps so I found my own cherry paper. I inked up the stamps with markers and then went over them with the markers cause they weren't dark enough for me. I think these cards are cute. The greetings are Hero Arts. They come in a three pack called Sunny Messages. The third stamp is thinking of you. Thanks again you guys. I am so lucky that I have a support team like you.
Stamps: Tart and Tangy, Hero Arts
Paper: Real Red, Green Galore, Whisper White, Non SU DP
Accessories: SU Markers, SU Circle Punches, SU Scallop Punch, SU White Gel Pen, Green Apple and Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon

I really like your cherry paper! I'm glad you had a fun day out and about. I also like to color in those cherries because I didn't think they were dark enough.

I responded to your tag on my blog!

I responded to your tag too! Glad you're feeling better now. Isn't it amazing how we just seem to "find" ourselves in a stamp store just when we "need" it most!

Hi Rochelle, these cards are lovely and so cheerful...sorry to see that you felt so down :-( good to see that you did a little retail therapy, it is the best kind, LOL.
I am sure you will sort your craft area out a bit better, I had to do the same when I moved, I found a drawer by the side of where I sit in the lounge and just keep a few things in there so I can have a play whenever! As for them turning anything down that you did, then they don't deserve you! Your stuff always looks professional and beautiful, I am full of admiration...so kick 'em into touch girl....ChrissyX
