Okay - so now must admit that I am getting slower and slower about my posting...but I have been over-whelmed lately by work and being sick really made me get behind on everything again !! I really hate that I cannot seem to keep up with it all. My hubby tells me that I am always taking on too many projects. I know he is right, but I just can't help myself ! I love to be busy ! Tomorrow is my 61st birthday so I figure that I am allowed to be a little slower nowadays....I have earned it !! Ha Ha !!
Well, I had to finish this birthday card for my brother, as his is this Saturday and I needed to get it in the mail tomorrow. I came across this great "Camping Out" embossing folder from Darice, and I fell in love with it. My brother loves camping, and he even custom builds campers and RVs for people so I thought this would make a perfect card for him. With a little help from Tim Holtz distress inks and a compass mask I added a little extra pizzazz to the inside sentiment, which I had printed on my computer. I removed the shank from a "log cabin" button I found and hot glued that to the front, along with using some hemp to tie on a Tim Holtz Metal plate sentiment of "Enjoy the Journey"...and I couldn't help but add a little pretty butterfly for color, and to represent our dear Mother who passed away 7 years ago and oh how she loved butterflies !
