The sentiment on this card is so touching to me. I am much better at making pet sympathy cards than people sympathy cards. I am trying really hard to get out of my comfort zones a bit more lately though. I think the book challenge that I have been doing has inspired me. It is getting me out of some of my reading comfort zones, not that I am all that narrow in my reading in the first place, but we all fall into having comfort zones.

This is one of my favorite stamp sets that I own. I really love all of the wonderful messages, and the apple has come in useful in a couple of different places.

Until I started watching one of my nephews on a daily basis and had to be up early I didn’t get up until double digits most days and that involved my sweet husband bringing me a cup of coffee and something to eat. There was a period where I couldn’t drink coffee because of a medication I was on, but now it seems as long as it is black I can again! Which means hubby is back to starting my day with a hot cup, and it is one of the reasons I love him so much.

Someone with a birthday this month really likes glitter and sparkle, so when I was shopping on my birthday I saw the paper that I used as the back piece and immediately thought of them! I really do have a stash of paper that reminds me of certain people, stamps are like that also. Even if I only pull a certain set out once a year, I still love that whenever I see it I think of them.

In order to make sure that everything is going to fit correctly on my cards I generally make a mockup in my design space program that goes with my Cricut. I didn’t do that this time, I don’t know why I just didn’t. You can see what happens when I don’t, I lost part of my design due to overcrowding! Lesson learned!

Making myself feel really brilliant today, while I was working on figuring out the layout of this sketch and trying to get the measurements correct for cutting, all of a sudden I realized that the correct measurements are actually written on the sketch. I sware I spend so much time looking at the shapes on a sketch that I just didn’t notice that there were numbers, Well that made things easier. Geezes, Gina!
