Happiness Shared

Hiya!! Sorry about being away for some days from here! This week I had the kids here for most of the time, and we had to revise for May tests etc.. This is to gear them up before the final exams .. then the summer holidays from July - Sept. That will be some hectic time! *roll up eyes* lol

Anyway here today to share with you a card, a different one from the usual cuties. I needed a more elegant card, one that had to be ready in one and a half days (or better nights, my time to craft! :) Also this week we decided to sell my cards to help the Home, and the teachers wanted more and more.. so I had to spend a lot of time doing the inside of the cards I had done before. If you remember, I used to decorate only the outside before, so I had to roll up my sleeves and dig into paper and embellies! Well, that was worth it. Now I only have two cards left, and a couple I saved for my personal use! Whew!! They were really appreciated. They want me to give courses in summer.. but tell me.. being 24hrs with 6 kids around your feet.. for three months in Summer.. when its super hot here! can I organise couses??? I was never into that! I prefer creating, and stampin away! :)

Back to the card.. When it comes to this type of cards, my main inspiration is Becca. She's hooks me everytime I visit her blog, and maybe this summer I'll try to invest in some Bible themed stamps,for when I need these type ofcards. When my Birthday arrives *wink*, I know my brother always asks me to get me something, and Our Daily bread stamp sets are delish when it comes to this type of cards needed. I decided to case Becca's card, and even though at first I wasn't sure on how it will be at the end, I decided to give it a go. It's not that bad , is it?

Sorry.. not a perfect picture this one
The sentiments are computer generated (enjoy is the only clear stamp used and the Bible verse is a clear sticker), and I used my nesties a lot here. Also this week I managed to break my Martha Stewart Doily lace punch *sob*, but I still have most pieces.. so I managed to make that border by punching... with my feet!! lol

An view of the opened card

It doesn't have the handle, and it's hard to punch with the hand, the metal hurts! But.. when there is a will there is way!! I simply could not part with it.. lol (poor punch, she travelled too much to come to me, it would have been too much on it to bin it!! :))

Now I'm off to stamp something, and do something more that goes in my comfort zone. My new Magnolias arrived today.. and they are calling me.. sorry HAVE to go!! :) See ya!!

By the way, I'll be more than glad to hear your opinion on this creation. You know that your comment makes a huge difference to me!

I can't believe you broke your Martha Stewart punch! I think I would cry if I broke mine! :( That's so nice of you to sell your cards for a good cause. I bet they are a big hit because your cards are just beautiful....including this one too!
