Appreciate The Beauty

Edit.. this card was shown on the CARDS blog today 1/21... Thanks Paige!

In everything.... that is what this sentiment says. It is from Unity! Love me some Unity and I love this little sentiment/suggestion! :)

I sent this to Paige for this weeks CARDS blog challenge! I hope to have time to make another tree/branch card before the challenge is over... we shall see! I am feeling pretty sleepy right now and I haven't done anything crafty!

Can I admit that I didn't even make my husband a birthday card! How horrible am I? I started to make one last night but I ended up balancing a checkbook, etc... etc..!! Man cards are hard! With the sickness and all the other drama in our lives here lately... I just haven't been motivated to try! Maybe I will make him one tonight.... yeah... I can do it!! :)

He says he doesn't care but... I just can't let it go! It is bothering me! Me... I could care less if he gets me a card on my birthday but.... his heart may really be breaking! :) Ha!!

I did make him a banana pudding and... I decorated our kitchen table with balloons /other decorations and a few wrapped presents! Hopefully he doesn't feel too unloved!

Well...I guess if I am going to make a card... I need to keep the chatty to a minimum! :)

Hope you all have had a terrific Tuesday and have an even better Wednesday!

Peace and Love!

Kelley.....I love it! I loved when you did all those tree cards a while back! They were great. But this one is really cool! You got such great vibrant greens on the kraft cs, it's awesome! Btw, I thought all those circle cards with the buttons were pretty manly! Were they for something else? Sounds like you all had some great birthday celebrating! You should be getting sleepy...it's about 9:45 out here on the west coast....so it's late back there, girl! Happy crafting!

This card is super, Kelley! And a tree would be manly in my opinion - a good way to combine the challenge with a card for Michael :)

Hugs,
Vanessa

I'm really loving this card. I love the tree and the "earthy" feel of this card. And don't feel bad about the birthday card...I do that to my husband all the time. Ha!

Congrats on your MFW win!! Lovin' your tree card...sooo fabbie...and yes, man cards are difficult to design:)

Jessica said...

I love this, Kelly!!! I totally hear ya about creating manly cards. But a tree is suitable. After all he's the "tree planted by waters" and a *shelter* for you and your little one, right? I think you'll do just fine even if its belated :) Also congrats on Moxie Fab!! Your card was breathtaking from the moment I saw it. Well done my friend :)

This is SO cute, Kelley! Great details, but I especially love those three gems on the tree trunk. :)

Elise said...

Hello, again, lil' girl! Happy belated birthday to your cute hubs! Is it possible that you have two Capricorns in your life? Woweee! HEY! Why NOT use that card as a man card? Everything goes better with Kraft, right!?! I think it would work - either way, rocking card! That sentiment is SUPER!

Stephanie said...

Love this card Kelly - and I think Elise got it right by suggesting using this one for Michael. Hope you all enjoyed his birthday :)
