Good Saturday morning!  Did I tell you that my daughter, Kate, got married back in March?  Oh I did!  Here’s their picture on this post.  I said then that we would eventually give them a reception.  Well, today is the day!  All the family and friends have been invited to Kate and Will’s new home for an Open House, a barbecue and plenty of libations!  They are very excited to have everyone visit so they can show off the new digs . . . . they’ve been doing so much work on it and it’s an adorable little house.  I’m so excited to be seeing out-of-town family especially since it’s for a joyous occasion instead of something sad.  I’m sure I’ll have plenty of pictures by the end of the day!

I received some new stamps in the mail before I left for Orlando and then this week I received some new Webster’s Pages.  Oh wow!  I decided to take some time last night and whip out a card using all my new stuff.  It was nice to take a break from all the CHA projects that are spread out all over the house.  I could barely find the new papers . . . actually, everything is such a mess (so unlike me) that I really can’t find anything.  I’m just about at my wits end with it all and will have to clean and put away before I start the next round of projects.

Okay, so here’s my card.  I’ve had this in mind since I saw the set (Wordsworth Remembering – Poetry of the Earth).


I stamped the trees lightly with Crushed Olive and then stamped the sentiment over the top in Coffee.  The paper is sewn to a background piece of cardstock.  The only thing inked is the sentiment.  I sanded the edges of the background papers.

This card is also for the Stamp Simply Saturday Hop – Dressed in White!  You need to check out Sharon Johnson’s blog and all the white and ivory ribbon packages she’s made.  They look fabulous! All the white and ivory ribbon when ordered by the spool is on sale at 15% off.

Well that’s all I have for the day so far!  Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, enjoy the adventures that come your way!

  8. Have a GLORIOUS time celebrating today!!

    I love that sentiment. Immediately it came to mind as to why I prefer mtn. biking over rode cycling….in the mountains I’m away from it all. Even though I can be struggling, it is so refreshing not dealing with people, cars, etc. It is a time to clear my mind and just let things be.

  9. oh I love your card….. partially because it is truly beautiful as everything you create always is, but also because I find such truth in that senti.
