Hi everyone! Today's card is for the Papertrey Blog Hop this month. We were to use an old or uninked set. Well, one (Love Birds) is a brand new set that was released last month BUT it has never seen ink!! The other (BB: Text Style) I just got through a trade today, so it's old and new..lol. Honestly, these are the only Papertrey sets that I have that have never been inked and I use all of my sets pretty regularly, so none collect dust..lol.
Moving right along...I made this card just for my husband. He's in Germany right now and will be there until June and as soon as I saw this sentiment, I knew I had to have this set. Ok, well Laurie had a TON to do with me buying this set,too! The sentiment is so true - nothing IS the same when he is gone. Whether it is a little thing like making sure the garbage gets out in time for the collectors or big like taking care of the house and cars and making sure everything runs smoothly. It's just so different. And though he has been gone pretty much every year since 9/11, it's still very hard each time. Ahhh...ok...exhale and get on with it, Keva! :)
So, here is my card with my new favorite color scheme:
I just love this card. It has so many of my favorite things on it. The twine, the buttons, that "certain" embossing folder that I cannot get enough of, embossing, and of course circles!! :) I had such fun making this and I am sending it off this morning so that it gets to him in time for Valentine's Day!
Well, that's all I've got. Thanks for stopping by! Laters...
