A Happy Place

Hello all, life has a way of getting away from me, I have still yet to start my Christmas cards! Yikes. Better get a start on, for some reason the computer wasn't allowing me to upload cards/pictures, so that is fixed now.

Anyway, my hubby had back surgery on his birthday at the end of October and this is the card I made him. I figured that he could use a happy place while in all that discomfort. Inside has the birthday wishes, of course.

I found a bit of inspiration on SCS for this card. I just love this set.
JeanneS had one that was pretty similar with the two-toned trees, that I liked.

I used the Zindorf way of brayering my background, goodness I like that....and added the rhinestones for those precious diamonds in the sky.

Yesterday was our anniversary and no, I didn't make him a card for that. Just no time. I need time to stop for a while, so that I can catch up. But, before I start on Christmas cards, my little guy turns one ON Thanksgiving, so I have to make him a special card to celebrate that day.

Have a great week!!

Stamps: Cute Converse, Happy Camper
Accessories: Brocade Blue, Whisper White, Night of Navy and Going Grey cardstocks. Rhinestones, brayer.

Great card Katie, very very and peaceful. I can't believe Garrett will be 1 soon. Where did the time go.

Great card, I love the "diamonds" in the sky, very creative! Hope your hubby is recovering fast. I've had 5 back surgeries so I know it takes a while to feel back to normal--make sure he doesn't over do it!

Love your background; that Zindorf technique is addicting, isn't it?!!

I haven't watched it in a few years, but your card reminded me of Grey's Anatomy....great job!! and holy smokes, a year already!! I hope you post some pictures of the little guy on his big day :)
