Happy Wednesday, everyone!!  I can't believe it's the middle of the week...it feels like it is just flying by right now!  Yesterday was a pretty quiet day at home, other than meeting for my weekly Bible study with my friend Laurie.  We discussed 2nd Peter 3, and then of course...our conversation veered off.  That's okay though, because it was a meaningful and wonderful talk...most likely exactly what we were supposed to be talking about. :)  Speaking of Bible study....I am going to get back to sharing my notes on my blog.  December & January were so crazy busy, but I should be slowing down a bit now.

I also spent a lot of time updating my FOR SALE tab, and there is a ton of stuff in there now.  So- check it out!  Lots of great stamps for great prices and all in great condition!

Today I have a fun card to share with you!  I was asked to guest design for Precious Remembrance Shop, using their new Thanks Stamp Set.  I absolutely adore every sentiment in this set, so I very eagerly said yes!!  The Precious Remembrance Shop Blog has a ton of super cute projects using this stamp set, and you will fall in love with it once you see them all!  And thankfully, they are willing to work around my crazy busy blog schedule...so I am very happy about that!  Here is my first card using this awesome stamp set!
1. Make A2 card from kraft cardstock, then round the bottom right corner.
2. Cut a decorative envelope from vellum. {I used my Cricut, but you can use a Silhouette or even freehand it!}
3. Add a little spray adhesive to the inside, then sprinkle sequins on it.
4. Adhere the envelope to the card front, then zig-zag stitch along each edge.
5. Adhere a diecut heart to the corner of the envelope, then accent with a gem.
6. Stamp the sentiment below it in black ink.
7. Scatter some sequins to the upper left and lower right corner.
8. Accent with pearls to finish.

I hope that you enjoyed my sequin filled thank you card today!  {Just an FYI- the sequins are from Michael's, and were found just in their normal sequin section.  That's why they aren't on the link list!!}  I hope you have an awesome rest of your day!

Until later,
