Hello, Friend! ATC

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Caramel Hazelnut

Hello, Friend! that is the theme of my post today! :)

I have been trying to do a bit of crafting here and there when I can. thank you once again for all of you leaving such wonderfully kind posts about my yuck-o seizures. they haven't let up any yet, but I am trying to not let them get the best of me. not always easy when it feels as if I'm on a permanent brain freeze along with 10 bajillion volts of electricity running through my body, but hey, we do what we can to get through the day. :)

thank goodness that each day brings oh, so many reasons to be thankful and find joy!


today I am showing a little ATC that I made. I haven't made one of these in a while, so thought it was about time. they are so fun to create! and the neat thing is that they fit right in a Project Life page or the new Pocket Pages so many people are making.

I've used images from the 'Hamlet PigWit Think Spring' digital set by From the Heart. the daffodil and polka dot digital papers are some I found for free online here.  dies are by Spellbinders and Lawn Fawn, linen thread is by SU!, while everything else comes from my stash. lots of distressing here, too. oh yes, our little piggy friend was paper pieced with paper from My Mind's Eye Indie Chic collection.

I'll be back tomorrow with another project to share! :)

How super cute is this! You have managed to pack that tiny card full of great details. Love the die cut with the fancy edge and the distressed paper behind it, such great texture and the button and butterfly are such sweet embellies, too. So glad you had some creative time! Sorry about the seizures, ugh, that stinks. I've been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!
