Coffee/Tea of the Day - Reiki (delightful fruit and floral tea blend)
Happy Thursday to all of you! Our day began with a beautiful cleansing rain and now the sun is peeking its head through the clouds. the air is clear and fresh, the grass has the most lovely aroma & little drops on the blades, and the birds are singing their songs. oh, what a wonderful day it is turning out to be! :)
Last year I took time away from my crafting to pursue some travel time with hubby as well as some amazing experiences in activism. 2 weddings in the next year put a bit of a crimp in that, and not that I mind one bit, but I do have the most treasured memories of the trips Dave and I took. Palmer, our beloved rescue pup, went on quite a few of those adventures with us. :)
I had that in mind when I made this card....
Dave is not just my other half, he completes me. he is my better portion. he makes me want to be better, and in turn makes me better. to say he is my best friend would be such an understatement. he is the very air I breathe. and I fail to tell him so more times than not.
it's a fairly simple card, but it packs a lot of love into it. :)
I used some of the paper scraps from the Carta Bella Cowboy Country paper collection that I had on my craft desk from the card I had made the other day. always nice to use up some scraps! ribbons come from Really Reasonable Ribbon, vintage buttons are from my stash, and that fabulous sentiment is cut apart from the wonderful 'Adventures' stamp by Rubbernecker. the cutey image is from LOTV and features a quirky girl riding along with her pup. I added crystal effects to the bike's headlight. beautiful die is by Spellbinders.
off to my craft room. lots of cards that need to get made and have to work this weekend. love to all of you!
