OWH sketch 178 – for you

Hey! Happy Sunday; it was a good day here. My husband’s parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary today! Lots of family came from out of town and it was really wonderful to see people we don’t see very often. πŸ™‚ My husband is the youngest of 7, and it was very funny as they all shared stories from growing up and the things they learned from their parents. My husband talked about perspective, and how he felt sorry for those poor souls who could only afford a half grocery cart of food – because for 9 people, they left with 2 or 3 carts! πŸ™‚

Making a card was the perfect way to de-stress after a long day. Okay, I did get up early (we had guests overnight at our house) before everyone else to shower and then I checked out the sketch and chose my papers and stamps. And THEN I let it percolate for 13 hours until I could assemble it. πŸ™‚ This is Operation Write Home sketch 178:

  1. Wow! What a great day! I “make” most of my cards in my head ling before I am actually able to play with the actual paper. Glad to hear I am not the only one!!! Love the colors you used.

  2. Congrats on 50 years to your hubby's parents. My own parents are coming up on 47 years. Great colors and I love the paper piecing on the balloons. Glad you had some time to craft because you made a wonderful card!

  3. The print in the balloons is so festive, and the kraft for the layers holds it all together so well. Love the colors. Twine is always a good textural addition. Amazing that you could make such a cute card when you had guests! Know what you mean about de-stressing, though.

  4. Great card Jen, and I love those papers! Love the story about your hubby being 1 of 7! Mine was 1 of 9, so I'm aware of those shopping extravaganzas!! LOL
