Special Card

Good evening Y'all!    Just watching a little Dancing with the Stars and thought I would try to get a blog post up, before I call it a night.    Hope everyone is doing well!     There is a lot of coughs and colds going around in my neck of the woods, but I think I'm somewhat better.    Not completely over it, but getting there.    I pray that if any of y'all get it or are sick with it now, that it doesn't last long and that you can get over it quickly.    Take care of yourselves.    I was just looking at the weather app on my cell phone and we are in for some arctic weather this week, with the possibility of a snow mix on this coming Sunday.   brrrrr     I dread it!     When I was younger, I loved cold weather.    But now that I am a little older and and a lot wiser, I would just as soon to have it pass us by!    But, we will have to deal with it as it comes.    So, I guess I have to just buck up and get ready for it.    There will be a rush at the grocery stores on milk and bread for sure.    Just wait and see.    hahaha

I made a special card today and wanted to share it with y'all.    I really did enjoy this card so much.    A friend picked up a stamp at Good Will and asked me if I would make a card for her.   I was more than thrilled to do this.    Especially when someone says, "just do what ever you want to do", those are my favorite words.   hahaha    I hope you enjoy looking at this card.
I had a blast making this card.    I used some Spellbinders dies for most of the cuts.
Oh yeah, got to get my bling on with this one!    Don't cha know that I am one happy camper!!
I love the butterflies and the glittery goodness.   
In this pic, I wanted to show the layers of the two diff ribbons and then the flat back pearls that I used.
This is the stamp that my friend had picked up at Good Will and wanted me to use.    I think it is a lovely sentiment.    It is the main sentiment on the inside.
This is the sentiment on the upper portion of the card.
Ok, so my card was dimensional with the butterflies and I didn't want them to get crushed flat so I had to make an envelope for it.    I used my Silhouette software and designed an envelope.   And then I could not resist putting more blingy goodness on the outside of it.
This is a side view showing the depth of the envelope.
This one shows a bit more depth.    I got my envelope designed and cut out.    Then I used my envelope creator and punched all the corners out and then rounded all the points of the envelope.    I really love my envelope and I think it should be pretty much custom sized for any size card.    I had a couple of scraps left from cutting my envelope and I used those to just fussy cut a couple of easels to tuck inside the envelope to sit the card and envelope on, so they are matchy matchy.

I sure hope you loved seeing this card as much as I loved showing it to you.    It was fun to make this.   I know my friend will be pleased and I can't wait to give it to her, she will be so pleased.

Tomorrow is Veteran's Day.    Thank a Veteran tomorrow.     We owe a lot to all of our service men and women; those who have served and those serving now.    They put their lives in harms way for their country, the United States of America.    Thank you so much for your service to your country.    I pray for the stability of the world so that all of our men and women can come home to their families.

As you think about what the Veterans have done for you, think about what Jesus Christ has done for you.    Have you ever been in a pit, been slavery to sin and prisoner to fear?    Of course you have, or maybe that is your present situation.    It does not have to be, because Jesus can remove you from the pit, break the bonds of slavery, and throw open the prison doors.    How do I know that?     He has done that for me!     He can do that for you, too.    Trust Him, Believe Him and let Him!

I pray that everyone has a wonderful night of renewing rest tonight and pleasant and sweet dreams.    I pray that your tomorrow is full of blessing that fill you to overflowing so that those around you are blessed by you.   Share the blessing that Christ has shared with you.

Ladybug, I hope and pray that you have a marvelous night and a wonderful day tomorrow.   Stay warm!    Sweetpea loves you!

Goodnight y'all, be blessed and remember that God loves y'all and so do I!    hugs, Patty

    1. Thanks so much Zsuzsa! Ohhhh, I do love some glitter. I'm glad you called you called it Aqua. That was the color my friend suggested but I really didn't know if it was Aqua or not. I thought it was, there just wasn't anything that said it was. I thought it really made a pretty card. Thanks again Zsuzsa!! hugs, Patty
