Happiness to Last

It is so buggy in Michigan tonight and my papers/card stocks are oddly limp and I missed Barry Bond's homer when I went for a run at 11:30 PM. As I walked out the door, I said-I bet he does it after I leave. Sure enough, just as I hit the garage coming back, I heard the roar of the crowd from ESPN. If I had only run faster tonight I would have made it in time. But the humidity is crazy and as much as I love heat, not when I am running! It's still 80F at 1:30 AM and 85 % humidity. I feel like I took a bath but no soap or lavender lotion with it!

This card is not huge-made from a small leftover piece of card stock. Folded up, it is probably 4 inches across. I was working on another card of the same color and didn't like it, so lopped off the end of the legal size card and used it to make this on instead. This is a nice tag card for a gift or with a money card inside.

I show it here with the front a bit ajar. I edged it with distress ink in a brownish tint-I just like the way brown and lilac look together for some reason. I did measure the piece of card stock so I would know where the middle was and folded both sides in to meet at the center. I added a Prima flower on one edge of the front and found a charm and piece of ribbon in the messy drawer for any loose thingies and tied them together and snot dotted it to the flower.

A small poem was laser printed on a sheet of off white card stock and then I tore the edges and inked them in the brown as above and taped it inside. There is plenty of room to write a small message either inside the flaps. This was very quick and is adaptable for babies, birthdays, or just because days-which maybe are the best cards anyways.

Now I am really gonna take a shower-and get out the heating pad for my knee. Have a nice Wednesday everyone. August is flying by!
