I'm happy to say that so far today is going a wee bit better then yesterday. Goodness gracious the anxiety was high for me yesterday, I couldn't hardly even make a card. That's usually my coping method and great distraction. I even reached out to a dear friend for prayers. It can get a bit overwhelming.. she came through with prayers, and support, and even sent me the cutest funnies, to try and get my mind off of things. I will share a couple at the bottom of my post here. Also so thankful for a praying husband, and my little HP.. this dog just senses things.. and gosh if he don't come running to be by my side. LOVE him dearly.. I thought I'd include another picture of him today.
So onto today's card. I made this one for the challenge at:
I love playing along. They have some awesome sketches. I pulled out one of my old favorites from stampin up. A 1998 set called Definitely Decorative Pines. I remember so well when I first laid eyes on it, I knew it was a must have. I love moose, and gosh if this one isn't a darling. Plus the pine cones are fabulous and that little twig of spruce is awesome. I paired it with a sentiment also from stampin up but a much newer set called Sure do Love you. I thought I'd share a few things I've done with the decorative pines set. Now please keep in mind these were my early years of stamping so not so neat and tidy.. who am I kidding.. haha. .I'm still a sloppy stamper. 😉
This is above a door frame in our home. I did this on two of them, but we ended up removing the one door to a closet a few years ago, but found the basement stairwell a lovely place to re-use it.. so tacked on some hooks and it now holds umbrellas and HP's towel for paw washing and his lead for walking.
I also stamped this letter holder. that usually holds nothing but keys and a remote because it fell off the wall and so now the little pockets don't work so well.. as mail slips through, but I thought it still has a purpose. Any ways just a few quick pictures to show ya how I've used this stamp set over the years.
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit, and reading my ramblings.
