I'm Grateful!

Today's post over at The Sisterhood of Crafters is all about being grateful - and finding gratefulness. And after returning from a week in the beautiful Dominican Republic with my mom, I'm grateful to have gone on such a wonderfully sunny vacation with her - and the fact that we're both still talking to one another after a week together. LOL!

I created this card as a thank you to her for our vacation and also had a chance to ink up some previously unopened new Verve stamps (plus, my even NEWER ones arrived today, so hopefully that'll get me crafting some of the upcoming birthday cards I'll need!) I used colors that I know she likes - and I hope she has a little idea of how much I appreciated our time at the lovely Moon Palace in Punta Cana!

I'm still not loving taking pictures with the new travel camera that MrP is forcing me to learn to use, but I'm getting there. At least I know it takes great tropical pictures. Now let's hope the disposable that I used for my parasailing pics takes the same - I'll know tonight!


  1. love the different nesties you used :) This is such a great sentiment...I really like stamps that mix the fonts :) New Verve...yay!! When you come to Kelowna next time, perhaps Laural and I will drive there to meet you for a glass of wine and a bow tying tutorial ;)

  2. The colors are great and I love the center shape! Sounds like you had a great time :)

  3. Lovely colour combo - nice, clean and simple. Excellent!
