Grateful Beyond Measure

Happy Saturday blog friends!

I have a little card to share...using my fav Mama Elephant stamps.  I had been on a roll, and then this week happened, lol!  It was rough, quick but rough and I didn't get much crafty time in.  Easily remedied this morning, wahoo!  The sketch over at the Mama Elephant blog got me started.

To start, I turned the sketch on its side.  I adhered a strip of patterned paper to the top portion of my card base, I then spritzed the card with some white SC Mr. Huey.  I stamped the triangle image in black and adhered a heat embossed speech bubble over it with foam.

For the upper corner, I used a bit more patterned paper (must dehoard, must dehoard) and a strip of some washi tape.  Lastly, I added some enamel dots to incorporate more of the blue color.

Here is the sketch:

On a personal note, I feel that I need to apologize to you all for not coming clean about my blog comments.  Last year I posted that I was turning off my comments, did so...and regretted it.  You see, I realized how much this community of crafters meant to me.  We encourage each other through our blogs and I feel like I severed that part of my crafting experience.  After I had this epiphany, I kinda let it slide here and there, until finally I decided to not even bother turning them off.  I know I have probably lost a few of you because of it, and for that I am sad...but I am starting anew and wanted to come clean.  So, dear crafty friends, thank you for hanging in there with my fickle nature, I appreciate you so much!  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
