Not Quite Shabby

Good Morning Fellow Stampers!

Thanks for stopping by!  I have a pretty “vintage” card to share with all of you today!  Black & Cream is such a classic combo, and it’s all the color you need to make a beautiful card just like this one!  Oh…and a matching envelope too, if you so desire.

I found myself in need of a little paper “therapy” over the past weekend, so I went into my studio hoping to console myself by touching every piece of paper I could find!

After weathering a cold, I thought I had bounced back enough to get a few things done around here. First up, hanging the new window blind in the laundry room.  A small task one might think…hmm…not so much.  Hubs jumped in to offer his help and we were on a roll!  So, off he went to man another task and left me to tie up the small ends that you tuck back in at the bottom.  After a few go arounds with the blind, things still weren’t going my way.  Needless to say, the blind is left hanging there, one side longer than the other, and will remain so until I have had my fill of “therapy” and I feel like I can tackle the job once more!  There’s a reason you pay people to do this!

I only share this story because that’s how I ended up in my craft room in need of “therapy”. 🙂  Where would we be without some sort of relief from all the craziness?  I love my “therapy”!

Normally a  good “session” in my craft room would include massive amounts of ink. I usually have Ink everywhere (mostly on me)!  Not this time. Not a smidge of ink until the very end ! Can you believe it! (roll eyes here). This card is all about the paper! I hope you love it like I do, it’s not really vintage, and it’s not quite shabby either!
