Silent Night

Happy Monday!!! Yeah, for a great weekend. It was awesome. I did go visit my friends grave. My mother went with me. It was very sobering but I know she is with me helping me to do what I need to do. She truly is my guardian angel.

The rest of the day was spent with my parents. Just relaxing, watching movies and eating pizza. The best things to help you enjoy the weekend.

Yesterday was church. My oldest son had a part in a primary program during the first hour of church. I was so proud of him that I literally had tears in my eyes. I was trying so hard to not cry. I managed partially. I did have to dry my eyes from tears that did escape. It was awesome. I am just so excited about everything right now.

On to my card. Friday I got some goodies in the mail. My latest Papertrey Ink stuff. I bought (absolutely had to have it) the new Silent Night stamp set. Plus, I never did get the dark chocolate and vintage cream cardstock so I got some of that. So, when I sat down to create I had to use those things, right?

I ended up not using any of the paper though. I found some SU! dark brown cardstock cut to the perfect size so I used that instead. That just confirmed in me that Papertrey Ink cardstock is so much better than SU! cardstock. I say that because when I went to put the ribbon in the cardstock (I punched a hole and then threaded the ribbon through it) the cardstock ripped. It wasn't too bad and you can't really tell but I was still upset and sure that wasn't going to happen with Papertrey cardstock.

So, the rest is self explanatory, right? If not, or you have a question about something else please feel free to email me and I will get back to you asap.

I hope you have a great Monday!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
