Alphabet Card

Happy Wednesday, Everyone!! It's so funny because I thought yesterday was Wednesday. I only realized today that yesterday was Tuesday. LOL! I was reading a few blogs and it seems a lot of stampers and crafters are starting their own stores and such. I think that is so cool!! I've thought of selling kits and such with instructions exclusive to the kits after I saw some ladies selling their kits directly on their blogs. My only reservation is that I love crafting and once I start turning it into a job, well. . .I may start to feel differently about it.

Crafting is my escape after working. I remember when I was working (real job), my crafting helped me wind down and escape from the stress of the day. I looked forward to sitting down on my days off to create something. If I turn it into a business, well . . .where will I go to escape? I will have to look for another hobby. . . gardening perhaps? LOL!

Anyway, I wanted to reserve today for crafting but I can't. . .I have a lot of chores and my garage still needs to be organized. I need to clean our wood floor. . .it's that time again. I clean my floor twice a month and I mean. . .CLEAN. The full polish treatment! Argghh! I hate doing it but it needs to be done.

Well. . .now to my card. I made it last night before I went to bed. It's just a random card. I have a ton of chipboard alphas so I grabbed one of them and looked around for a "sentiment" that would match my alpha. It's sort of fun to grab an alpha and create a card around that alphabet. Try it. . .it's a great way to get rid of your alpha chipboards!

Hope y'all have a wonderful day!!

This is so great, I have bunches of letters and never use them, thanks for the idea.

This is awesome! I love hoe you paired the striped letter with striped dp and that ribbon sewn onto the letter is ingenious! :0)

Your card is awesome and thanks for a great idea! No why didn't I think of that!!! lol
I also loved reading your tag Maria. Nowadays,it is certainly harder to stretch those dollars. However, if I had a million dollars I would certainly enjoy every penny of it! *smile*

Hope the penny pinching isn't too hard!
