I wanted to share this simple but pretty card with you today– that is a nice reminder to me that no matter what you face during the day- to find Joy in something that day.
Today- was kind of a frustrating day for me- you know the feeling? So frustrated with the circumstances of the day, that you could cry- or crawl into bed and forget the day. As a mother, you can’t just crawl into bed and forget the day- and small children don’t like to see their mommies upset because they don’t understand it.
So, I put on my best mommy face- and found joy in the hugs of my children, found joy in not cooking dinner-and going out instead, and found joy in a new Close to My Heart catalog that came in the mail from my sweet friend, Bryan!
(ps. I’m not as tough as I sound- a few tears did fall- and I did vent to some very close friends- sometimes you just have to!)
This card cut is from the Silhouette store- in their clearance section this week! 50 cents–I was all over it!
I used kraft paper, my favorite DCWV stack at the moment–Garden Tea Party paper, crinkle ribbon and a stamp from Pink by Design’s Enjoy the Journey. Simple, but so pretty, right?
Also–the kids are OFFICIALLY on SPRING BREAK- and I couldn’t be more excited!! 🙂 They will spend a little time at their grandparents- which means date nights for mommy and daddy!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend everyone!
