It's been a while!

I've had quite a busy June and haven't posted in some time--so sorry! I have a few projects all ready to post, I just haven't had the time to do so, so here we go!

Today is a simple card I made for my mother. She has been going through a rough time at work and I wanted to make her something to keep at her desk and lift her spirits (hope you liked it, mom!).


I used Unity's Lasting Thoughts kit. I love how versatile this kit is, with several quotes perfect for all different occasions. I added some silver Stickles on the stars and tied off a piece of black May Arts baker's twine. (Their baker's twine is seriously the best!) The embossing folder is from Darice. Simple and quick, but I love how it came out.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
