The Perfect Ending...

Today, was a day of getting things done. I accomplished quite a bit today in my house (where it was warm), but I still have tons to do. I gave up on that and decided a creation needed to be made. My inspiration for this card is my uncle who was just moved into Hospice care.

After supper, we were watching the All Stars Skills event on T.V. it was fun and all...but a card idea was calling so I started drawing what I wanted to do. Then the paper was calling my name so I escaped downstairs to my craft room and started know I had to set the mood...candles, inspiring music and of course a can of Coca Cola. I was set and ready to create.

My uncle used to drive truck and he loves them, so I thought I would make him one. I order some stamps from the Little Paper Shop and this was one of them I received this week. When I stamped it I just knew this card was going to come together. I love the truck instantly. Tonight, my stamping braught me peacefulness, joy and relaxation. I know I can take pride, that my uncle will love this card. I had more idea's flowing, but I was getting tired, so I figured I should stop before the mistakes started happening. Tomorrow is another day, I hope to create more. Wishing everyone a night a peacefulness.
