Forever Grateful

Good Morning

I am not a crafter that often put a sentiment on a card, I prefer to leave my cards without a sentiment and then add the sentiment to the card as soon as I know who it is for and for what the occasion is.

But today's card is different, I made the card and kept on thinking that something is missing and then when I went through my stamps I found some sentiment stamps that I have not even used yet.  The "forever grateful" stamp with the curls looked just right for what was missing on my card.

So here is my card.  It has been a long time since I made a card without a stamped image, but my friend Sharon posted a post with just such a card not to long ago.  She reminded me that it is nice to make a change from what we regularly do.  Sharon's blog is one of the blog's where I find so much inspiration and she is also the person that helped me to start my own blog.

A close up of the sentiment.  The stamp is from Kaisercraft.  I do not own a lot of sentiment stamps, so maybe it is time I rectify that.

The paper is from First Edition Paper - Family Ties.  I added some gems to the centre of the flowers.

I am busy working on a Christmas card (for the past 2 weeks), but I am finding it difficult to get it done, it seems that there are some stuff missing (maybe I need some Christmas mojo), so I keep on moving it back, to the side.  I really hope that I can finish it this weekend.

Thank you for visiting and I hope that you will all have a very pleasant weekend.



  1. Morning Marika, thank you kindly for the mention. It's been a huge pleasure seeing your blog develop and grow. I find the papers are just so beautiful, that to cover them up with images is a sin. So pleased you tried something different. Remember, you can always create your own sentiments by typing them onto paper. I then photocopy them onto cardstock so that I can cute around them with my nesties. Hope this tip helps you until you can get some sentiment stamps. Remember, Merrypak is just around the corner. hugs Sharon x

  2. Dit is pragtig. Dit sou definitief skade gewees het om die papier toe te maak. Ek gebruik baie eerder my rekenaar vir woorde, dit is meer versatile. Ekskuus vir die woord.
    Hoop jy kry bietjie kersfees mojo....dalk bietjie rondsoek vir uitdagings op Feline Playful en Sliekje het mooi digi's wat jy 'n bietjie Afrika geur kan gee.
    Mooi naweek!
