Cards of Thanks

There are so many reasons why I have to be thankful everyday ... we all are, right? Although I'm in a bad shape right now ... it got worse on the night of Joseph's birthday party. But like all performers say "the show must go on". I don't have a voice literally yesterday and so I had to settle for sign languages which made my boys laugh so hard. Today, I feel better but still got chills and weak body but happy to say they can hear my whispers now hehehehehehehehehehehehehe. I didn't go to work as advised by hubby and so I had a great reason to stay in my craft room even for few hours and make cards.

Joan has been giving away cuties every week in celebration of cardmaking day. I vowed myself and promised her that I will do my best to make cards for her blog candy. It's the last week and I want to join.

Hubby allowed me to work on my cards for the whole morning then I was nagged to go to bed and get some sleep heheheheheheheehehehehehehe. yup, I did sleep that's why it's only now I have the time to post my creations for the day. Oh, I didn't sleep that long ... I had to eat late lunch .... clean the kitchen a little .... take a shower .... take a short walk for fresh air .... prepare dinner ... load pictures of Joseph's give-a-ways .... eat dinner ... and now I'm here to share with you all what craft I did this day.

The theme of my cards for the day is simply THANKS =)

My heart is filled with gladness ... overflowing with gratefulness. What am I thankful for?

1. My son will be turning 7 this Oct. 28
2. His early birthday party was a huge success.
3. I'm the one who is sick and not my son nor hubby.
4. I've got 2 new toys: Pagoda and Rock Princess Cricut cartridges.
5. I have great, supportive, kind crafty friends around the world that inspires me over and over again.
6. I have loads of clothes to wash in the laundry this week hehehehehehehe.

For the basic materials, I used:
printed carstocks by My Mind's Eye "Bella Bella" by Carina Gardner
Yellow Ochre and Olive Green Plain cardstock by Reprint
Base cardstock by CChobby
Flowers by Artemio
Crystal beads by Panduro
Crystal Stickles

Note: The word "Thanks" and the labels are left-overs from my previous projects. I also used the same with Joseph's give-a-way packaging.

 I used the same printed and plain cardstocks for this batch =)

hi Jerosha, yup alam mo talagang madami ako gawa lately... more on my PM sayo sa FB :)


Hay naku Jas with the Christmas just around the corner eh sobra talaga tayong dami gawa. I don't even know if I should be thankful that I'm sick for a few days now kase in a way I just have to stay at home and spend time in my craft room. Ages na rin since the last time I created except for Joseph's birthday ek-eks which I really have to make. Now I'm done with that so finding time to make Christmas ek-ek. Sige will check FB =)
