This card was made with my favorite set from Stampin' Up! It is called A Grateful Heart and the quote that is in the set is from George Herbert and is " O Thou who has given us so much, mercifully grant us one thing more, a grateful heart." I just love it. I made this for the sketch challenge on SplitCoast and thought vegetables were appropriate for the season, and I love the use of the purple on the card. Purple is so under used and under rated in the card world. The paper is from Bazzill and Daisy Bucket Designs. The lower right hand corner has a dot from Stamping Bella and some bling, too. I added pink ribbon and used oval punches from Stampin' Up!
It is good to be home from vacation. My kids thought that their time in Washington, D.C. was like a dream come true. I should be doing the mountains of laundry we have or working on the dishes or enjoying the dog. But I found that on this trip I really missed the computer. I had access while I was gone, but I hadn't realized how dependent I had become on checking in with friends, getting the news of the day, reading the web sites I enjoy. I can definitely see why some families have a laptop for each person. Maybe I need to get out more. But when I am out, I just want to come home and sit in peace and quiet and read, whether a book or magazine or on the computer.
