A Song in My Heart

Hello, how are you doing? I'm still battling extreme exhaustion and I'm afraid I've developed a bit of insomnia but I'm trying desperately to find a solution because I'm not having any fun! I haven't been crafted all week (all my posts were scheduled) but I've been jotting down a lot of ideas in my little journal. In a rare moment when I had some energy, I started tidying up the small area where I keep my craft supplies and found these notecards. I made these back in November and completely forgot them about so I thought I would post them now for your enjoyment. :)

I used the wonderful Ippity set Sing a New Song to make this set of notecards. I started by stamping the scalloped border on all four sides, double-stamped the sprigs in a darker shade of green and then the sentiment in black. These were so quick and easy to make! It only takes a couple of minutes to make each notecard and these could easily be replicated for quick, economical gifts. It would also be fun to swap out the sprigs and sentiment for the music notes and alternate sentiment in this set.

That must have been a pleasant discovery on your desk -- and a nice sentiment to read on a less than perfect day. (I think you need a vacation!) These make such a pretty set.

Such a very pretty set and I will save that sentiment in my brain today - now just what kind of song will it be? Hmmmm - time to check the playlist. Hope you're back to your perky self soon.

Ha, now I know there is someone out there work just like me, same here Emily, I have been suffering a long week of health issue, work issue, that I really can't find energy to go into the craft room, and just like you, my blog is always pre-scheduled 5 - 7 days ahead of time, and when I have nothing new to show, going through my folder and find something that I haven't share is what I would do.
I do enjoy this lovely set, simply light and refreshing!

Julie E said...

Simple, yet still interesting. I really like that scallop.
Insomnia tip (from a friend who was so bad sleeping pills did not help) - do not do anything exciting - buy the most boring book and if you are up get out of bed and read it. If you need more tips let me know and I will ask her for more :>)
