Thank You Card

 Hi Friends!  I'm sorry I haven't been posting. . . I've been busy re-building my life and it has been getting better.  It's been a rough few months but I'm happy to say that I'm doing okay.

Part of the healing process included making a card again.  I honestly thought a few months ago that I would never want to craft again.  I cleaned out my craft room, stored my craft stuff in containers and hauled them all out to storage.  I also started selling a bunch of my craft items on Ebay and I am still selling them.  A few days ago, I thought of making a card without feeling sad so I decided to take a crack at it.  I actually felt good making the card. 

 I've decided to sell at least half of my craft stuff and keep the ones that I really would have difficulties replacing.  Fortunately, I left a few items at home rather than storing them but the amount of supplies I currently have are quite limited.  No Spellbinder dies, Cuttlebug embossing folders, Copic Markers, etc.  They're all in storage.  What I do have at home are a few card stock, rubber stamps that I was meaning to sell, a few designer papers, a few ink pads, a limited amount of ribbons and embellishments, paper cutter, tape and paper shaper scissors.  It's interesting that with a limited amount of supplies, it's really quite easy to make a card.  I found that I really don't need all the gadgets and tons and tons of designer paper and tools to make a card.

This card I dedicate to all my friends and family who have been such blessings to me. I've received such wonderful support and I am so grateful for them. They've held me up in my darkest moments and with the grace of God, I am actually doing okay. Life is moving forward. . .although, I still have a lot of things to do and a lot more changes will occur in my life, I am managing pretty well and I still have a lot of good moments. A few months ago I really doubt it could happen but with lots of prayers, my faith in God, friends and family support. . .I believe everything will be all right. 

I decided to re-open my Etsy Shop and also continue to sell more craft items on Ebay.  Please stop by and check out the items I'm selling.  I'll be listing new items on a regular basis so if you don't see anything you like at the moment, please check in regularly to view any new items I've listed.

The card sentiment says:

Thank You. . .
For always being there
For listening
and for your love and understanding

I dedicate my card to all my friends and family.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
