How much you're loved!

 Hey all,

I've been creating a lot of cards, but seldom take the time to post them here.  Who knew I would be so busy after I retired?  Actually, sometimes I'm not "busy", but I'm doing many things that I enjoy.  I've been walking every day, for several weeks now.  That's something I want to continue, year round.

I'm doing a lot of reading, too.  There are SO many great books.  I've been a member of a book club for over a year now and I enjoy it so much.

Well, onto the card I made this morning.  😀

I used some stamps and dies from Concord & 9th.  First time using these, even though I've had them since mid-December!  The set is called Parcel of Petals.  Even the little envelope die is included. 

Since my favorite color is purple, I looked through my stash of card stock for shades that would work together for this bouquet.  I used a neutral cardstock for the envelope and the card base.  Sahara Sand (by Stampin' Up!).  I've had most of my colored card stock for so many years, that I don't know which ones are still available or discontinued.  Apparently, I need to get busy using up what I have on hand.  Right?

        Thank you taking a look today!
