Some cards are hard to make.

Not because they are complicated, or use a fussy technique.

But because of the subject, and thinking about the recipient, and your own life.

Yes, some cards are hard to make.

(Supplies: Doily and Lace stamps, notecard and envelope by Hero Arts. I embossed the doily in white. Message and ribbon by A Muse. Label 4 die cut by Spellbiners/Nestabilities.)

One thing that made this card a little easier to do was I saw there’s a Moxie Fab challenge going on to use doilies and lace. Or I wouldn’t have known where to start.

Back tomorrow with some happier thoughts. In the meantime, hope you are having a good weekend, and enjoying every moment.

Off to hang out with J,
