Well, here we are, my last post for the week! It's Friday, and I am happy to report that I survived my first 2013 work week (an entire three days, mind you) after my little break in December.
I thought I would finish off the week with a bright and cheerful card. Because it's getting colder and colder, and this is how I'm choosing to fight off that chill (this and some hot yoga sessions at my local yoga center) ......oh, and delighting in the fact that after passing winter solstice, we are now seeing more daylight with each passing day!
I'm going to slip this card in with my daughter's stuff (somehow) when I see her this weekend. She is about to leave the country, spending the next several months abroad. And if you remember, she did this a year or so ago. It was difficult, because she is a bit of a nomad and off the grid when she's abroad (no phone/computer). So, we don't talk as often as we do when she is "Home"....mostly whenever she is able to use computers from friends or at a library...And I worry because I really don't know where she is...Hiking and traveling about with friend. Yikes. I get worried just thinking of it.
Anyway, I just thought it would be nice to send her off with a little note from me. A little reminder kiss.
The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Company, "Snowflake Kisses". The colorful striped button in the center - this is a very unique button that I acquired from Pinque Peacock! It's fabulous and I specifically created the bright card so that I could use it! And of course, the orange ribbon is 3GirlJam from the Harvest bundle...As I've mentioned previously, the orange is such a wonderful bright and cheerful color!
So there you have it. And entire week of Unity goodness...finishing it off with a bright and cheerful card as the skies around here get colder and colder.
Remember to comment on each of my posts this week, if you'd like to have a chance of winning the two itty bitty stamps of your choice! And hey, let me know how you fight off that winter chill!
She is going to love your card..bright and cheerful !

I have to admire your strength! I'd be a mess if my daughter was abroad and I had no way to contact her! That has to be so tough, but hopefully this gorgeous, colorful card will keep her spirits high and she'll know you're always with her in spirit! I love those brilliant colors! I keep warm under a fleece throw with a steaming cuppa cocoa on these cold nights ;)
I am catching up today.... had foot surgery a few days before Christmas and have been on the couch most of the time! Happy to see your GIU week cards!
