Today is last day I get to share a project with you as an official “’fetti friend” as my term ends the last day of February. I’ve really loved using the products from Reverse Confetti and hope I’ve inspired you to at least take a look at their website and blog!
Most of my projects over the last couple of months have been Valentine’s Day or Love themed. Not this time! I wanted to create a more generic set of cards. I really loved the bold “Today” stamp in the “Right Here, Right Now” set and decided to use it to create a set of “everyday” note cards.
I wanted the “TODAY” to really stand out, so I used bright red ink (Doodlebug’s “Ladybug” Red ink by Colorbox) on smooth white cardstock. I embellished each card differently, but used die-cut shapes, cut with the “Square Tag” and “Documented” Dies by Reverse Confetti. I chose papers and brads from the “Anything Goes” collection by Echo Park Paper Co.
Thanks for stopping by my blog TODAY – and thanks again to the nice folks at Reverse Confetti for inviting me to join them for a few months! :)
Speaking of “TODAY,” I’ve had the words to this hymn playing over and over in my mind since I started this project – so I thought I’d share the lyrics here:
Today, while the sun shines, work with a will;
Today all your duties with patience fulfill.
Today, while the birds sing, harbor no care;
Call life a good gift; call the world fair.
Today, today, work with a will;
Today, today, your duties fulfill.
Today, today, work while you may;
Prepare for tomorrow by working today.
Today seek the treasure better than gold,
The peace and the joy that are found in the fold.
Today seek the gems that shine in the heart;
While here we labor, choose the better part.
Today seek for goodness, virtue, and truth,
As crown of your life and the grace of your youth.
Today, while the heart beats, live to be true,
Constant and faithful all the way through.
Now…Go out and take advantage of TODAY – make it a great one!!!
