Miles Apart


Even five miles can seem far away when life is busy being life. I've begun making cards on occasion, and with these, found more reasons as to why I like it. In addition to being able to provide a smile with a handcrafted card, I'm loving that items I'd bought (maybe impulsively) weren't going to make it on a layout once I'd actually seen them in person, but worked great for a card.

I'd recently bought a package of Fancy Pants {Trend Setter} buttons and when they arrived, they were so much larger than I'd been expecting. I had almost written them off until I was going through my stash and pulled them with some other supplies for the first card.

I had also thrown a package of Jillibean Soup {Happy Camper Stew} die cuts into my cart, solely because my sister LOVES squirrels. So onto a card they went! We're pretty nutty when we get together as only sisters can be, so I thought up a sentiment stating the same.


Do you ever shop impulsively, or not love an item once you see it in person?
