A Thank You Each Day 🍎

Do you say “I’m sorry” too much? Women are the worst at apologizing, even when we haven’t done anything wrong!

I’m working on replacing “Sorry” with “Thank You” and had the opportunity to practice on Sunday when my husband was waiting for to go to church while I finished handouts for my primary class. When I was done (we weren’t late), I said “Thank You for your patience!” instead of ”Sorry to make you wait” and he was more gracious about the wait.

Of course, an apology when I HAVE done something wrong is appropriate, but when I can use THANK YOU instead, it feels more validating for both parties: “Thank you for listening” rather than “I’m sorry I’ve been talking so much”!

My card today is one I can use when someone has sacrificed their time to help me (and I have a friend in mind)…so instead of saying “Sorry I took your time” I can express my appreciation for their assistance!

It’s also a #multicrafting project: I used the Global Design Project sketch #gdp366 , the Apple Harvest stamp set to participate in the Stampin’ Through the Catalog challenge on Instagram and the colors Soft Sea Foam and Cherry Cobbler so I could share it for a Red & Green creative challenge I gave my Sprinkled Ink team.

An Apple A Day

…keeps the boredom away! The Apple Harvest bundle is sure to inspire your creativity as it has mine; To be honest, the stamp set from the July-December catalog wasn’t really on my radar at first, but when the Perfect Partners Promotion introduced coordinating dies for the Apples, I perked up and paid attention! Fair warning: You may be feasting on many apple-inspired projects over the next few weeks.

Thanks to the #tgifc385 sketch, this was an idea that woke me up at 3 am:

Aside from the dies that cut out the apple images, there are LOTS of leaves (making it easier to cut out many at one time), a branch, different sizes of flowers that can be used on their own, a long label (I cut mine down to fit the THANKS sentiment), and my favorite: A double scallop! The scallop can cut a scalloped edge or a fine detail…like I used on my card.

Also being used a LOT in my current projects are the Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels…they pick up whatever color you stick them on and add a rainbow sparkle. Who can resist that?

There’s my inspiration – and to get you inspired, check out ALL the Perfect Partners pairings…but don’t hesitate! The coordinating dies (and thus, the bundles at a discount) are only available during September 2022 (or while supplies last).
