Papertrey Ink: Thank You Card

Boy! How time flies!  It's the start of another week already! 
I didn't get to craft much these last few days.  We have two sick babies in the house.  The little one has been sick since last Thursday and the girl since Saturday.  I took the baby to the doctor on Saturday and today.  Both days his doctor couldn't figure out why he has been having fever.  Hubby is taking him to the lab for some blood work tomorrow if the fever persists.
I am a little disturbed because when my baby's doctor tried to pick up some ear wax from my baby's ears with the tweezers, his ears bleed a little.  I assume his doctor accidentally scrapped my baby's ears because he moving so much.  His doctor assured me it's okay.  I hope so!
Hopefully Kaylie's fever goes away soon.  Otherwise, I will need to take her to the doctor. 
Today's share is a thank you card.  This is one of the custom made card for a customer. I needed to make a few cards fast so I used only sentiment one this one.  Yup, no coloring!

Sentiment:  Papertrey Ink
Fabric Flowers:  Kimbee's Designs
Pearls:  Recollections
Metal corner:  eBay
Gum Drops:  Your Next Stamp (c/o)
Papers: Forgot, sorry!

Hope everyone is having a great start of the week!

3-Strand Glass Pearl/Peridot Shell Necklace

Hi everyone!  Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!
I took advantage of the sale at Michael's a few weeks ago and bought more beads.  Bead Gallery beads were 55% off, which was the lowest price of the season!  I just had to stock up!  lol
Here is a 3-strand necklace I made using 20mm loop peridot shell (Bead Gallery), glass pearls (Darice), and 6/0 Czech glass beads (Beader's Paradise).  The longest strand is about 20 inches.  Toggle closure. 

Over the years, I've accumulated tons of beads.  I am slowly trying to use some of them.  The ones for sure I am not going to use, I am going to put them on Ebay. 

Thanks for stopping by!
