I made this card a few weeks ago for Kris, a stamping Pal, whose mother passed away. I didn't want to post it until after it was received. My heart still breaks for Kris and her family. Unfortunately, I know how hard it is to heal after losing your mother.
Paper: sage shadow, pretty in pink and speckled white
Ink: sage shadow, pretty in pink (markers & ink pads)
Accessories: flower punch, bird punch, pretty in pink ribbon, brad, cuttlebug embossing folder
For the leaves, I used the bird punch which punches out the bird, a wing and a branch. I took the branch and cut it so it would look like just leaves and put it in my embossing folder to give it some texture. After looking at the picture, I wish I would have centered my words a little higher on the card.
It was a busy weekend with a soccer tournament . Can I brag like a mom and say Michael had three great games. I was in charge of the hospitality room for the coaches and referees. I decided I would cook for 40 plus folks on Friday night. I will never opt to do that again. I called my hubby Friday afternoon stressing and the wonderful hubby that he is, came home early and helped me. I had so much to load into the car, then unload and set up. In the end, it went very well and I had a lot of fun.
This afternoon I thought I would play with my blog. I did not realize what I was getting myself into. I am not computer savvy at all. Anyway, I thought I would make some changes. I started clicking here and there and before I knew it the day was gone and I was like whoa...puppy prints are my background....so this is still a work in progress. I wanted my heading picture to be centered but I could not get that to happen. Oh well, right now this blog has a lot of character! :-)
