Be Free

Well all caught up...kinda:)) This is my version of the silhouette. I am not sure if it is correct but I enjoyed making it. I have had a fair bit of.... blechh occur. My hubby was laid off, same day our AC didn't work..and we were suppoed to have it fixed a month before. 2 days later I saw a dear friend of mine get into a car accident. She is OK but shaken up and I am certain quite sore. I will not ever get the image out of my head and my heart just went out to her. I just wanted to hug her and say all will be OK when i saw it happen. Thankfully all is well. I am hoping there will be no more surprises and before you feel bad for me, you will now want to throw a pillow at me:). My Michael and I are still going to go to Europe in Sept. It is funny but has anyone watched "The Bucket List?" I love that movie and it does make one think. So one can always wait til one thinks it will be better but, in life, you just never know so one has to grab the opportunity because it may not come around again. I had to wax philosophy today so...sorry. I decided to do horses because they represent freedom and strength to me. I used glossy white paper and stamped them in black and used different coloured ink pads and with sponges I created the background. On that note I wish everyone a beautiful day or moment. Enjoy the aromas, sights and tastes and may cardmaking bring a great joy and peace to everyone.

Well I Believe this is from yesterday at 365 day card. You could only use a stamped image and a stamped sentiment. I got this lovely stamp from Michael for my birthday. I used watercolour paper and used my tombow markers to colour in the image and then the sentiment...well I do believe in that too. I thought it went well together. I then ripped the bottom and then watercoloured the edges.

OK this card was not on any list so I guess I cheated:) I made this card for someone at my work who lost a very dear friend to cancer and so it was in honour of her friend and their friendship together.

OK I had to do this card because you had this a a couple of weeks back. Use the image you provided and create a card. It was green, black and white. So many did such beautiful work-I was inspired but I was not able to get to it til now. I embossed white on white and then brayered black over top. Used green and stamped a bow and used black glitter embossing powder. I think the others did much better but I am OK with this card:)
