I have been away for quite some time...Alot of stress but now it is calmer. My mom went to long term care in mid November, then Christmas which is the first Christmas without her at home, All the Christmas usual mayhem and then I got quite sick in January. I can say I am all better and my mom is adjusting as best as she can. My wonderful hubby organized my wreck of my craft room and I was so happy with what he did. I felt quite lost for a long time. The first card I used mainly pink, with some red and yellow and I used my cute hedgehog stamp for the animal antics which I embossed and coloured in with pastels. It is a combined Valentine and birthday card for a cutie of a girl named Torie. The second card is pure valentine with mainly red, some pink, and white but I had to add a little black ....I can't go all pink:) I think it fits perfect also for home sweet home. My husband and I have dealt with my mom for 2 years and we really did not have a home on our own for so long and now we do. I don't mean this to sound cold as I love my mommy with all my heart but it has been difficult and now we have our home with just us and it feels so nice. I had a sticker and I coloured the image with tombow markers and used reds and pinks and sponged the background but left some white. I used stickles in black for edging and mounted it on dark red and glossy black.
So great to see two cards from you on this post! These are terrific. I really like how you do the edges of them! :)ReplyDelete
