Love and flowers-2 cards plus Lost & Found
This is a special card making event because I am adding my little story of Love. This blog-hop is co-hosted by Arlee Bird at Tossing it Out and Guile Castillo-Oriard over at Quiet Laughter. You can join in also and write about love lost or found and it can be anything-fiction, poetry, a song. I combined my little story with a card (or 2).
Those beautiful brown eyes caught my heart the moment we met. I will never forget meeting one of the great loves of my life. There were no judgements, no arguments as we often lay together on the couch or in bed. Feeling the breath of my dear one on the back of my neck brought security to my heart and my soul. The memory of long walks we had, enjoying the sun's rays on our faces and the sheer happiness we each had as long as we were together. How I miss this and long for the return of something that shall never be but I take heart in my memories of my loved one knowing we shall meet up once more. Who could this be? Who has captured part of my heart? My beautiful Katie-girl, That's who. She was my black lab and I miss her.....
Color Throwdown- Kraft, yellow, Grey.
Glitter and Sparkle- Embossing-dry or wet
Eclectic Ellapu-Pink Team-Love
This is for my Katie and I will place this card beside her box. I used the sizzex machine to cut out the frame and the corners. I used my cuddlebug to emboss the yellow paper in this tartan design which I brushed a light brown on top. Katie (black lab) is stamped in black since she was black and beautiful. The frame-I used alcohol inks for a kraft look-I hope I got it. This card was done in love so I hope it meets everything. I signed up for this blog-hop at the last minute:)
Colour Q-Chocolate Chip, Wisteria Wonder, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and white
Craft Your Passion-Always Anything Goes
Nothing says love like flowers and so this card was done in honour of all of you bloggers out there who write fun stuff, movie stuff, history stuff, music stuff and, of course, card stuff. That's a lot of stuff! I stamped the flowers in basic black and coloured them with gamsol pencils. I took some white bits of cardstock and sponged lavender and brown and adhered it to a card along with the brown cardstock. I got some yellow ribbon and coloured it with some moss green. I fussy cut the flowers and the butterflies and used pop up dots to stick them on the card. I used wet embossing (this could go with Glitter and Sparkle challenge)-silver embossing powder- and heated up the nice saying by Shelley (one of my favourite poets). I added the white pearls and the corner stickers.
Have a beautiful week.
