These horrific events seem to always bring out the best in people, and binds peoples friendships for life, so today's card seems to fit that comradeship today.
I started out trimming a piece of white card stock to fit a snow Hero Arts card, then taking the Classic Fabric Design stamp, I inked it with some Soft Pool ink and stamped over the trimmed white card stock. I wanted to soften the outside of the stamped image, so taking distress ink Tumbled Glass, I blended around the edges, setting this aside to work on the rest of the card. Taking more white card stock and the Four Flowers stamp set, I stamped up 2 of the flowers out of the set with some Soft Sand ink, trimming around each one and adding distress ink, Antique Linen to the edges of the flower to also soften, I adhered each of the flowers together using foam dimensionals. Trimming again more white card stock and adhering to the fabric design background, I stamped a sentiment from the, Thank You for Being My Friend stamp set. Adding some lace to the top of the trimmed white card stock and a small strip of blue card stock to give the white card stock a more finished look. Next, attaching the flower with more foam dimensionals, adding pearls to the centre of the flower and around the sentiment. Lastly, adhering to the front of the card using once again foam dimensionals.
Here is a close up of the card.
So before I finish up for today, I just wanted to leave a short note here from Judith of Jay Gee's Nook, if you happen to follow my blog as well as hers, she currently does not have power, due to the fact that where her and her family live were in the path of the category 5 cyclone. All of them are safe and are okay, but are unable to access any computers, hence, no orders can be issued out if you have placed one. Please bear with this situation, it just happens to be that this is out of her control and I am sure that when things get back to a little bit of normality then you will receive your orders.
Okay, so I think I am going to head off now and take a cold shower to cool down a little. We are expecting a change in the weather on Sunday, so fingers cross it cools down, just a little so that I can craft again normally.
Hope you are all either keeping cool or staying warm where ever you may be in the world.
