I had a productive morning today! I finished up 3 cards of which 2 I can show today. The first is from a pretty sketch over at Double Dutch. My distress style has been altered to just roughing up the edges as opposed to inking the edges. I think because the colors of Spring are so soft and pretty I can't bear to darken them with the ink. (LOL)
I have made this card for my MIL. Her recovery from her aneurysm was coming along well but she had fell and broke her hip. Because they had to do a hip`replacement they had to put her under and all the memory progress they had made was gone when she woke up! Isn't that just crazy ~ it has been 9 months! Anyway I like putting cute little girls on the cards to represent my daughters and these Sugar Nellies by Elisabeth Bell are just so cute.
Paper: We R Memory Keepers
inks: distress inks, twinkling H2O's
Accessories: Raffia lace, pearls and brads ~ Michaels, flowers ~ Prima
This card was made for Cute Card Thursday. The theme is family affair. My oldest daughter has her b-day next tuesday so I thought it was a perfect time to make her card. She will be 7 years old! (Sniff) I can't handle this!! (LOL) Anyway her favorite colors are blue and green so I thought she would love these papers. Also she loves the Elisabeth Bell images from Sugar Nellie and I just got this one so it was perfect as well!
I used some more raffia lace on this one. I finally found some thanks so much to Rach's link! (Thanks so much ~ you have no idea how bad I have wanted some of this!)It is very thin and easy to work with!
Ink: Distress inks, glitter pen
Accessories: Raffia Lace, flowers ~ eBay
