Happy Friday All!! I hope everyone had a good day!! Today was very busy. I took a trip with my two girls to see my 94 year old grandmother who lives 2 hours away. She amazes me!! While she is legally blind, she is still independent and living on her own. We had a great visit! My girls love her so and she them. Sometimes they have a hard time understanding her because she reverts back to her native language, Dutch.
Prior to my trip, I was able to complete the limited supply challenge hosted by Judy. I will be sharing that card with you later on in this post.
My first project is the treat basket for Monday's TLC213 challenge. I love to do projects that are different than my norm so this was a lot of fun! I used Penny Black's Easter Egg Hunt stamp for the image on the front of the basket. Since the actual image has 2 bunnies, I cut it out and used only one. The tail is made with liquid applique. The dp is some leftover Crate Paper from my scraps bin. I love the colors!! I added a dry embossed strip (Swiss dot-Cuttlebug), some blue pearls, and ribbon to the handle.
My second project is a card I made today for LCS213 hosted by Judy. The challenge was to limit your embellishments but to use only black and white on your card. I typically add some other color around the borders if I am using black and white so this was different for me. I decided I would use this challenge to make some thinking of you cards for friends going through a difficult time. I chose this comforting verse from Our Daily Bread Design's Fishers of Men set. The flowers are from the Sing to the Lord set also at Our Daily Bread Designs. The butterfly next to the verse is from SU- God's Beauty. The dp is from Walmart and it is called Best Occasion. The pad has some beautiful black and white dp perfect for weddings and many other occasions.
The lace is one of my frugal buys that I figured I would put away until the right project came along. I think it dresses up the card a bit. The scalloped border along the bottom is from EK Success. The pearls are now available at ODBD. I hope this verse gives as much comfort to my friends as it does me.
I hope you enjoyed today's projects. Since I have been stamping everyday this week, I am afraid I am going to go through withdrawal over the weekend when we leave for Boston. I am very much looking forward to getting away though and out of the same routine for a bit. Enjoy your weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!!
