Good Morning!! Today the sun is shining!!! 39 degrees but sunny. I will take it!! I hope everyone is well. I am still a little off. I suffer from IBS and diverticulitis so occasionally I have some terrible bouts. This too shall pass!
Today I have two card to share with you. The first one I made for the MOJO81 sketch this week. I also used CC213 (So Saffron, Close to Cocoa and Bashful Blue), MTTSC17 (use a new or old stamp you have never used before), and Challenge 25 of the Secret Crafter to use stiching on your card. I love the Elizabeth Bell images and seldom get the chance to stamp with them. I bought this Strawberry Tea (Sugar Nellie) from Funky Kits over 2 months ago. I was so excited to get it and just never inked it up! Lol!! I watercolored the image, papertoled it, and added glitter here and there. The dp is from SU's retired Parisian Summer and DCWV Nursery Stack. The flourishes are Bosskut and the leaves are MS Fern punch. For the stiching I used some fancy stiches on my sewing machine. The panel behind the image is dry embossed with the textile embossing folder (Cuttlebug). The butterfly is a blue moon charm. The flower is from Prima. Isn't is gorgeous?!! The saying says "Time is better when shared with a friend."
The second card is one that I made for today's sketch challenge SC223 and WT210 (To use stickers on your card). There is nothing stamped on this card!!! Lol! The flower is a Martha Stewart Flower. I tried to add as much texture as I could to this card since it is for my grandmother's 95th birthday this weekend. She is legally blind. When I go to see her, she touches my face to see me so I know she will be feeling this card as well. I used a lot of nesties, punches and textured a lot of the panels with the textile Cuttlebug folder (including the butterfly which I punched with a MS butterfly punch). The punch I used for a lot of the borders is from EK Success which Michael's now carries!! The yummy paper is Tea Party from SU. I decided to keep is monochromatic. I love the clean and elegant look it leaves. I decided to use a fancy stich on my sewing machine. What fun!! The lace is the last in my stash (boo hoo!). I also added the bling flourishes for some extra texture. I was going to put a message in the inside of my hodgepodge hardware but when I was experimenting with the placement, I really liked the look of the pattern paper and punching through the piece of hardware so I left it. The whole card took me less than 45 minutes! That is good for two reasons. One, I have to send it out TODAY! and two because I have to type up my homeschooling reports for my girls today (I don't usually procrastinate but I am this time!! LOL No more procrastinating. Time to get to it!!Can you help? Can you donate cards to our troops?
Sumi, a young lady whom I have befriended, buys and makes cards for the troops. She has summoned my help in meeting her goal in sending cards for the troops. She tirelessly puts time and money into donating cards to the troops. Her goal this month is to get 950 cards to send to Iraq (at the request of one of the commanding officers). These cards are not meant to send to the troops for themselves but rather ones that they can use to send to their families. Being away from their families they need birthday cards for their kids and wives, miss you cards, thinking of you, get well soon, baby cards... More boy or guy cards are needed since there seem to be more girly cards out there. The guys, I guess, prefer cards with a small message on the inside. Do you have extra cards that you would like to donate to a good cause? Can you help Sumi make her goal of 950 cards? If you have some extra cards around and can spare a few, or if you have time that you could donate some of your talents to making some cards for those who are serving our country, please send them to:
