I watched Lucy's video demonstrating how she so expertly adds stitching on her cards. I really tried, but I have an inexpensive machine that seems to have a mind of its own sometimes!
Anyway, I knew I wanted to use purple, but my original plan was butterflies! Don't know how flowers happened instead!! My favorite parts of the card are the twine and my idea to put dots of acrylic enamel by Ranger to serve as the "bumper" to enable the front of the card to stay in place. The stamps are Hero Arts, the patterned paper is Basic Grey.
Now, can you guess what this string of names is? Corbin, Cooper, Campbell and Graeme.
No, it's not a law firm; not a brokerage firm; not a company name of any kind. These are the names of the infants I take care of at the daycare! Two boys, two girls! I do have a Daniel; I guess his Mom didn't read the Baby Names book!
I haven't posted in a while. Sorry about that! I have been busy making cards and will post more tomorrow. I need to get more timely with mailing cards out to people I know who could use a card right now.
It is twenty-four days until my husband leaves for his mission trip to Ethiopia! The immunizations are finally done. We have stacks of assorted "stuff" waiting to be put into suitcases. Each member of the team will be taking little toys, soccer balls, Frisbees, school supplies, etc. for the children they will be meeting. I told my husband it would be ok to bring back a few of the children! We are so blessed and have so much.
