A Card To Cheer
Good day Crafters. I hope your weekend has started well. The card I bring you today was made for my dear SIL who has been going through a bit of a tough time recently, so I wanted to let her know that we are here for her and that she is not alone.
Here is the card, and explanation below.
I used my new stamp set from Stampin' Up called Beautiful You and stamped the girl on to a white panel. Then, I cut a 6x6 piece of patterned paper to cover the front of the card base and stamped the girl again on the scrap piece and fussy cut her dress out and adhered that to the stamped image on the white panel.
Next, I cut a few raindrops in the panel with a die from 'Weather Together' die set, also from Stampin' Up. I finished the panel with a sentiment from the same stamp set and hand drew some border lines around the image.
I mounted the focal panel on to the card front with foam for a bit of dimension, sprayed it with my home made shimmer spray, to add a little sparkle (anyone who needs cheering, needs a bit of sparkle) and that was the card done. It was gratefully received yesterday and I was happy I managed to brighten her day a little.
My day, didn't go quite as well! I waited another five hours for my mum's heart nurse, only for her to ring and cancel five minutes before the end of the five hour time slot she gives us! She asked if she could re-schedule, I'm afraid I lost my patience, and told her not unless she could give us a a specific time for the next one, as I had other things to do than sit around for five hours waiting for a no show!! She got my point, apologised, and said she would contact me next week about another appointment! Sorry, I'll stop moaning now, and wish you all a very happy weekend!
Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment. You are all appreciated more than you know!
If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.
