Hang in There

I'm a little behind in sharing this card.  I made it for my uncle before he was moved to hospice.  

I love this cute little elephant and teddy.   I colored a couple more but have yet to put on cards. 

I found the star in my stash of left over die cuts.  The 2 small pieces of patterned paper were also left overs that I kept just in case they would be useful some day.  The CAS design of this card is a little out of my comfort zone but I like the way it turned out.

Thank you for stopping by!

Sending Love

 It has been a hard couple of weeks for my family.  While navigating medical emergencies and several other events, I also lost my uncle/god father to leukemia.  I made this card to send to my aunt.

I used the eclipse technique for the word "LOVE".   The video from Jennifer McGuire was very helpful in learning and using this technique.

I originally was coloring the floral heart digital stamp as a way to take some time out for myself.  I used some of the techniques I learned in classes from Kit and Clowder, but I mostly wanted to color and try to relax for a little while.

I liked the way the flowers turned out (although the cast shadows are a little dark) so I decided to use the image for a card.

Thank you for stopping by!
