The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....
I love Stamping and Scrapping anything that takes glue. I love creating in all aspects of the word!
I cherish my relationships both in my family and in the broader community. I love to be creative in my work and in play. My family inspires me and most of what I do is for them.
I am back with a couple of posts today.. I wanted first to post this card that I have made recently. There have been a few close friends of my family who have lost loved ones recently and I have been wanting to make a collection of Sympathy Cards for myself so that I have them in times of need. From time to time, we are called upon to comfort close family friends and relatives when they experience loss. We have all found ourselves in the stores looking for that special card that expresses our concern and offers words of comfort, or we crafters have been called upon to fashion a card from our hearts that depicts how we feel to those we care about. On this card I have used a sentiment from the JustRite Sympathy Collection, stamping onto Spellbinders Nestabilities Oval Large. On top of that I framed with a Spellbinders Labels 10, using two of them to fashion the frame. On top of the frame I cut a Spellbinders Beaded Oval out of the pattern paper which is a KaiserCraft pattern called Tattered Rose. The panel has another piece of the Tattered Rose collection and is matted with a solid color cardstock to match. The card was bordered using Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punches. This is the first of my "In Memory" collection and I will be back to post more as time goes on.
