My husband's team at work have started a staff appreciation program at work and he nicely volunteered me to make the cards that go to the staff that is chosen every month...lol....I really don't mind. The first two that were chosen were their eveing supervisors for all their support over a very difficult time. Here are the cards that I made...not very creative this week, still not feeling the best. One is my take on a card that my friend Val made and the other is a take on a card I did in a class last year.
This is a project that I made for my Mother in Law for Mother's Day. I know it is past Mother's day but we haven't seen her yet, she lives in New Brunswick. Jim and I got married last summer and we have never done off some pictures of the wedding as of yet. So....I thought a great Mother's Day gift would be a brag book for her to look through. It is very basic as she is not crafty at all but will appreciate the gesture and the pictures!!!!!
Hi Everyone, it is another rainy day here....this is three weeks of rain for us, I swear I think we are going to get moldy.
My friend Val mentioned a Recycling challange that Stampotique Designers Challenge is hosting. It is any stamp and the project is to repurpose items that were headed to our landfill. This is my take on that. I used a recycled box, newspaper, paper bag, bottle cap, ribbon from a package, and a flower that was adhered to paperwork from my hubbies last staff meeting. This stamped image is 'recycled' as well...it mimics old paperwork or a postal markings. I used Memonto ink and Tea Stained Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I cut the tag out with Tim's # 8 tag die.
A quick post with a card I made up this morning. It is a cool day here, damp and dreary. I needed something to cheer me up. This little Magnolia Stamp was me trying my hand with my Copics. It is 'OK' to say the least...lol....I stitched the card with my WAMK Sew Easy and Cross Stitch floss, some scrap ribbon and a birthday sentiment from Inkadinkado stamp set that Michaels had on clearance several weeks back. I finished the card with some purple Scribbles (dimensional paint).
I am not good with good byes. I have a tendency to avoid the person that is leaving...I know that is terrible but it is true. I can chat on the phone, text, message, email but face to face is a no go. So, when my friend told me several weeks ago that her husband was being transferred to Quebec, I was devastated, to say the least. Though we haven't been friends for years, we have become very close. I decided that I wouldn't do my normal 'thing' and avoid her.....it was hard, especially the last week but I 'sucked it up' and was a 'big girl'...lol.....I said good bye to her (face to face) on Friday and gave her a card I made her.
This is the card, very simple with some brown satin ribbon and butterflies cut out of Kraft card stock.
