I have a friend who is also going through a really tough time right now. She's just had some troubles these last month that really tug on my heart strings, whereas our issues at our house have been health related, we aren't dealing with grief and loss.... Those are so much more painful than a kidney stone or a cracked rib. I've had her on my mind, and I've been praying for her. Sometimes, though, it's nice to just do something kind for someone else, so they know how truly they are loved. I can't bring back what my friend has lost, but I can let her know-I'm in her corner! :) So, I wanted to make her a card. I used my "Blue Skies" stamps from Verve. And a pad of coordinating papers called "New Leaf" by First Edition Paper.
Recently reorganized my embellishments and its helped me a ton in finding things! I have all my tags together, and all my pockets, etc are in an adjacent compartment. This is a really old tag and a mini paper bag. For the back drop I decided to layer up a bunch of banners. I used dies from Lil' Imker and TCP to make them.
The final touch was some rick rack trim and a few MME candy dots. I love me some candy dots! Seems like they go on everything I make lately!
Well, I'm hoping to get my project done for TCP Tuesday this coming Tuesday, it's a really fun challenge and I've been really missing my crafty time! I also have some 50+ scrapbook pages to share with you, I just need to get the posts written!
Thanks for popping by crafty peeps. See you soon!
