The rain and clouds do not seem to give me a break so these photos are not too good, not to mention my usual complaint that I have NO light in this house!!!!
The bottom part of this card looks the same as my table but it is not....... arrrrr.... it is Scarlet Jewel with a text stamp that I just got on Ebay from SU. I have so much of this ribbon it is crazy so I wanted to try and come up with one of the cards we will send for Christmas. I try to do all the cards and then mass produce. My intention was to use this ribbon 2 years ago for Birth Announcements for baby Ava and I had it all cut and ready but needed a photo, sadly we lost Curt's mom a few days before Ava came and I never made the announcements.
There is brown scallop under the ribbon, it looks really nice and for sure I will make maybe 10 more of these. I also used a Gold gel pen to highlight the pinecone.
I would have tried to wait for a nice day but that is not suppose to come until the weekend and my time for doing blog posts for a few weeks / month is coming to an end. Any vols to help me unpack ??
This is a bookmark I made this morning after my PTI box arrived. I am putting this with the gift that was in my last post. She is an avid reader and her mom would always tell me how she falls asleep reading so I thought this would be perfect.
I love how this turned out. When I was thinking about the sentiment I was going to use I thought it needed something around it so I thought about the small die from 2 for Tea and then I thought that I needed a layer for that but I did not want it to hang over the edge ...... enter scallop die and felt ....... it matched up perfectly so I layered the felt between 2 bookmarks and took out the ol sewing machine. I also used that same stamp from SU for the background on the front and the back. The blue bead is a Greek Evil Eye that one of my Greek friends brought back while she was visiting family. I have one I wear all the time and thought I would share this one with this sweet young lady.
Thanks for stopping by today and off to do some more packing.
Do you feel my STRESS ??
