Thanks again for all the support, messages and cards I've received over the last few weeks, they've really helped me. My mum's funeral went well. The service was lovely, and I was so proud of my 19 year old daughter who got up and said a few words. A lot of people attended, and I saw relatives I hadn't seen for years. It's a shame it was in such sad circumstances.
Now I'm going to try to gradually pull myself together and get back to some sort of a normal routine.
Onto the challenge at C.R.A.F.T. this week now, where the theme is Father's Day or just men in general (but no kids cards, even though some men never seem to grow up!!)
For my DT card this week I've used a Dad stamp by Autumn leaves, stamped with brown ink and embossed onto blue Cored'inations card, and matted onto brown Bazzill, both cut with scalloped punches.
The top half has been embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder, and sanded to reveal the blue colour in the Cored'inations card, and the bottom half is the same Cored'inations card turned over to show the blue side, and punched with a Martha Stewart scallop punch. All the edges have been distressed with Distress Inks. The layers were put together on brown Bazzill, and grosgrain ribbon added, then blue Bazzill 6 x 6" cardstock.
Entries to C.R.A.F.T. by Wed at 8pm please, new work only.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
