Here is this week's sketch:
Here is my So Sorry card:
I made this card for my dear sister Tina who recently lost 2 of her dearest friends. My sister is truly an Angel! She lives next door to a residential elderly care home & out of the kindness of her heart, she visits the residents frequently & takes them on strolls around the neighborhood, pushing them in their wheelchairs. Well, Sally & Nellie have passed away.To make the flower embellishments, I first inked up the Judi Kins Artist Signature stamp with SU Close To Cocoa ink, then cut the various sizes flower using the Spellbinders Blossoms die, crinkled them up for a vintagey look. I have to mention that the Judi Kins Artist Signature stamp is truly one of a kind! It features MANY famous artists signatures such as: Picasso, Monet, Gustav Klimt, etc....
That's all I have for today, hope you can play along! Please be sure to visit Jen & the SFYTT DT to see what these girls have created for inspiration: Amy Rohl, Amy Sheffer, Leigh O’Brien, Susan Liles, Kelly Lunceford. Thanks for stopping by! Be Sweet!
