Hi there! Hope you are all having a great holiday season and a very Merry Christmas to those who celebrated! It's Wednesday, so that means it's time for an all new My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club sketch challenge! Thanks to all who joined along ~ so many pretty cards! For additional inspiration from participating DT members, please be sure to visit the MFT Blog.
Here's the fun sketch that we are playing with this week:
This was not an easy card for me make nor an easy post for me to write. To keep a long story short, my 50 year young brother Albert passed away 2 days ago, Sunday, December 23rd so I made this card for my dear sister Tina who was very close friends with him. I have fond memories of my brother, mostly when we were young school age children but in all honesty, we were not close as the years went by and we both became involved with our own families and lives. Having been raised in a Catholic family of 11 children, there was so much chaos and commotion, I don't even know how my Mom kept our names straight! I will miss Albert and pray that he rests in peace and hope Tina finds comfort in receiving this card.
I stamped the pretty Daffodil image from Inspired By Flowers Set #1 using VersaMark ink on a piece of vellum that was cut using a Die-namics Rectangle STAX, Set 2 die, then heat embossed using fine white embossing powder. I layered the vellum on a Kraft die cut that was made using a Die-namics Postage Stamp STAX die.
I just love the beautiful detail in the daffodil:I finished the inside with another heat embossed daffodil along with another beautiful sentiment from Inspired By Flowers Set #1. I stitched on a die cut border that was made using Die-namics Postage Stamp Edge.
Be Sweet :)
