This is a Mother's Day card currently on it's way via mail (actually, hopefully it's arrived...) for one of my best friends.
It's just obviously a simple card, but I was hesitant to go over-the-top. She just lost her husband, and her kids lost their dad... I just wanted to recognize her commitment to her two kids. You guys know what I mean? I try not to over-think situations like this... I just thought if I kept it basic and beautiful, then it would be just that. A simple recognition.
I'd like to share this at the current Crafting By Designs- May AG... though I'm not a digi user... I just like to share on AG's. I love to look at AG challenges because you end up with such a variety of projects. It's like a little sample of the crafting population!
Supplies and notes:
- The circles were scribbled with a Zig Emboss Writer and heat-embossed with Ranger EP in Princess Gold
- The gorgeous hearts were made by dripping Adirondack alcohol ink in Mermaid and Rust plus gold mixative onto a piece of photo paper, then splashing it with Ranger blending sol'n. I then dabbed at it with a baby wipe. OMG, it's too pretty. I really wish the pix did it justice. If not, try alcohol inks on photo paper yourselves... glorrrriousssss
- I used a Fiskars heart punch. (I have more hearts left over-- you'll see them again...
- Should I have rounded the corners??? Hmmm...
That's it! I used a gold Sharpie inside and wrote a nice sentiment about how lucky her kids and dogs are to have her for their mom! They are! :)
