Giving Love and Support


Well, I mentioned in my previous post that I was going to dig around in my stash to figure out what I would be working on during Scrapbook Day - but then I read an email from a dear friend whose FIL is very, very ill. She and her husband know that I've been thinking and praying for strength and recovery for their father and their family, but I felt moved to make a card for them anyhow. This card utilizes the faux layering technique and was achieved by lots of sponging, torn post-it notes and a bit of masking with the tree and strands of grass around the deer silhouette. I wanted to have a lower border with a floral selection from Pocket Silhouettes, yet have another scene on the cardfront in addition to not having the bulk of additional layers, so the faux layering technique was the perfect choice. I'm very pleased with this card... perhaps it is a bit unusual, but to me, it conveys warmth, strength and serenity. I extended the floral border to the inside of the card with plenty of room to write some thoughts before giving them this card.


I will be back soon to post the things I make during Scrapbook Day.... I have no idea what I'm going to do yet, so I guess I'll close and poke around my craft room a bit. Take care, and let the ones you love know it, and that you are always there for them! See you next time.... :)
