Thanks From The Bottom Of My Heart

Hello all!  As I mentioned previously, my fur-sister Lily just passed away.  My mom wanted cards to send to the veterinarian and to the crematorium.  They were amazingly supportive on an EXTREMELY difficult day.  

I used The Paper Studio Cardstock.  I took the large paw print from My Creative Time's Live Love Bark.  I randomly stamped them on the front panel and on the side of the envelope.  The envelope I wanted to make look like a dog had walked across it.  Each of the panels is 1/4" smaller starting with an A2 sized base.  The die cut bone came from the same set as the sentiment.  On the ones in the photo above I used Spectrum Sparkle Pens.  I did not end up using those, the glitter for once didn't look appropriate.  

On the inside of the card I used a sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Thanks A Bunch.  

The one on the left is the one we ended up using.  The one on the right was just layered on top without adhesive to show you both. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'm hoping to have more creations coming sooner than later.  It's all dependent on my pain.  

Until next time, happy crafting :)

Mother's Day

Hello all!  It's been awhile, looks like about 2 months.  A lot has happened in the two months, mostly I've been in a lot of pain.  Last month, unfortunately, we had to put my fur-sister Lily to sleep.  She suffered from a horrific disease called Cushing's.  I'm heartbroken, but know it was what had to happen.  It really stinks to be an adult human sometimes.  

But amidst all this, my mother means the world to me and I wanted to make her a card.  So, I told the pain to be quiet (didn't work) and I got to work.  I went with a pretty simple card, but still took some time to get the creative process to kick in.  

I used Simple Stories DIY stack because my mom loves bright colors, especially pink!  I used my Stampin' Up heart punch on SU Melon Mambo cardstock.  I then attacked it with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle, who doesn't love glitter and shine?!?!  

The banner and sentiment are from My Creative Time.  I stamped the sentiment in My Pink Stamper Snowflake White Ink.  

On the inside I used My Favorite Things Gift Card Grooves Dies.  The sentiment comes from My Creative Time's Tweet Me Stamp Set, same as the sentiment on the front.  This was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  I actually masked the stamp off as my son and I are giving one card.  As a side note, I love how the gift cards together say "Love Wendy's".   Cracks me up :)

Thank you so much for stopping by to see my creation.  I'm hoping to get back to creating soon, it all depends on treatment for my current predicament.  

To all you Mother's out there, Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!   

Until next time, happy crafting 😀
