And, here we slide into mid-week! This week is just one of those where I've had something nearly everyday so and it isn't slowing down. I do love it though!
Today's card is special. I made it for my friend Nancy. I didn't really want to make a sympathy card but I did feel I needed to make something so I compromised with a "forever in our hearts" card. The beautiful dogwood patterned paper is from the Curio paper pack by Basic Grey. Isn't it just gorgeous? The card layout is from the Verve Stamps: Viva la Verve! challenge for this week. The wonderful sentiment is from Verve and the butterfly came from a emblosslit. I placed a vanilla color piece of cardstock inside, sponged some cameo coral around the edges, and then placed another butterfly inside. The color of the patterned paper is really a coral type of color. I will also enter this into the Paper Sundaes challenge which is something new. Both the patterned paper and the sentiment is new to me on this card. Please note you can click on the card to get a better look at it.
I'm truly hoping that this will be a soothing card for her. I'm also hoping that God will help me put words inside that will soothe her heart a little.
On to some fun news! I made the Top 3 at Doodle Pantry Digital Doodles Blog! The challenge was to make something that either represented new or with something new. I made THIS card and entered it in the contest. I am absolutely honored to have been chosen as a top three! I now get to put the super cute badge on my blog! Fun!
Okay, I'm sure you've read just about as much as you can on my blog for today so I guess I'll stop typing now. Have a super fantastic day! See ya tomorrow with my very first, official post for McMahon 5 Designs!
