I talked to my Mom today. She is in a nursing home awaiting the time she can go home and be with her doggies and my Dad.
I want to share more of a tribute to my Mom tomorrow, but for now, I am showing you a before and after card that I used for today's SCS sketch challenge. The card to the left was a set of quick note cards I tried (unsuccessfully) putting togeter as a git set for a friend.
These cards are even plain for a "plain and simple" card, which is what I normally prefer. Today's sketch was perfect for this image, though, so I pulled one flower off, and transformed it into this card. I was able to use several new punches that I didn't even own back when I made this set. The left side of the flower is accented by Martha Stewart's arch lattice punch, the little corners are a punch from EK success, and the butterfly is another Martha Stewart punch. The butterfly was accented with tiny pearls, as well as the little corner punches. Today I was "popping pearls" all over the place!!
I found a poem that was shared by Ellen Hutson, and I just loved it, so I copied it for the inside sentiment and wanted to share it in my next post!
