We finally had some rain yesterday!! Boy do we need it here in northern California! It is so muggy today I just hope we can have a few more showers without the thunder and lightening!
The weather held up and I went to BBQ lunch with all the school age grandkids today to celebrate Grandparents day. They are all so stinkin' cute! No I didn't have 3 lunches but I did sit with the granddaughters and then ate lunch with Jakob and his buddies.
I'm excited to share that I will be teaching some card making classes at our local craft store Scrapper's Edge. My first class is in October. I just finished 4 samples for the class which I'm calling Build a Scene. You know I love to paper piece and I think this will appeal to both beginners and advanced card makers! I made 2 autumn themed and 2 winter themed scenes. I will share them here at a later time. They will feature Lawn Fawn (stamps & dies) and Paper Smooches stamps for this class. I'm so excited!!!
Today I am sharing a card I made a couple of weeks ago for a family that lost their 23 year old daughter. She was born with Cerebral Palsy and has been completely dependent for all of her care since birth. A sad time yes, but now she's free and with the Lord in a perfect body for the first time. So we grieve for ourselves but rejoice for this innocent one.
I've embossed the yellow panel and then blended white ink over the raised portion. The designer paper is from Memory Box (that I've been hoarding!), the paper flowers are Sizzix mini Tattered Flowers (movers and shapers line), the sentiment and leaf/branch die are Taylored Expressions. I've used Archival Jet Black ink and the button comes from my stash.
I'll be sharing this card at Word Art Wednesday #150 Anything Goes.
That's it for me today, thanks for visiting!
But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
