Hello Friends, And Hello Weekend! Today is also World Card Making Day! Woohoo….like I need an excuse to make a card. LOL In honor of this day I am going to try and sneak sometime in to do just that! Are you up for the Challenge? I sure hope so! I can’t think of a better hobby, that I do, that brings me such joy and satisfaction, and can bring joy to others as well! I am so glad I found this niche many, many years ago! What would you do if you weren’t a card maker? I would love to know! Today over at Just Us Girls it’s word week, and our word is Sympathy! Unfortunately you always need to have a few of these types of cards laying around, and the older you get the more you need them. I also would like to welcome our newest JUGS Guest Designer with us for the month of October and her name is Julie Gearinger! Welcome Julie! Here are a few of my card details: I made this card a while ago and can’t quite remember exactly what or who suggested this technique or if I can explain it, but I will try. The idea is to combine to patterns together that wouldn’t quite seem to go together to make a background. So I decided after I used a sponge dauber to make my circle background, I would heat emboss some SU leaves over top. I actually think It turned out rather cool. The flowers are from Stampin UP and heat embossed on vellum and layered over an exact shaped flower punched out from craft paper. I love that effect! Added some tan lace, a Verve sentiment and some MS punched out leaves.
Please come on over to Just Us Girls and join us for Sympathy week and make a card in celebration of this great hobby of ours!! Take care, Nanc’
