Color me Happy! I have a new follower!! none other than the amazing Donna Mikasa of three umbrellas blog! Please join me in welcoming her!! : )
I wanted to share this card that I make for my Grandma. Actually both of my "real" grandparents have been gone for many many years but this dear 93 year old woman is a Grandma to many many people. She is full of love and live and loves Jesus more than anything. She is spry and healthy, lives on her own, and is one of the most remarkable women I have ever met. : )
I started with bright yellow cs from SU for my card base. Next I cut a shape from the SU "Lattice BigZ" from the patterned yellow and white paper. I glued it securely to a piece of white cs. Then I embossed it with a Anna Griffin embossing folder. ~ This folder is the one I grab most often when I want a vintage look or a quilted look. One thing I LOVE about this folder is the size! It is 5 x 7" and has the opening in the top of the folder so you can slide your cs out the top for a continuing design if you need a longer piece. Brilliant!! : ) Ok, I digress.... next I attached my white, embossed, cs to the yellow base and then added another shape from the same "Lattice BigZ" that I had carefully applied small foam tape to the back of..
I cut a couple of white "banners" and stamped my sentiment -the inside reads "Easter". Finally I attached a piece of pretty yellow ribbon and a pearl : )
The design for this card was based on the Unscripted Sketches challenge for this week.
I switched things around a bit but according to the rules I think this is ok. Loved the sketch!! Please consider joining this challenge which is made even more fun because it is the 5th Anniversary celebration of this great blog and there are even prizes : )
I guess I better get busy I have spent hours, literally, trying to get this post complete. I had a very difficult time uploading my picture for today's post. I actually started last night and found when I brought the picture in it was a hideous dark greenish brown color. I tried several things before I called my hubs to take a look and we learned that in order to fix it I would be forced to join Google+ arrrr!! Oh how I wish I had selected a different blog hosting site in 2007 when I started my blog. I don't think this picture still looks right but it is "ok" so I will continue to see if I can find out what is causing the remarkable change from how my pictures look in Photoshop until they appear on my blog. I prefer cardmaking to technology! LOL
