My inchie card
My time is quickly coming to an end. I leave for home this coming Saturday. It's almost like she knows. She has just been so loving with me. Giving me hugs and kisses out of nowhere.
She loves all thelittle games I play with her and she never gets bored. We play the same games every day and she gets just as excited when I tell her what we are going to do. I have so many memories of her laughter, facial expressions and the words she is learning.
But, life goes on and I do have a home in Pittsburgh and a husband who misses me a lot. You never know if an opportunity will open up like this again. My son and daughter-in-law lost their nanny which is why I am here now.
They went out to dinner tonight for a little time together. Phoenix Daisy is asleep and I am relaxing in front of the TV.
With all that said, here is my card for today. I made this one for an inchie challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
For my card I used the dogwood image from the Marks Finest Papers set dogwood blossoms. Colored the image with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and did some fussy cutting. I popped them up over my inchie squares. The squares were cut using 1 1/4 & 1 3/8 square punches.Added some ribbon treatment with Stampin-Up's pear pizzazz seam binding and a pear pizzazz brad.
The designer paper I used for my squares is from the Stampin-Up "sweet pea" collection.
I completed my card by adding a glittery butterfly & pearls to the corner.
Well, that's it for today so until next time........God bless.
Some other challenges:
1. Totally Gorjuss blog has a "something new" challenge. I used a new brad and the glittered butterfly is new.
2. Cute Card Thursday has a pink & green challenge.
3. Southern Girls Challenge wants us to use die-cuts or punches. I used punches.
