Hi everyone! I thought we were going to be lucky enough to get another round of snow Tuesday, but it turned out to only be a dusting. It was still enough to let me go into work late yesterday morning so I spent some extra time with the dogs in the field next to our house before going to work. They love the cold as much as I do. Of course it would have been a lot more fun if we could have built a snowman!
Tuesday was the Teaprty challenge at Splitcoast stameprs. Our cards are to have gardens on them and they are going to a lady who was on a spur of the moment vacation in New York with her husband when he suddenly suffered a heart attack and died. I just can't imagine being in a strange place all on your own with such heartache!
Anyway, I used Diana Garrison's wonderfully whimsical Garden Party image available at Squigglefly for my card. the sentiment is from another of Diana's images called Daisy Pops.
I colored the image with Copic markers and chalked the sky. I then used a punch I've had for a while and never used to make the grass. I punched it out of some designer paper. I added a little bit of glitter to some of the flowers just for sparkle.
The edges are border punches that I punched and then attached to the card. I kind of like the punches in the same color as the card. My card has already gone in the mail to this woman, and I hope she gets a mailbox full of cards and loves them all!
Have a terrific Thursday!
