Today I have a quick card to share with you. I've been having a great amount of loss lately with friends and friend's friends. It's amazing how one day you can be here and the next, your gone. Remember to take time and tell your family, friends and everyone else you can think of how much you love them. When you find yourself thinking of someone you haven't talked to in a while, pick up the phone and give a quick call. Make sure you say "goodbye" as you run out the door and tell them how much you enjoy their company. It's only takes a second out of your day, for tomorrow they just might not be here....
The sentiment is from Kandrewdesigns.com from her
I pop dotted it to the same color background.
I made the stick pins and love how they turned out.
The ribbon had stitching in the center of it, but when
I attached it to the card it was too yellow...I then used
my red bic marker and colored every other stitch.
A friend of mine recently gave me a bunch of brass
stencils. I researched and found a way to use them
with my cuddlebug. I had to play around with
come different sandwhiched ideas, but I love the
way it turned out. Then I also used a bit of
metallic rub ons to highlight the embossing a bit.
The other day I showed you my reorganizing of my craft room and I got a lot of positive comments on it, but I also got asked how I store my scraps??? I am so sorry that I forgot to touch upon that. This is where I keep them:
The bins next to my cutting station are my scraps,
very handy after I've cut something.
This works well for me. I've kept them
mostly within one color but I did combine
yellows w oranges and black w silver and gray
I do keep pattern and solid together also.
So far I have had no problem in doing that.
In fact, when I am in the scrap hunt mood its
nice to have pattern and solid together to
coordinate right then and there together.
Hope this has helped to clarify some things.
Thanks for coming over today and I hope to see you back real soon.
