Comfort, Strenght, Hope...

This card was made for my "glossy card" class and it is using a crayon resist technique that is super easy! I used this wonderful clear stamp set from Stampendous and stamped the words in black StazOn ink, then stamped the leaves and let dry a few seconds. Using a clear or white crayon, color in the leaves. Then stipple or sponge on the cranberry and lettuce Adirondack inks diagonally, when finished wipe with a paper towel and the leaves will pop! Layer this onto black and gold papers, punch three holes along the left side and add ribbon then layer onto white paper. On a cranberry panel, stamp the leaves from the set using galaxy gold Brilliance and mount to a white card. Add the circle stickers from Stampendous to two of the corners and you are done. This card can be used for sympathy, for someone with an illness or who has lost a job.


Now here is a picture of Melanie who recently got her braces off, look at those wonderfully straight teeth!
So now for the reason I haven't been posting recently. My MIL is in the hospital for the 12th day and is expected to be there for another 2-3 weeks. She has a bunch of problems that came about quickly and we are hoping she gets better. So we have been visiting her often and haven't had time for much else. Here is a picture of my hubby Paul and my son Greg visiting Gram.
Here in southern California we have year round school and tomorrow is Greg's last day of 7th grade, wow my baby is growing up! So tomorrow is his awards ceremony and he will be getting an award for a 4.0 gpa, we are sooooo proud of him!! Then he is off for a month and into 8th grade he goes in July.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you all have a great week.

Hey Jamie, Melanie is just like her Mom, beautiful young lady. My Mom was sick Easter, and it is so hard. You want to make them better, and you are so helpless. You can't make them better. My prayers are with her and your family.

The card is gorgeous. Beautiful bright but subtle colors, blended perfectly.

Great card Jamie. I hope all goes well for your mom. Ask your daughter in a month if she misses her braces. I did when I was a teen. My teeth felt like they were too big. lol

Wow, your card is just exquisite and so pretty! Your daughter is just so beautiful. How sweet she looks too! Sending well wishes to your MIL. She must be ill. Did she have a staph infection. My daughter had one and she was very sick. Hope she is on the mend. I bet she can't wait to get home.
