Always on my Mind
It's a quiet evening over here, Morgan is off down the street at a friends, Jay and Brett are watching Star Wars (sounds are reverberating around the house from the surround sound!), so I hit SCS to see what was happening over there.
Low and behold, Bethie had already posted Sunday's Featured Stamper Challenge. So I played quickly. Tomorrow is a big football day, maybe that's why. We are having a few over for the game and munchies, it will be fun!
Now the past few FS cards I've made I have mass produced. Even though I created this card rather quickly, it is a one of a kind for a one of a kind dear friend. I'm not going to go into specifics, just to say she's dying and hasn't much time left.
Unfortunately due to several reasons, I cannot make the trip to see her, so I plan on writing her a letter to express how she has impacted my life and made me a better person for having known her.
Sometimes cards come together so quickly and come out exactly like envisioned - I love when that happens. That is what happened tonight, this card was made in about 15 minutes because I just felt it when I looked at the inspiration card. I knew what I wanted to do. Even though my final interpretation is quite different from the original, the feel of the card is there. The card is pretty self explanatory, however, I will say the bird was kissed with Canvas and then stamped, to give it the same feel as the patterned paper.
She is always on my mind, and forever in my heart.
