Please Know That I Care...


My friend Donna posted this notice yesterday asking for help, so I got to work and made a card for Edith and mailed it this morning. I used 2 Memory Box butterfly dies called Vivienne & Darla, along with some SU! cut white stems and Razzleberry flowers from a SSS Bella Bloom die. The embossing was done and a SU! tulip ef (I forget the exact name) and stamped the "Thoughts & Prayers" sentiment with Razzleberry ink. Next I added some tiny clear gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty to the flowers and butterfly. For the final touch, I covered all the leaves and raised embossed designs on the framework with a Wink of Stella glitter brush. IRL it has a soft shimmery look, but it's hard to capture that with my camera.

I hope this card will bring Edith a smile along with a moment of encouragement when she opens this card, and I wish her strength to continue her brave battle into the future. Please read Donna's blog post and send a card if you can.

I'm sharing this over at the Snippets Playground #132.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful day ahead!

It's lovely, Carol, and sure to bring a big cheer up to Edith. Love this tulip folder and it's so gorgeous with the razzleberry colors on the b'flies. I'm waiting on the snail address. Emailed to the info given in Donna's post, but not heard back as yet. Would you mind sharing the address that you used? Thanks & Hugs too.
