It has been quite awhile since I have been here! So much has happened. On December 30th, after six months of tense waiting and anticipation, my husband recieved a call for a liver transplant. He is doing amazingly well only after ten days! We are thankful and humbled by the generosity of a family who saw through their grief and loss to give life to another. I would love to see someone create a stamp set that honors “Donating Life” for all those who give and receive this incredible gift! For those of you who want to learn more about keeping life going, here is a link to Donate Life NY and a 30 second video here.
We are moving slowly back to a new “normal” and with the much needed break from work, I was able to sit at my craft table and play! I decided to participate in the Color Me Creative Challenge
featuring “retro” hot pink and black! Hot, hot, hot! Actually when my Mom first taught me to knit, my first project was a scarf that was hot pink and black- I thought of that all the while I was creating this card.
The digi stamp I used is Peace and Love Hipster by Saturated Canary.
I colored her with promarkers and copics and used the new RV’s for a change! The promarkers are great for working in very small spaces like her hair- those fine point snap on nibs
are great- they can make a line as thin as a strand of hair. Maybe copic will take a hint!! I also used various Spica pens on the layers under her pink skirt. They gave some sparkle and also were easy to get color into those tight spaces! Paper is Cryrogen Iridescent White by Paper Temptress
. Black/White dot DP is DCWV La Creme Stack, Pink Hearts Glitter from my stash and pink and black cardstock from Paper Trey Ink Perfect Match pack.
The sentiment is computer generated and the lovely rose is from two dozen beautiful roses sent to me by my selfless and wonderful sister-in-law! Flowers and lace are from WOC
. My hippie gal got a bit of Glossy Accents and Deco Art Glamour Dust on the garland in her hair. Thanks again for all the love and support over the past few months!! Glad to be back!
