Been so busy that it took 2 weeks to complete the cards. How they turned out is completely different than I intended. They were done so I could release stress, my mom has Alzheimers, Seizures and TIA. We finally have all the medications and diagnosis done but now we are trying to handle the changes to all of our lives.
To bring some joy into it, my mom's mother, (my grandmother) is coming with my Aunt and Uncle from NV. My grandmother will be 93 years old while she is here! My Aunt loves to craft and my Uncle loves 'honey do' lists, they are staying at my place, yeah! My grandmother will be staying with my mom to help her out and keep her company. We are truly blessed with a great family.
Thanks for letting me vent a bit, here are the cards I made recently.
I am having camera issues so the coloring is off as you can see. I made a choice this month to purchase more Copic markers with my money, eventually I will have to purchase a new camera, but crafting is first, LOL.
I made the tags first just playing around with my scraps and many butterflies, then I saw a Maggie opportunity for a card and put her above the tags.
Above is a closer look at the tag portion of the card. Below is another version of the card. I focused on green and yellow spring colors, after all March was definitely spring here in MN.
This tag and card is my favorite out of the 2, I used Melissa Frances crepe paper fringe on the top and covered Tilda's legs. The stamp and sentiment is from Stampinup. The other tags and butterflies are all from Papertrey Ink. My flowers are mixed up and I do not know which vendor they are from, sorry.
The papers are from my scraps of Pink Paislie and Prima.
My intention is to bring fun and joy to people who look at my cards and hopefully humor but sometimes life isn't that way and for some reason it feels good for me to share what affects my daily living. Please know that I do not seek attention but sharing can be a healthy thing for me as someone may have a better way of working with difficult situations. We all learn from each other, by art or heart.
Wishing you all joy and peace this week.
