Hello - hope you're having a crafty day! My heart goes out to everyone on the West Coast, but especially all my friends, who have fires nearby - so scary!! Thinking of you often and hope this ends soon!!
I'm sharing a couple of cards - first up, a "thinking of you" made with some Spellbinders products:
I used the letterpress panel I had made here. Since it was on watercolor paper, I put a bit of yellow wash in the center, then added ephemera from the July Spellbinders kit. A foiled sentiment I made in my maiden run with the Glimmer machine finished off the card. I sent this one to Darnell's friend Verna - hoping she's doing ok with all the smoke in the air out in California!
Next, a sympathy card with a Spellbinders flower set I just rec'd. Had to laugh, no more than opened the package from Spellbinders when I spotted the set on clearance at my Hobby Lobby! Oh well, I guess the shoppers in my town aren't into foiling! I did pick up a couple other sets practically for free - will use those in future. 😀😀
I think my foiling turned out better on these flowers than my first attempts but on the leaves I had some stray foil that I trimmed out. I had made the flowers but didn't have a card for them until I learned of a friend's passing. We'd lost touch over the past 10 years but Faye & I were close back in my 30's and sang in a quartet together when I lived in Wisconsin. Faye worked as a nurse and was always so kind and compassionate. I remember a story her hubby told (he predeceased her) about a car trip they were taking. They came upon an accident and Faye made him pull over so she could help - no mask, no gloves, she just went right in there until the EMTs arrived. That was Faye to a tee - RIP!
That's it from me for today. I'll add the sympathy card to Darnell's NBUS challenge since my foiled flowers are new. Thanks for hosting NBUS Darnell - I need it!!
Thanks to you for stopping by and I hope you'll check back tomorrow when I have a special Christmas card to share!! Hint - it's a "kick off" to a new challenge....
