I’m going through a difficult time in my life. One might call it a midlife crisis on steroids, I suppose.
Anyhow, what has amazed me is how wonderful my friends have been through all of this. They have been so supportive — providing listening ears, shoulders to lean on and offers to do all sorts of things for me. I can’t seem to find the right words to say, but I wanted to publicly thank them for everything.
So, I decided to make a thank you card.
This uses one of the jumbo stamps from Stampendous. I colored it in with Copic Markers, cut it out and attached it to a card made with American Crafts cardstock and Prima papers. Then, I used Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear and some clear beads to add a bit of dimension and a touch of texture to some portions of the flower. They remind me of little tiny bits of dew.
Finally, I stamped the word thank you on a scrap of paper, cut it out and inked the edges with Distress Ink.
When my husband photographs my projects for me, he usually gives me two shots. One tends to show colors better and the other tends to show glitter, sparkles, gems and gloss better. So, here’s the other version to look at … click on either picture for a closer view.
I forgot to tell you how beautiful your card is. You are a true artist and such a special person.
You hang in there!
Awww Candy. What a beautiful card. Almost as beautiful as you, inside and out! Hang in there girl. Things will turn around and better days are coming. Loved ya!! sandy
I’m not sure what trials life has thrown at you, but somehow I knew it was something – and you’ve been in my thoughts. I miss ‘seeing’ you.
Candy…the card(s) are absolutely beautiful. Your cardmaking is a wonderful outlet and that you share them with us is also a blessing. Thank you for sharing.Marie
