Charlotte, my neighbor across the street, has been very busy on my behalf. GULP!
She attends a local church that has “Ladies Night” on Fridays. The women get together and play games, have a pot luck dinner, and have fun. Charlotte mentioned the cards she and Hugh made last week and the fun she had when she attended Wednesday nights prayer meeting. Last Saturday she invited me to attend the upcoming Ladies Night and it sounded like fun.
Charlotte called me yesterday morning to let me know the ladies are all excited to make Valentine cards for the Nursing Home. WHAT!? Well I had to get in gear and get something going.
These are the cards I have designed for the ladies to make. Can you believe it? The “Love card” has GLITTER! The cards measure 4″ x 5″ (4″ x 10″).
The Filled With Love stamp set is sold in a bundle until January 24, 2011. Wood mount or clear mount sets are available.
Texture is added with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. From the Occasions Mini catalog the patterned paper used is Springtime Vintage, there is 100% cotton fabric that matches this paper, also. The card bases are made from Ridinghood Red 12 x 12 card stock and Basic Black 12 x 12 card stock. Scallop Edge Border punch is used on the “Love” card, and the 3/16″ Corner Rounder punch is used on the “Heart” card. The inks I’ve used are Basic Black and Real Red Classic inks. Ribbons used are 1/8″ Real Red Taffeta and 1/4″ Basic Black Grosgrain. A touch of sparkle on the “Love” card comes from Dazzling Diamonds glitter. The heart brad is from my stash.
I am looking forward to this evening with the ladies. I’ll finally get to try out my teaching skills to someone else besides myself 🙂
On a much sadder note, my Upline – Gayle – has been spending her days since Christmas Eve in the ICU where her husband is being looked after and treated for a brain hemorrhage. I will spend a couple hours with her this afternoon before she goes back to her post beside her husband. My prayers are with the both of them.
