Making a bright get well card, for an octogenarian having knee replacement! I made the base on this post here - was White heat embossed Hero Arts Dandelion background Stamp, Ink Resist done with Distress inks. Her fav. colour is anything really bright, thought this one worked well! Impression Obsession “Get Well Soon” die, a sample test run on middle, layering done with SU colours, have few sheets were perfect colour, plus two spools of ribbon suited too, was really blessed! Image at rear made few weeks ago is ready for next card.
Second desk working still on the Lawn Fawn Puffin anniversary card, on right are two trial runs with Stampscapes background stamps. On left assembling on actual heart base, the white dish held tiny weeny fish + hearts coloured + cut out, tad fiddly but can never justify expense of dies! Front black cardstock snippet, figuring greeting strips.
Loved this card, here’s end result. Stampscapes background. All other cards with this set had icebergs and such but puffins live on cliff tops not icebergs hence my background, researched scenery first. Happy anniversary from Sweet ‘n Sassy Floral greeting set.
Stitched heart dies for image base, at bottom of card - triple scoring with more hearts around greeting. Loads of snippets here, so off to Snippets Playground.. wonder if it's puddle jumping there too?!
This is scrap card from iceblock packet, embossed TH Dot Matrix EF set, used Versamark and Perfect pearls or Magicals by Lindy's Stamp Gang, Dairy Milk chocolate.😋
Male card for friend's dad birthday next month. He’s same age as my dad would’ve been. The stamp set is CCS, and was ink block background, which was bit messy. So die cut with wonky rectangle set, and coloured it with Tombow watercolour pens to cover messy bits, restamped images and spritzed with glimmer mist, finally happy!
This card is of PB poppy Gold EP stsmp, on brusho background with gloss card, painted with shimmer watercolours.
Last card is a direct case of THIS last year, love Ranger Rock Candy background added to white card for loads of crackly glimmer, what a great verse, Rest in the Lord, AND WAIT patiently for Him Ps 37. That's the hard bit.
It’s for dear friend who’s 70, and she loves purple, shimmery and butterflies.
Now to Aussie shots, two of our beach and Sandhills, this How I remember it as kid here, love seeing it. ❤
Pretty flowers with native grasses up along banks.
I’m sure you’ve heard but here’s summary from local point of view.
Today, in NSW only 24 fires, almost all controlled. Map shows diff number because white are other incidents, trees down, vehicle fire, etc, blue are fires. At one stage for about a month were 160 fires in just NSW.
In first week Nov there were (map above) 16 emergency fires at once in our NSW north coast!! We were surrounded by them. [16 x Emergency = too late to leave, protect yourself, family, etc. in situ. Lots of prayer that night, had car packed. Will never forget it.]
Huge fire north of Syd. Wollemi Nat park fire (over 1,000,000 hectares, from memory), was deliberately lit Nov 2019, NOW out along with ALL fires in Blue Mountains. Also in Blue Mtns Jenolan Caves house saved from fires last month, had a flood yest.
Just like drought 1911 it was saved from fire, then flooded 24th Feb 1911.
History repeats - was manager's comment!
Praise for drought + fire relief.
Many inland have had some good rain BUT also many areas missed out so praying on for them!
May God bless mightily in physical rain in those places, but also spiritually in many hearts!
l do so very much appreciate you, haven’t quite caught up with all, hope to! 😊
