I hope you all had a great weekend! Sorry for not posting on Friday, the day was busy celebrating my son’s 15th birthday! We didn’t do too much, just had some cake and presents and then I made his favorite dinner Salisbury steaks. He even deemed it a a worthwhile event enough to take a picture with me, which these days as a teenage boy is a rare occurrence! Somewhere over the last year he legitimately grew taller than me...which really isn’t hard to do since I’m not exactly a tall person!
Ok, so on to the card for today. I made this card for a dear friend who lost her furry family member last week. It’s always hard when we have to send our beloved pets over the rainbow bridge. She has a 4 boys who will surely miss him so very much so I wanted to make the card with some bright vibrant “boy” type colors so I chose a red, blue, green and yellow palette. The stamp set is from Great Impressions Stamps and I stamped it with black ink from Simon Says Stamp, and then used some Copic markers to fill in the hearts. I covered a few of the hearts in glossy accents as well. I heat embossed the little paws on the edge of the card with some platinum embossing powder. I added a little personal touch with the “RS” in the small circle on the left which are the initials of the pet.
That is all for me today. I am trying out a new photo technique. I hope you like the new picture styles and I hope you all have great evening and I’ll be back in a couple of days!
Lots of challenges for this card today!
