February's Challenge

Hello there,
I am participating in the February Card Chain Challenge. This is so fun!!! Not only do you get to make a card for someone in particular... but you also receive a card from someone... YAY!!! There are so many women participating, and as you know, we are all so different in what we like to make, that it's always a lovely surprise to receive a card from another crafter!!! If you have not participated in this challenge, you must try it!!  You won't be sorry, I promise!!!

So here's what I sent off to my friend, Janis Woolbright. We had been paired up before, and then I signed up to follow her blog, so I know her a little bit. And it was like meeting an old friend!!! What a treat!!!

This is a stamp of long ago from Lily of the Valley stamps in Australia. I have loved their stamps for a long time. They have all kinds of images but these with the little girls are just my favorite. It's like watching my kids play dress-up.

I colored the girls with my pencils. I find that easier than trying to water color all those small details. I also wrote a part of a scripture (Psalm 23) around the oval after I adhered it to the back. As you can see, the front of my card has a real cute cut out so that the girls are adhered to the back of the card and the image shows through. I also used an embossing folder on the front since it is just a white card.

The front still needed something else so I searched around for a large sentiment that would fit. I have a Silhouette Cameo that I use a lot for sentiments and I found this one that really fit. I had just used that "you are loved" on another card and thought it would work perfectly here also. Hunted around for a paper and a cute polka dot paper was just right... I also included in the envelope a little paper clip of a cat. Janis adores cats!!!

So there we are, 
A fun card for a "hope to meet someday crafter"
