Sorry about that. Not that anyone noticed! LOL. I haven't been creating at all. Tonight was the first night that I plopped my fluffy butt at my scrap desk in ages. Unfortunately, it wasn't to make a fun, happy card. Two of my aunts lost their dogs in the last week and a half. First, my Aunt Fleabites' dog Bear died from lung cancer. Then my Aunt Connie's dog Tigger's kidneys failed and she had to make the tough decision to put him down on Friday. I know from personal experience how hard it is to lose our children in the fur coats. I still miss my cat Boo (a.k.a. Wolhemina Pretty Face - don't ask), even though she's been gone since 2006. Anyway, I wanted to send cards to both of them, to let them know I was thinking of them and sending them a hug.
This is the first card, for my Aunt Freda (Fleabites).
Papers are Memory Box "Minuet". Image is a Magnolia stamp, stamped in black Memento ink on Cryogen and colored with copics. The ribbon is just some stuff I got at Michael's. I used baby blue liquid pearls because I couldn't find any light blue pearls in my stash (I know, surprising, right? Especially given that I have a HUGE stash).
For once, I didn't use an image I had precolored, so I can tell you the copics I used. Here goes:
Skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 for cheeks
Hair and puppy: E25, E31, E50
Shirt: Y15, Y11, Y000, RV23, RV21, RV000
Jumper: G24, G21, YG11
Shoes: E25, E23, E31
Now I have to make a card for my other aunt. I'm trying to decide if I want to use a stamp or a really cute pic I have of her dog.
I hope it doesn't take me forever to post again. I've got a crop next weekend, plus some events coming up for which I'll need cards, so you might actually see me again before too long!
