Hello all! I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday! Hope you have been enjoying the lovely relaxing week between Christmas and New Years. We have been although sadly my Ariel has been sick. Hubby just took her the doctor and she has Scarlet Fever now too. She hasn't been feeling all that well and had a fever but whenever I asked her what hurt, your throat, your ears she said no she just didn't feel that well. We thought she had what her cousins did, a fever that turned into a cough.
I have a thank you card to share today. I made this for my mother's coworker who gave her the tickets to the Nutcracker ballet I took Ariel to on Tuesday. Which she just loved (even though she didn't feel well she didn't want to go home and sat happily through it all), I forgot to mention that it was a ballet. In my city we have a world renown ballet company! The nutcracker was magical, oh the costumes! We were so blessed to have been given tickets that I really wanted to make sure to make a card for her.
A pretty simple card but one that I think shows off the beauty of the poppies. I stamped and colored them in with my pencils, when I color on the kraft I color quite hard to give it a rich color. I added pearls that I colored black with a sharpe. I swept the sides with my white pigment ink by Colorbox which I think adds so much! I am entering this into two challenges the last day for the Hero Arts, one theme was thanks. And the Cute Card Thursday challenge (cute name!) which is thank you cards!
At the beginning of December I organized a Holiday Card Exchange at my favorite online group, the Hero Arts Flickr Group! Here is the card I made for Linda:
And than I was floored when I received this in the mail from Marilyn!
WOW! She sent me not only a Christmas card but a birthday one too! And wow love her cards, so beautiful and works of art! And such wonderful crafty goodies and a beautiful tea towel and pot holder! I had been wanting a Christmas one! :>
That's it for me today! Off to finish supper!
