I used my birthday as an excuse to spend some quality creating time today. My sweet Mr purchased the Designer Edition of software for my Silhouette SD! So though I only tried it out briefly (want to spend a whole day exploring this after my folks have returned home – giving them quality time while here) Here are the last two cards, so this should catch me up until tomorrow.
“Make your sentiment stand out - whether it's large or small, make it the focal point of the card.”
So I chose to do this:
I could not resist – don’t know who this card is destined for but it will be fun to see! The paper was perfect for the sentiment.
Paper: Graphic 45 unique paper crafting. Domestic Goddess Collection Miss Manners
Sentiment: Elegant Word Art
I embossed the frame for the word art with a clear gloss powder. The tatted flower is my own pattern – finished off with a gem!
“Pick a highly memorable year in your life, and use that to inspire your card.”
So, I’m choosing 2011 – 2012 because this is the coming year, and each year I can’t imagine how much better life could get, but in the end I’m always so grateful for this exact season of my life. I believe this will be the best year ever. Being its my birthday today it seems completely appropriate! After all I was so absolutely spoiled by my friends and family.
I’m confident this year will be one of dreams fulfilled, hopes realized and loads and loads of love. Without love, it’s nothing, right?
This gem was recycled from a broken necklace given to me by a dear friend.
