Hello my bloggy friends. Do you ever have the occasion to make a specific card for a specific person or family that NEEDS to be done yet you find because of the emotion attached to the project it is difficult to complete? Am I making any sense at all???
Here is the situation. My brother and his wife recently lost a baby at 10 weeks gestation. It was very difficult for all of us. I could have sent them flowers as she LOVES gerber daisies… but I know as the card maker I should make her something special… I say her but it is something for the family!
So I started out with my desk looking something like this…
I really liked the patterned paper with the pops of orange yellow and light blue! I thought it would be a cheery card… then I saw a vid on how to make a 3d butterfly and thought a butterfly would be the perfect thing for a card for this specific occasion… so off I went to cut out my gypsy created inspiration card pieces and the paper messed up … it was all good I had another piece… it messed up on a different mat! UUUUGGGHHHH!!!!! Okay… at this point I stopped and prayed and ….
It all got better… I picked out new paper that still had pizzazz but was more toned down and I think more appropriate for the occasion…
and turned it into 2 “s-fold” cards! I used the cricut and the Art Philosophy and Gypsy Wanderings carts! It was super fun and easy after I took a minute to pray and everything cut out perfectly!
So when you get downhearted… do what this Bible verse says…. and Trust in the Lord!
Isn’t it nice when a deed you do for someone else winds up being a blessing for yourself!
Hope you find something good to share in your day! I would love to hear a praise report 🙂
I am sharing this card on ABC Challenge blog 😉 They want CAS cards and this is as CAS as I get so I hope they accept it! lol
