I Care


Welcome to a Friday where we show off some of our favorite sets from the past.  Today we're going to show off creations from A Year in Flowers - 1, 2 and 3.  These are some of the most perfect flower sets, a flower for each month and the perfect size and scale for cards.  A number of us played with A Year in Flowers 1 today and this gorgeous crocus image.  


I stamped on Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black, then trimmed it out with Flourishes Classic Pierced Classic Window Die.  I sponged some Memento Lulu Lavendar ink inside of the die, after I had coloured it up with Copics.  I framed behind the image with a Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals die in Flourishes Color Made Easy Crocus Collection of cardstock.  



I've finished the design with some Edgeabilities "ruffles" cut from the Emerald Coast Collection of paper, with a little Tag and some pretty bling, a little seam binding bow.  The little sentiment is from our recent Inside and Out - Just Because set.  

So... my husband is still in the hospital.  There have been numerous complications since his surgery to remove his spleen.  An infection source we could not pinpoint, a new procedure to get ride of where we finally thought the infection was coming from, some improvement but still fever.  So we're not there yet.  The past 10 days have been really challenging.  We've been really cared for by friends and our Church, so we're so grateful, but really worn out.  So, I'll keep things short today.  

Check out the rest of the beautiful design team girls today....

A beautiful image beautifully presented. Love your cool blue and lavender color combo. Just the way it feels when the crocus push up out of the ground. So lovely! I'm sorry to hear about your husband. What a unpleasant surprise on top of his injury. Wishing him a quick and easy recovery. Take care, Christine!
