TE's Blast from the Past Blog Hop
Welcome to Taylored Expression's Blast from the Past Blog Hop! I had fun making this card... here in Southern AZ we don't get a lot of leaves changing color so of course I had to put some on this card. This month our theme is "Thankful". I used TE's "Much Appreciated" for the sentiment which I inked up in "Brilliance" cosmic copper and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then framed with in shinny green paper with QuicKutz "frame" (REV-0090).
I had a hard time getting a good picture of this card because some of the paper had glitter, some was embossed with fuzzies, other paper was shiny while some of it was just plain 'ol pretty paper. Also, my lamp that I normally use broke so it was just hard to show all the different textures. Below is a slightly different angle to show some more textures.
I used a lot of different dies for this card, most of which are Spellbinders. The swirls is from Magnolias. I added a burgundy seam binding bow and there ya have it. A lovely Thank You card.
I am thankful for my family, friends, the freedoms I enjoy and for a loving Father in Heaven. I am thankful to have been the mother of a very special daughter named Jessica who went "home" to heaven last year and who taught me to "Never give up!"... never give up hope, never give up faith and to never give up on myself or my family. I miss my beautiful girl but I'm also thankful that she is in a better place and free from pain. I'm so thankful for my dear friends and family members who have helped me through each day... one of which is going to receive this Thank You card. I think I need to make several hundred if I were to just begin to give out Thank You cards to everyone who has helped me throughout my daughter's 22 years on earth and the one since she left. I'm blessed beyond measure.
Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to stop by the rest of the blogs and see what everyone else has made for us today. :)
