Happy Thursday ... it's a going to be a nice weekend here in California and finally a little bit cooler so we are looking forward to a nice barbecue this weekend and face timing the family that lives out of state! What a crazy world we live in these days but thankfully it's going to get better for summer :)
Today i have a very special card that i made for my daughter to send her for Mother's Day this year. It's her first time as a mom and she is doing such an amazing job at it and i wanted to make something really special for her. I die cut everything on this card all the way down to the handmade flowers so it's a labor of love for sure. I used the new " Heart Melange Doily set" from the new "Dimensional Doilies" collection by Becca Feeken for my center doily on my card. These dies are just amazing for what you can do with them and their versatility and adding them to other dies makes them all the more special.
I wanted to use one of my favorite dies from the christmas collection too so under the doily you can barely see the tiny snowflake hidden under it but it works great! I chose a very pale palette of lavender and ivory and each layer compliments the next. The details are just amazing with all those die cuts don't you think? It's what i love about Becca's dies and how incredible that each of them is. The flower die is from the New Rose Cinch and Go set and then a added leaves and some smaller flowers that i made.
Here is a better view of the die set and how pretty these little hearts are....
This picture shows the pretty rhinestones and all the other pretties that i added to make the flower cluster in the center. The vellum piece slides out from under the doily with the message under it so she will be surprised when she reads it. I so love making special things for family.
I hope you like my share for today and sadly it will be my last for a little bit. I am taking a break from design team crafting for awhile to get working on my Ancestry family albums ( I have 8 of them to do) and my new granddaughters books so i will share some of those pages later on with all of you using Becca's dies.
I was so very blessed to be on the team for so very, very long and work with the Spellbinders Company with so very, very many talented ladies and who knows maybe i will get to go back in the future if i get the opportunity again. But for now i am just taking a break and catching up with life.....
So enjoy your weekend and have fun making some beautiful things... thank you to all of you who took the time to leave me such sweet comments about my work while being on this team. To you all i will be eternally grateful and thank you for making what i do feel so very special.
Hugs and Smiles to all of you around the world,
