Hello to all of you! I hope today finds you full of beauty and love!
I am trying to get a head start on my Christmas cards. I figure if I do one or two a week that will definitely give me a boost before the holiday season arrives.
I found this precious image over at Tiddly Inks the other day and just had to have it. It is called, 'Watch Over Us'. I knew I would be going with a vintage feel for the overall card to match the Basic Grey Jovial papers, so before I began coloring the image, I first painted the entire piece of cs with butter cream shimmerz. This gives such a gorgeous shine, but also old world look when the image is watercolored. Distress stickles were added to her wings and halo. David has already set this one aside to go to the Church District office as one of the cards for them. so I know he likes it! :)
You know how much I like Basic Grey, but I really do think that this collection, Jovial, and the one I showed you yesterday, Pyrus, are my 2 new faves from them. I love the colors and designs so much! The prima rose shown here is another fave because it is actually made with velvet like the millnery flowers of old. be still my heart!
All of you have a wonderful weekend! I hope to spend mine crafting if at all possible. Mick is off on a big rock climbing trip with the climbing group at Bowling Green. Ryan is joining the indoor soccer team for his school. and Tyler just might be changing his major to pre-med, honors even! wow! I am so proud of my guys! I am one blessed lady! and I know you are, too! :)
