Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Nut
hello my dear friends! sending our much love to each of you!
we are a bit melancholy here as our most precious kitty, Eliza, died yesterday. I had just returned from the grocery store to find her on her last breath. She spent 15 wonderful years with us, beginning as a stray we took in when she was a kitten. In fact, that is the reasoning behind her name. She was named after the character Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady. Hopefully her life was truly transformed, as she touched our lives in so many ways. Goofy to get this way over a cat I know, but our pets become such treasured family members. Every time Tyler came home from school, you would know to find Eliza cuddled up in his lap. She would join Ryan as he played video games on his bean bag chair. She followed me every where I went, inside & out. thank you for letting me share for a moment.
Now on to my card for today. Several nights ago, Paulette over at Create with TLC asked for a few people to help out as guest designers. I quickly volunteered since I so love everything she comes up with. Lo and behold she was needing people to print out some of her fabby new vintage labels, which happen to be in color. yep, I'm out of color ink. so she asked instead if I could make a project using a new free image she had just posted. well of course I was all over that! ;)
I printed out the shell 4 times on kraft cs, punched with the new SU! postage punch, lightly watercolored the shells & painted with opal shimmerz, and then inked the edges in white craft. papers are Making Memories Great Escape. in fact, everthing except the vintage trim is Making Memories. how's that for sticking with one company? I really do love their vintage products.
Please stop by Create with TLC and see Paulette. she posts at least one freebie if not lots more every day. sometimes a sentiment, sometimes a most amazing vintage image. and be sure to leave her some bloggy love in the comments section! :)
have a great one, my special friends! thanks again for letting me share a few memories with you! Jennifer
