I unsealed DH's card to take a photo this morning, and here it is:
Still haven't located the pictures I took the night before we left, of which this card was one. Tried to take a photo outside where the light was better, and too windy. So the background is on DD's counter.
- SWilson Bevel die cut the kraft card base. Red glitter paper placed behind the cutout and some 'jewels' added.
- Tattered lace Peace die cut from the same red glitter paper. (took me 2 tries to get this as I did it on the wrong side of the paper first time! You have to look to be sure the die is positioned on the proper side of the paper that you want to show- especially if it is a sentiment!). Happy to report that after a couple rolls through the machine, the die released very nicely, even though this is one of the thicker glitter papers. Had a bit of concern about that at first.
- image colored with copics, some WoS added, die cut with a S/B scalloped circle. Bottom portion of the card seemed to 'need something' and this was an image that was colored earlier. DH always likes to have something done with copics on his cards. Debated on adding a die sentiment of "husband" with the red glitter, and decided to leave as you see it. I think he'll like it.
Thought you might enjoy seeing what SIL did to amuse himself this morning.
Thanks for all the prayers & good wishes for DH. Thankfully he is improving some every day. He will be seeing our own doctors when we get back home. Don't know if the 12 hours of sitting on the drive to come south had anything to do with his problem. He felt well enough to go out yesterday with DD & me to go to some of the stores (oh the crowds). There are quite a few Michael's stores in the area, so whenever one is close, I have to check it out. Stock is pretty well picked over & nothing interesting. Yesterday after a quick stroll through one, walking to the exit - I spied a few Stampendous Christmas stamps - 70% off - on a counter end cap. I managed to get three that are normally $14.99/$15.99, paying about $4.00 for each.
Hope you're having a grand day whatever you may be doing. Thanks for joining me, and in case I don't get on the computer tomorrow, a Big Merry Christmas to all of you. If you don't celebrate the day as such, then Happy Holidays as well! Big Hugs.
PS: As I've been typing this post, we've watched dolphins playing out in the water in front of the house. So graceful & what a thrill.
