I'm a Little Behind...

Sorry to have been absent for so long.  
My sweet sweet Grandmother passed away this last Friday on her 92nd birthday.  She was a beautiful person inside and out.  She loved the Lord, her family, babies and flowers.  She had the most amazing green thumb!  No, I didn't inherit that gene.  I think this photo is the last one I have with her.  She was already not feeling very well but she was still able to flash that sweet smile for the camera!  I will miss her terribly.

So I am trying to jump right back in the game today with a few cards I made several weeks ago.

All three cards are made with the new ODBD Lilacs set.

I colored the image in various shades of copic marker and cut out the image with a Spellbinders Oval.  I used a black marker to get the tiny border around the oval.  I framed it with the Spellbinders ODBD Custom Elegant Oval Die.  The black background is embossed with a cuttlebug folder and I added tiny pearls.  Then I added the lace bow and tiny Spellbinders tag to the Lilac image.  I sprayed the card with Glimmer Mist to complete the card. 

For this one I colored the lilacs in vintage shades of brown copics.  I used the out of the box technique when I cut the image out with the Spellbinders Oval.  Romantic Rectangles make a beautifully shaped card base.  I added lace and pearls to complete this card.

And another vintage card!  I used vintage shades of lavender and blue and brown copics on the image and cut it out with the Spellbinders ODDB Custom Elegant Ovals Die.  I framed it with the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die cut.  I dyed the seam binding with Glimmer Mist and wadded it up and let it dry to have the wrinkled look.  I made the bow with Becca's Peg Bow Maker.  I topped it off with a pretty button and crochet thread. 

Ok well, that is all for today!  I hope you all have a blessed day and I will see you again soon!

She was 90, when she went home to be with Jesus,seven years ago. Oh, I still miss her. Love and comfort be yours as you head into these next months.
