Giraffe and Butterflies for FWF
Whoop! So glad it's Friday!
The nursing home where I work is celebrating 50 years of serving the community today. We're having this huge picnic and open house. We've been planning it for months now, with most of the planning/ordering/decorating falling on my shoulders. I'll be VERY glad when this day is over. I love big events once they are underway, but I get nervous preparing for them, wondering what I've forgotten to do.
Remember last week, when I was at the Copic classes? Well, I learned a lot! I thought I should have a card today using Copics. This is actually one I colored before I took the class, but I still like how it turned out. It uses a Unity/Phyllis Harris stamp, Big Time Special.
I just love this stamp. It makes me smile! I used MME "The Sweetest Thing" papers, and of course, Copic markers.
Last week, I shared a card with a butterfly on it. Well, when I made that butterfly, I made several just like it. Here's a card using another one of the butterflies, made into a sympathy card for a co-worker who lost her sister-in-law.
This card uses Unity Stamp Co's/Donna Downey Bold Butterfly stamp and "With Sympathy". I used Close To My Heart sky card stock for the base and True Blue Stickles for the butterfly trail and on the small stamped butterfly.
