Anne`s Post and Card
Now this girl has so many aliases I am not even going to try to name them all! I kind of like Russian Spy though. Anyhoo...we were to pick a card of hers to case that we might have a story to share. Well after much thought about which card to pick I landed on this one.
I have always loved this image. Somewhere in my childhood I have seen a car like this in our family. So it brought back wonderful memories of the men in my life...first and foremost my dad who was taken from me when I was only 21. Not a day goes by that I do not think of him. So you see fathers are very precious to me. When shopping or just doing errands ,walking in the park, whatever...whenever I see a dad with his children I think to myself...I hope they know what they have is golden. This also represents my dh as a father...who I love more every day. So Connie Jo! Congrats to you my dear friend! You brought back some wonderful memories today...they are what keeps me going. And no one deserves the crown more...you are not only talented but one of the sweetest gals on SCS. So wear it proudly! I may have to do another card....as you probably don`t want this masculine one!! But I just had to choose it today. Hugs! Judi
I used PTI CS and the blue layers are Textured CS from Wal Mart! I sanded them. My main image was colored with Copics and cut out with a Rectangle Nestie. I sponged while still in the die. Then I used Distress Ink to shab it up a bit.It was then popped up. I added the jute with the key and lock charms. The inside and envelope were run through the SU Sizzix EB Folder. I only did like 1/3 of it. For a tip...when doing this so the paper doesn`t slip on you...I use double sided temporary tape.It holds perfectly and comes off great!
Sorry for such a long post. For those who read it all...I applaud, thank, and appreciate you!!
I am now dealing with a flooded cabinet under my bathroom sink...it even got in my drawers! And of course...my dh has been away on a business trip. LOL But he is on his way home. YAY! What a thing to come home to!!
Have a great day everyone!!
Blog candy soon!!
