I thought I'd share another sample I made for the Convention boards today. We were given the Tag It set, but not the matching framelits so some serious creativity was required to use them. For me anyway! I kinda dreamed up the idea for this card and it turned out so cute! I really had a blast making it.
Stamps: Tag It, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: Calypso Coral, Basic Gray, Baked Brown Sugar
Paper: Pool Party, Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White, In Color DSP stack, Daffodil Delight (or So Saffron; I can't remember!)
Tools: Circle, Pennant, and Cupcake punches
Today would have been my Eli's 5th birthday. It's so hard to know what to do on his birthday as we can't buy a cake and have him blow out the candles as we sing. We can't buy gifts for him to open. It's just a sucky day and I usually spend most of it crying over the unfairness of it all. Laila and I picked out some pretty sunflowers, so we'll take them out to the cemetery and release 5 red balloons I guess. I was thinking this year we'd get a little cupcake and start to tell Laila stories about him and share it with her. It's never an easy day and I just hope for the patience and strength to make it through.
