Today, I took some time to myself to do something that I love. As many of you know, my dear Mom passed away on March 9th and I am truly heartbroken. She was a wonderful Mother and friend to me and she was taken way too soon.
One thing, I know in my heart, is that she knew how much I loved to make hand made cards. She would want us to keep going and do what we love so today I honour her.
I spent some time alone in my Stamp room creating and I decided to participate in The Aim for Alaska Blog Hop to share my creation. This group is a training group hosted by Kylie Bertucci from Australia. It is an incredible group of talented demonstrators and I am so happy to be here with them. Today, the theme of our hop is inspired by Alaska and I decided to try an create the Northern lights. It is my hope to someday see these wonderful lights in person. Perhaps on this trip? A girl can always dream...
Currently, you are on my blog, Rose Marie Coleman, so have a look at the list at the end of the post to see who's up next. Be sure to keep hopping along the list of wonderfully talented Demonstrators and see all the wonderful new projects they have created for you.
Here is my card..
I was inspired by a card that my team member, Christina Way recently made using this technique with sponging colors and then using a toothbrush to "flick" white acrylic paint over top of the final product.
I changed it up a bit by clear embossing the swirl from the Star of Light set from the holiday catalogue. This set is still available on the Holiday carry over list.
I sponged the color in the centre of the card first and the followed around the edges with Night of Navy and finally Archival Black.
This card gave me much Joy today as I thought of my Mom and how much I love her. The message is perfect as I know that God had great plans for her and I trust and have faith in him.
