Good evening Lovelies, what a scorcher :)!
Tonight's make is an emotional one for me, I'm a foster carer, and this card is for the last little one we had, she came to us at 4 days old and stayed until she was adopted at 17 months! I can tell you it was the hardest thing I've ever done, and will never get over it! A day doesn't go by without her being in my thoughts, and yes I still have times when I cry! That was nearly a year and half ago, she is extremely happy and her new mummy and daddy are the most wonderful and worthy, people to have my special little girl, and they do update me from time to time, thank goodness. And of course we have another little princess now, she came 3 weeks after the last one at a year old and will also be getting adopted fairly soon, so another broken heart coming up, I must be crazy, but in spite the heart ache I love my job!
So back to my card which is for the one that's been adopted she will be 3 in September, hopefully we'll get to see her?
I used 8x8 white scalloped edge card base, and just went crazy with my new spellbinder dies and m-bossability, i did it all with white and edged with pink sherbert adirondack ink, the image is Wellington stamp from a set, which I coloured using Spectrum noirs, the branches for the cherry blossom die are coloured with walnut stain DI, I dotted sticklers in the centre of cherry blossoms, added some buttons and a couple of the smallest bitty blossoms and foliage, the 3 is a template which I cut out onto double sided adhesive and plonked into micro beads, a bobby dazzler for biggest flower and voila, took quite a while, but I like the result, I had to get this right for her love her! Hope you like it? Thank you for spending the time to visit xxx
