Welcome back to another edition of the Wednesday Evening Post!
I wanted to start by telling you that I celebrated a milestone this week. . .On October 4th, I celebrated 1 year since my heart attack! Can you believe it has already been a year???? I had an ultrasound done on my heart on September 28th and a cardiologist appointment on October 3rd. He said everything looked great and my heart was 20% stronger than right after the heart attack. I had even lost more weight (total 38 pounds) and the ultrasound showed nothing abnormal. I just wanted to share the good news with you all!
My best friend's birthday was last week, and I made this for him. I really like these treat box cards. This one is stuffed with Hershey's toffee nuggets. This is a House Mouse image which I colored with my colored pencils and oms. Here is the pic with the tag pulled out:
My next card you will need sunglasses for!:
I was so thrilled this week. Melanie Muenchinger (a stamp designer from Stamp TV) sent me 3 sets of her stamps. She had noticed on my profile that I was a caregiver for Jay and she said that touched her heart and she wanted to send me some "happy mail". So I used one of the sets she sent to make this thank you card for her. This flower comes from her set "A Year of Flowers 2". She is so talented! I Stamped the floral images in Versamark ink, then embossed them with white embossing powder. I created the background by covering the card stock with Mustard Seed Distress ink, then stamping it off twice to achiever a very light image. I then colored the petals of the main flowers with my water brush and Spiced Marmalade Distress ink to achieve the various shading levels. I cut the stems from green card stock. Thanks so much for your kindness Melanie. . .it was so appreciated!!
I did this card for my sister who loves that insurance commercial where the camel wanders through the office asking everyone what day it is. . .What's even funnier about the commercial is that the camel actually uses my sister's name (Julie) and her ex-husbands name right after (Mike). I must have been drinking when I made this because I'm noticing in the picture that stuff is kind of crooked! Dang! Oh well, it was just for laughs anyway. The image is a digital from Doodle Pantry.
