Soft Winter light...














So it is Tuesday already???  I can't say I like to see time go so fast but it does bring me closer to my dh coming home on the weekends..sigh.   I have several goals for this year..one being better photos...more importantly light. Soft winter light that is.  I have a hard time capturing it.  It might as well be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow...it moves and changes so often it is hard to capture it.  But alas...I trudge on.  I came by to share some custom cards for a dear customer.  She wanted a baby card for her 1st grandbaby ever!!!  A baby girl!  I have soooo much fun creating baby cards and wish I could make them everyday! I added the baby tag and added a see through acetate clock that says time on it...baby time that is!  I also made a birthday card for her with more diecut clocks and a wedding card.  I thought the kissing birds made from venetian lace was perfect for a couple just starting out.  I of course had to tea stain them, can't have anything looking to new!  The last two cards....are what else??? Valentines.  I will be guesting for Kimberly at My Craft Spot.   I used the yummy Vintage Valentine crickle ribbons.( I added some of my pink ink to one of the little bows to match my sentiment ink color). ....and her  new stamp set Always and Forever.   Such sweet sentiments....that can be used again and again. Not just for Valentines either...for weddings or anniversaries..can't wait to play more with the sentiments.   I used one on a banner and paper pieced the little heart for extra detail,  the other card I wanted to play around with where my sentiments would go.   I added my paper that has I love you typography and than stamped the ALWAYS AND FOREVER on the dovetails for something a bit different.  Kinda like the outcome...may try it again.  Well that is it for me today.  I am off to play some more and get dinner done...this is definantly my therapy with my dh gone.  Keeps me sane.  I am crock potting it again....beef stroganoff....care to share any recipes? Have a lovely evening!  Hugs to you all, cherry

Oooooo...how delicious are these?!? I'm so glad someone else doesn't tire of doilies...I feel like I shouldn't use them like I would like...but I'm thinkin' people are probably thinkin'..."can't she make something without a doily?!?" But they frame everything in so softly and sweetly!! So glad I have a partner in "doily crime"! ;)
