Sending Hugs and Prayers

My baby sister has been in the hospital twice in the last month. They are not sure what is her problem, but she is contracting sepsis and they don’t know the cause. This time her blood pressure got to an extreme low of 56/30 before they started on medication to bring it up. She is doing better, but we are still waiting to see if they can determine the cause. We are definitely sending lots of prayers.

Garden Pick Sending Prayers

When I was at Hobby Lobby recently they had this pretty Crafters Companion Grand Swirls Die on 40% off and so I decided to get it. It makes a beautiful card. I had some light gray and white patterned paper that I used behind the swirls, used silver mirror and light gray cardstock for the sentiment, and then decided to add a pop of red with some flowers from Altenew’s Garden Pick 3D Dies. Love, Love, Love this card.

Scalloped Edge Garden Picks Happy Birthday

I recently was going through all my dies to determine which I should get rid of and pass on to another crafter to enjoy. I realized that I hadn’t used the edge dies that came in the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for February 2019 and decided I should give them a try before I decided if I wanted to give them away. I think the lacey scallop is pretty and went searching from patterned paper that would look good with it. When I found this pretty paper with its pink roses I decided to add some 3D flowers from Altenew’s Garden Picks. Love the way it turned out.

Woven Ribbons Birthday Wishes

I think this die from Frantic Stamper creates a background that looks like a beautiful quilt. I played around with this quite a bit. At first I didn’t like the hot pink and purple together until I finally changed the patterned paper sections. The flowers in that paper are so similar to Altenew’s Rose Flurries 3D dies that I decided to add a flower in the lower left corner.
