I thought this was an especially appropriate card to share with you today, given the pretty horrible week we’ve experienced so far in Canada – with two of our armed forces personnel fatally wounded in our own country in two different incidents. For myself, it’s been a sad and sobering reminder that I need to not take things for granted, and that we do need to let those we care about know that we are thinking of them and appreciate them, not just at happy or sad occasions.
One of the fun things we do as demonstrators is swap cards. Often, this is done in person at Stampin’ Up! events, but recently a group of friends and I have started doing this by mail. This was last month’s card from Liz Holloway. She used the Four Feathers stamp set and framelits (available as a bundle) from the Holiday catalogue. I love the soft colours in this one! The framelits make it easy to cut out your stamped images, even on vellum, as shown here. I look forward to sharing more swap cards with you here in the next while!
A reminder that my next monthly card class is in 2 weeks – Wednesday November 5th. We will be making four different cards using a variety of techniques – please register in advance by contacting me!
