This card above and below was made for a friend of ours who celebrated his 60th birthday this month. Part of our Table 7 crew and the last of the men to reach 60. That means the ladies are next starting in March. It will be another year to celebrate 60 years.
I used the retiform technique to be able to use different themes that depicted his interests. And it was bigger than normal to accommodate all that - 8" x 8".
And sadly I had to make a sympathy card this month for some friends whose adult children had a car accident and one of them didn't make it. How my heart is aching for them. They are friends of my daughter and we've known them for a long time and they're still kids to me. I can't even begin to imagine what their family is going through and I really didn't have the words.
A blogging friend recently had double knee replacement surgery and since she always makes me smile with her humorous and poignant posts, I sent her a box of sunshine. (I hope you're seeing a honey colored card and not the intense greenish gold that I am seeing. Don't know if it's the camera or my computer?)
Okay, it's time to count the Christmas cards in my box and see how many more I need to create. Luckily, thanks to the Jingle Belles challenges I am way ahead of where I would be if I hadn't taken part this year. One more challenge this week and we'll be done until January.
