This is one of Sweet'nSassy Stamps Digi stamps that we were able to download when joining the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's Fundraising Event this week. This is my first attempt with digi stamps and chose SU Vellum card stock to print on. I then used ink and blender pens to color the flowers. I did notice that the black printer ink ran into some of the ink when coloring so the effect is not quite the way I wanted it to look. I chose SU Bella Birds dsp and Pink Pirouette cs to mount the vellum image and sentiment. Finished with sheer ribbon. There is still time to join the group of stampers who have made a donation to the Alzheimer's Fund, you can use the link on my blog. Please make a difference by donating!
While the idea is to send a card to someone suffering with Alzheimer's or a family member, I am sending this to the family of a long time friend who just passed away from a long battle with cancer. Though we haven't seen each other since I moved almost 5 yrs. ago, I remember her as being a woman of strength for her family, friends and community. She freely gave of her time to the Ladies' Aux. of the Volunteer Fire Dept, the schools while her children were growing up, to Church activities and wherever she was needed. Almost a year ago she lost her oldest son to a sudden massive heart attack dealing with this horrible loss while battling the disease that took her life. Now she is at peace and home with the Lord.
Many blessings to all of you!
