Yesterday was a busy day, nice outside, so I didn’t get much time to stamp! I did make a quick card using this week’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch by Rita. Isn’t it pretty?
I wanted to send a card to a woman in our church who quietly serves our Alzheimer’s Support group, which my friend facilitates, by making cookies every month for them. My friend wanted to make sure that each month she had homemade goodies to serve to her group, and I used to get volunteers each month. Then, one month, a woman stepped up and said she would do it again for a second time…..and a third, and then she said she would just continue to do it. She is very shy and quiet, but this is her way of serving God and our community, and it took a burden off me as well! So this card is a little thank you for her:
It’s a pretty literal interpretation of the sketch because I can’t seem to come up with anything really clever and spectacular lately; it uses Domestic Goddess DP and the Tiny Teacup (soon-to-be-retiring) stamp. I did some stitching on the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border that had been punched from Calypso Coral, and added a couple little punched-out flowers in the corners. Now……how about some spaghetti?
