The card on my blog today is for our September Calendar Girls challenge. Our hostess for September was Paola and the following is her post to us for the challenge:
Hello Calendar Girls,
To honour a dear longtime friend of
mine who passed away early today, I would like to request that you create a
beautiful card using the following guidelines:
Your card must be a fancy
fold, and have apples stamped on it -and colored-
(OR, if you don't own any
apples's stamps, apples can be incorporated on your cards via designer
papers,stickers,dies etc..), plus have at least one 3-D butterfly on your card
The main colors used for this challenge are to be your own
favourite colors (use at least two of them please, and tell us which ones they
are once you blog it.)
Why the apples/butterflies
combos you may ask?
My friend used to bring me tons and tons of
beautiful apples from her garden at about this time of the year as the fall
season just starts to appear, and today, at the hospice, she was covered in a
gorgeous handmade blanket full of beautiful colorful butterflies as we said our
final goodbye....A bigger 3-D all white sequined butterfly was placed on top of
her heart too...♥Please note: Your cards are NOT to
be sympathy cards at all, please keep them ‘happy/festive’ - as a celebration of
LIFE in general! ♥
♥ Hug a friend today...life's way too short!
And here is my card:
I made a spring fold card using three colors of cardstock (from Stampin' Up!) that I really like. The colors are Cherry Cobbler, More Mustand and Pear Pizzazz. The designer paper is from imaginisce and is called Apple Cider Apple Crisp. The sentiment "thinking of you" is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and the image is from the Give Thanks set, both from Stampin' Up!
