Christmas Heart

Hello...

I hope your week is going well... 

A couple of days ago I pulled out my distress inks - Playing around helps take my mind off the sadness I'm feeling right now... Anyway I made a few Christmas cards and here's one of them


As you can see I didn't just blend the inks, I splattered and stamped and embossed


I love that no two pieces ever look the same, thing is I can never remember what colours I use anyway


Pat came to play yesterday and it was so good to see her... She's covering the Thursday Club for me once again this evening. I had their projects ready, and though I am feeling much better after the cold and infection, the leg pain is still a problem plus the GP surgery contacted me to say that the doctor wants to talk to me later this evening, I guess they have the results of my MRI scan... I'm a little anxious but staying positive...


Wishing you a wonderful day

You must have had that call by now & I'm so anxious to know what the doctor says can be done. Glad you saw Pat & could spend a little time crafting. You are one of the most creative cardmakers, Ros! What a wonderful idea to use a heart with snowflakes & your blending & splattering are gorgeous! Sending love & hugs, Greta

Great blending, splattering, stamping and embossing...So glad that card making helped you a little and momentarily got your mind off your awful sadness. Such a unique and gorgeous Christmas card Ros x Crossing my fingers for you xx

I love what you did with the background and the way the heart image is placed. I never thought of using a heart for Christmas but is so works. Love the gold branches and the velum for the sentiment. Did you adhere the heart to the panel and then die cut to get the stitching on the border of the heart?

It's good to keep yourself occupied with something like this gentle craft when your spirits are down. And just look what you created! Always something clean and beautiful coming out of your craft room. Just gorgeous, Ros! Sigh...

Beautiful blending and stamping heart Christmas design, Ros. I am glad you did some creative stamping for your mental health my friend. Finally after the results of your MRI you received a reason why you have such severe sciatica pain. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers that you will be pain free in the near future. With Love and Hugs...

Oh so very beautiful, a gorgeous job of blending those pretty colors. Another pretty pretty design! A big hug to you my friend..maybe to cheer you up...did you know we got another puppy? Oh how I love him so (yes a him, my first ever male dog)..he is nine weeks old, a goldendoodle and he keeps this old lady running that is for sure)...but I love him already and he knows it..spoiled brat...lol!!

Well, blending, splattering, or embossing, it all looks amazing together. I like the little touch of glitter you gave it too.

Barbara said...

Another beauty! I love the snowflakes and how they look on your fabulous background. I'm just now catching up with your posts and do hope, too, that you got good news from your doctor...

Sue Lelli said...
