Birthday Card for Rob

Welcome back!!  Here is a birthday card for my friend Rob. He is one of those surprise friendships. Most people would never see this friendship working but as time as gone on we have found we have many things in common. He can make me laugh. I also admire his faith which is shown in this card. Rob has always liked my projects using mixed media so of course I knew I had to use this on his card. There is something unique with this card. Several months back Rob wrote this scripture down for me and asked me to use it on a previous project he ordered. I kept looking at the napkin and told myself to keep it. So in the creating process it finally came to mind that I wanted to use it, I tried several different processes but finally successfully got his hand written scripture transferred onto his card.  I gave him his card and told him what I had done, he had to look twice and said "that is my handwriting". Just got a text that he really like his card. I think with his help this card came out perfect.

Every time card

Drum roll please....first card to make it into my personal hall of fame favorites. This was a special order card, ordered by a very special person. She ordered with intentions of giving it to someone else and that has changed, so I centered this card around her.  She has a talent like no other.  Her voice has the power to bring you to your feet and your hands in the air. I fell into a funk and didn't feel like crafting for a few weeks but this project changed that. I used my inspiration from Christy Tomlinson and created this one of a kind mixed media card.  The more I worked on it, the more I felt at ease and just sat back and created. I worked on the background one day with card stock, paints, gesso and paint mist. I guess this project stayed with me all day because that night I dreamed of how I wanted to finish this card off.  Thankfully it all came together.  I think it fits her perfectly because when she sings it definitely is magical. I can't wait to give it to her!  I got my mojo back and I'm ready to craft!  Thanks for stopping by and come back!  Holidays projects posted soon.
