Someone close to us was just diagnosed, and that also sucks.
Not only for him, but for those in the house who take care of him, the family, friends....everyone around him. Mostly for him. Luckily, meds are working pretty well, so that's a good thing.
I sent him a card a while ago, and forgot to take any photos. Rats.
But for the lady of the house, who I am sure can also use some extra support, I made this--
(avert the children's eyes, please)--
This card started with the flowers I made from a scrap when I first bought this Sizzlit die. They sat around for a good while, until I saw the other papers that you see, and decided they were good for each other. The flowers are super simple, just curled around a pencil, and centered with some My Mind's Eye brads that I've had for a bit. The leaves have a fun treatment though.
You can see them better here--
Well, somewhat better, anyway. I trimmed two leaves from the remainder of the paper, curled them a bit, and adhered them with glue to keep the curl. The one with the sequin is less obvious, but it's done the same way as the one on the quatrefoil paper.
I don't usually do the simple paper panel thing, especially not without a mat behind it, but I like the simplicity here. I also almost never have such a big border of card base showing. Hey, you gotta mix it up sometimes; am I right?
I hope you don't think of me as a potty mouth now. Or is that a potty card(maker)? In this instance, I do find this to be the perfect sentiment. I think it's good for a laugh, too. It says, "BIG HUG" inside.
Thanks for stopping by!
Big Hugs to you.
