Thank You

...maybe angels aren't so hard to find after all. Thank you so much for all of your comments and emails...I was in tears (over and over again) reading all of your messages and stories....((((hugs)))) You can never know how much it meant to me.


I thought it was appropriate to make an angel card today. My friend, Crissy, was the featured stamper on Splitcoaststampers a few weeks ago when I was out of town. I have been meaning to do this challenge for awhile, so today I got it done.

Crissy is a phenomenal artist and stamper. She is an artist for High Hopes stamps and she is such an inspiration. I created this card with her style in mind. I basically cased a few different cards in her gallery to come up with my own tribute to one AMAZING stamper.

The main image is stamped and colored with prisma pencils and gamsol. I embossed the flowers in the background. The green strip across the middle is stamped with Canvas (SU!) and I added some white Daisy D's faux stitching tape that I got from Jacksonbelle's online store across the top and bottom of this panel.

Finally, I added gel pen accents to the scalloped frame around the angel. A clear flower from Heidi Swapp and a button complete the card.



Materials Used: Stamps--Angel and Sentiment (High Hopes), Canvas and Pocket Fun-flower (Stampin' Up!); ink-brilliance black, celery, brown; cardstock-turquoise, celery, white, red; flower (Heidi Swap); button (SU!); gel pen (SU!); thread; white embossing powder; heat tool; versamark; Daisy D's faux stitching tape; Nestabilities; prismacolor pencils; gamsol.

Cammie,
I didn't see yesterday's post until now and I am sitting here crying. Crying for your friend, crying for you, me and anyone else who has lost a baby. I have two angels...Catherine & Alexander. They were both stillborn but I was blessed with three more children just like you and am so thankful for them! Nothing was as painful as losing my babies except maybe losing my dear mother. It is a pain that no parent should have to know. I read your poem and it is so beautiful. I am going to copy it and use it in my scrapbook someday soon. I've never scrapped about my angels but this seems like the right poem to use for them. I will pray for your friend...my heart goes out to her.
