I ADORE flowers ... real flowers most of all. They are all lovely, special, unique in their own way, they definitely speak of God's Beauty, Love and Creative Expression. Although I don't like cards with flowers that much; this stamp reminds me in a way of real flowers. It's detail is beautiful! For quite some time it remained the only stamp I had, and I never really knew how to get the best of the image. I was at first attempts at stamping (am still quite new compared to most of you!) and didn't use it at all. Then I read a tutorial on a stamping magazine and I liked the idea of stamping the same background on vellum and colouring it in to enhance the image. I'm not 100% happy with the card, but then it's not that bad! I think I will leave it for mum's Birthday.. she loves cards with flowers ! :)
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
