Dear FWF, I have missed you...

I missed the last 2 weeks of Friends With Flair. The hustle and bustle of the holiday season, along with contractor problems, internet issues and a hectic work schedule, swallowed me whole. I haven't even been able to touch ANY stamps!!! Can you say withdrawal? I have a heavy heart and I need to stamp some pain away. Tomorrow I am off and plan to do just that. Here is a card that I made to send to heaven...for my mommy.

"I'll always love you...":

SUPPLIES USED:
Card: Made from scrap cardstock
Cardstock: Unknown (using up scraps)
Ink: Versamagic Dew Drops - Mango Madness, Persimmon and Red Brick (Tsukineko); Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Stamps: Unity cobrand Donna Downey - "Embrace You"; Unity Itty Bitty "I'll Always love You"
Other: Stickles "Diamond" (Ranger); Zig Millennium Pens .08 and .01; Corner Rounder Punch (Creative Memories)

Close Up of the "off the page" stamping with multiple ink shades:

A little bling for the heart to set it off:
I added a flight trail for the butterfly and worked the sentiment in :)
Hoping you all had a fabulous holiday and wishing the best for 2012 :) Hugs to you!

I'm sorry your heart is heavy, Pryn. I'll say a prayer tonight for you and Mommy in heaven. Have a Happy New Year.

Pryn, This card is so beautiful. Simple and to the point. Your Mom will see it, trust me. I make cards for my Dad also and I feel that he sees everything one that I make. He is watching over me just as your Mom is watching over you. Everytime you feel good about one of your creations, that is your Mom praising your and your accomplishments. She will always be with you. Don't forget to talk to her and about her daily. Bless You and have a safe, Happy, Loving New Year. I'm sure Mom is watching to make sure you do. -Donna

This is very pretty, Pryn. I love how you stamped the butterfly partway off the page. It tells a story. I'm sorry you are missing your mother. Perhaps she will meet you in your dreams.
Have a blessed New Year,
Teresa

PS - I have a blog candy giveaway all January.
