Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've made a creation. My husband is terminally ill and I care for him. So I have no more time each day to practice my hobby. Caring for my husband is priority number 1. My father is also since December 18, 2014 in the hospital, it is worrisome. He has a dangerous bacterium and get 5 weeks of antibiotics. It is also in his artificial hip, so they have been removed. He has been operated on several times. It's a very tough time, but we must go on.

So, here is my first card for 2015


 
These are the materials I used:

 - Craft paper
- ColorCore Cardstock Tim Holtz&Ranger Distress Coll.
-Tim Holtz Distress Ink
- Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain
- Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink
- Tim Holtz Idea-ology fasteners
- Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades
- Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Coll. "Simple Sayings"
- Sizzix Butterflies, Intricate

Thanks for stopping by, see you next time
Hugs,

Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 13

Hello everyone,

This is my first time I take part in the CC3 challenge. I was always a card maker but in recent years it has changed;-). This is my project for week 13 of the CC3 Challenge sponsored by Inspiration Emporium that follows page 35 from Tim's book - altering a worn cover. It has given me a lot of pleasure to work on this project.










I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!
