Thinking of and missing you!

So I have officially been an easterner for a whole 5 months. Getting used to Toronto but still missing Edmonton. For anyone who has moved far away from home, you will understand how difficult it can be. It’s been especially hard on my mom, we are close and often would go to the Strathcona Farmers Market early Saturday mornings, or grab a coffee during the week. So during my time away I have made sure to call often, use facetime and in true crafter fashion, made and sent cards. Below is what I sent her a week ago.

I absolutely loved this card and it inspired me to do a take on it:

Miao – A design Blog

And here is my take on it.

I love the layering in this one, as well as the oportunity to use this flower, been wanting to since I got it.

The finished product!

I have always loved the polka dots, and enjoy using them in projects, but something I hadn’t thought of was nesting them. This is the first project I have used the black rhinestones on, still not sure if I love them.

Hope you like and thanks for reading,

Jillian

Simple Circles

A little while back a friend at work asked if I could make her a card. She new I loved to make them and offered to buy one from me. Of course I said no, I need excuses to make cards. I asked what kind of card she would like, what was her friend like. She said that she was girly, but that I should just make whatever I wanted. I coerced a color scheme from her and Below is what resulted.

The colors were purple and teal. I have to apologize for not being able to find my inspiration photo. It is in my Google feed reader somewhere, but for the life of me I cannot locate it. I will update if I do. Sorry for the photo quality, I gave it away before I could look at the pictures.

I loved all the layers in this card.

Thankfully she was thrilled with the card. And actually ended paying with a craft off her own. One of these guys…
