This Week at Unity Show and Tell......


     It is an inspirational photo!  Lovely colors and wild flowers in great photo.  Since I was in need of a comfort card for a fellow my husband works with, I used that as my focus.  He just buried his mother on Wednesday.  Not easy to make, but these cards are a great part of our creativity, also.  Here is the photo we are to draw from.

      I created this card with an assortment of inks, which includes Memento, SU!, and Copic. I used a kraft base and a piece of Vintage Shabby paper from Tim Holtz.  My only embellishments are a strip of frayed burlap, and a few gems on the butterflies. The stamps are from the February 2013, Unity KOM called "Let Love Grow".  I must admit, that it is one of my very favorite kits with it's vintage images, and they cover St. Pats, Sympathy, Wedding, and so forth.  Here is hoping you like what I have come up with.

     Have a wonderful Friday, and Enjoy!

     P.S.  I guess the sentiment does not make much sense unless you know the inside says" Surround your heart with love and bring you strength".  Duh!

Great take on the sketch but even more so, a wonderful card for this man. I know how hard it is to make cards for this reason and you've done wonderful with this one Mary Anne. Absolutely beautiful.
