Happy Thursday to all,
Wow, what a week this has been for me. Lots of things going on here with no time to sit around doing nothing. I’ve been busy, 24/7! This week I received my August monthly kit from Hero Arts…….well, you know what happens when you get new product…..drop everything and start playing. At least, in a perfect world that may happen but first things first.
I delivered 61 cards as a donation to Dr. Carlos at MGH Pediatric Chief Residents and they were over-the-moon with them. Dr. Carlos plans to give one to each Resident during their tough rotations as an inspiration and encouragement for their hard work.
Next, I delivered another 35 cards to Hallmark Health/Hospice here in Malden. Allison was happy and excited to receive more cards. Her team plans to send them out to their patients as a bit of kindness as they go through some tough times.
And, who says kindness doesn’t come back to you. Allison shared a bit of kindness back to me by making me a gift. Check this out. It’s absolutely exquisite. I believe it is all decoupage. Allison made this with me in mind, a place to keep some supplies. I plan to use it for my next embroidery project, a place to keep all my threads and needles handy. I love it and appreciate Allison’s kindness.
Moving forward to this month’s Hero Arts Kit,
I played with some Distress Oxide inks and made up several backgrounds with a galaxy look. Fun, fun, fun!!!
I used watercolor paper so I placed the dried panels into my paper press to flatten them out a bit.So here are some of the cards that I’ve made to date. Lots of glitter and sparkle.I grabbed these graphics off the Internet. Oh, and I do like Blue Moon Beer!!!AND FINALLY, A SNEAK PEEK AT A SPECIAL CARD I’LL SHARE ON INSTAGRAM THIS SUNDAY, AUGUST 20. BE SURE TO FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM TO SEE WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT.
SIDE NOTE: I am anticipating a visit from my son and grandson, Dommy, who will be arriving from Texas Saturday and be staying for about a week. I have suggested that Dommy stay an extra week or so since we have so little time with him. I think this is a good enough reason to take a short break from card making. I will post next week but not sure if I’ll have any cards to share.
Oh, and as a reminder to those of us here in the states, don’t forget to tune in for the Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017. I’ll be there!!!
