My sister came to spend the night on Saturday and we had a really good visit. It is always great to spend time with her and it is nice to remember that people do love and care about me. Anyway, Sunday I told her "give me a card idea" and she said "how about congrats on your new home" and told me that her youngest son was able to buy his first home recently. I knew he was trying but guess it all went through just fine. She told me how proud she was of him so I wanted to make the cards special.
There were two people who had theirs done before the deadline of the last challenge even went out *okie is so irritated by overachievers*.
Here is my version for the sketch.
DCWV At Home stack
Stampin Up cardstock
Studio G Stamp
Stampin Up Stamp
Stampin Up Word Window, Modern Label punches
Stampin Up Marker
Embossing Powder, Gold
1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
My sister was quite fascinated by the whole heat embossing process and thought it was just a pretty cool deal *okie still thinks it's a cool deal even after all these years of doing it*.
Once I got the card done and my stamp on the back I handed her the card and said "there ya go" and she smiled and said "okay now sign it". I thought she has wanted me to make the card so she could give it to her son. She told me "It means more if you make the card and give it to him. I want him to know his aunt does love him". I am sure he does know that even though I rarely see him or talk to him, but I guess everyone needs a little reminder every now and then.
