So onto my card! I know, your thinking! Oh no not more Christmas cards in January? But this card was for a very special little girl! A lot of you know that I'm a foster carer! Well our gorgeous little Millie is moving onto adoption on the 17th of January after being with us for a year and 10 months, she was a year old when she came to us a sad, withdrawn and very tiny, skinny little soul, her journey has been tough, for us as well, but she as emerged a bright and confident, still tiny but with a huge personality, so as we are preparing to say goodbye to this little darling whom we love with all our hearts I wanted to dedicate this post to her, I am crying writing this post, we're going to miss her so much, it's going to be tough for her too, but she is going to have a wonderful new mummy and daddy! I am happy for all of them and I wish them every happiness in the world.
My card is 8x8 matted with white linen card which I ran through GC using a CC 8x8 EF it has corner designs but I only wanted the lines around the edges, my topper i scored 3 lines either side of my stamping space using my Hougie board, I created my design by stamping with versamark the snowflakes from a Kanban set of stamps, then blending pan pastels, sealing with cheap hairspray, then stamping the reindeer from the same set in black, I added glitter here and there, a very simple card, but created with love, also she has loved reindeers at the garden centre Christmas display, and who can resist using pink for a little girl?
Thank you for spending the time to read my story and look at my card, I hope I haven't depressed you? Would love you to pop along and take a look at the wonderful creations the rest of the DT have posted and join in!
