Finally a new card

I was finally able to find time to stamp and make a card!

Last week was very difficult – a new funeral tends to bring back emotions not yet healed from the last ones (my Mom and Dad). But Mom was 92 and had a good life – so we are grateful for that! And it was nice to see my in-laws again. We got to do a lot of reminiscing!

Because of the travelling, we missed Marissa’s birthday at the beginning of August. So we celebrated her birthday and our wedding anniversary at the same time at the restaurant last night. Jim and I got married on August 24th, 34th year ago! I have trouble believing it’s been that long! Well, Jim is still the love of my life and it’s been a great 34 years. Thanks my love if you ever read this!

So here is the card I made for Marissa’s birthday – the white around is the envelope, with the cat image stamped on it:

Here is the inside (repeating the cat from the top of the card and the envelope):

I used a technique called Faux batik for the background.
Here is the recipe for the material used:

Papers: White Mulburry paper (for the background), Prism (green and iridiscent mauve), Bazzill Bling CS (turquoise), White Cardstock: SU whisper white.
Stamps: Cat: C.Marie Benoit, Happy Birthday and text inside, Penny Black
Misc: Ink for cats single images and greetings: SU Lovely Lilac, For background: White embossing powder, Vivid inks reinkers, ribbon: Dollarama, Fiskar Lace edge punch.

Thanks for your visit – I hope to be back with more cards soon!

Merci de votre visite – j’espère ëtre de retour bientôt avec d’autres cartes ou des photos de mes voyages.
