Today’s a SPECIAL day – it’s my friend Valinda’s bithday. Valinda and I have been friends for years now. We met on the internet through our interest in digital scrapbooking but our friendship grew quickly and deeply. We are always in touch and she’s a true treasure. I hope you have the best birthday ever, dear friend! I’ve created a giveaway file in honour of YOU today! I made it fit with this card theme below too.
I am also especially proud to say my sister Nina is a Design Team Member for this challenge so I had to whip up something she’d not hide her head in shame at. Here’s my take:
Embellishment: Heart, Insert and Arrow by Barb Derksen (me)
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug
Embossing on Arrow: Ranger – Queen’s Gold
I cut the .studio files on my Silhouette SD and then assembled. The white slotted heart nests behind the red bumpy heart shape. I placed a thick foam tape behind the slotted white heart and then weaved the arrow behind it so that the white part actually “puffs out” Its hard to appreciate the 3d look of this card.
Here are the cutting files for you all to download:
I will also place a copy of this download in the PAGES section of my blog (look up at the TABS above this entry) so that you can download it any time in the future.
Some more exciting news – I will be guest designing for Word Art Wednesday for the entire month of February! Look for “stuff” happening here, including a fun blog hop!
A few more ice photos:
Nature, as far as in her lies,
Imitates God and turns her face
To every land beneath the skies,
Counts nothing that she meets with base
But lives and loves in every place.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
A gathering of geese
Ice is nice – in miniature form this reminds me of broken windshield glass
A cool crystalline sculpture
Reeds frozen and encased for all of winter
This ice even curving along the length of a bent reed.
