Silver Wedding Rings

Hello Again!

It's going to be a while before I can catch up here on my blog that which I've been doing behind the scenes.  So many cards made.  All photographed.  Very few photo-edited.  And so it goes when one's calendar is full! 

I thought I'd wake up my blog - at least for a day - with a simple wedding card I made a few months back.  

The Precious Wedding Rings die (Memory Box) came to the rescue, helping to make a plain and simple card a little bit more fancy. I die-cut it from white cardstock, then used a Versamark marker only on the wedding bands portions.  Coated it with silver embossing powder, and held on to the 'strings' with crafting tweezers.  After hitting it with the heat gun and letting it all cool down, I added rhinestones in strategic places once this embellishment was glued down to the paper.

It kind of bugs me that there is no sentiment on the front, but I had to let it go. There really was no good place to put one. 

I joined a ministry called Sisters In Spirit at my church very recently. On Friday night, about 10 of us gathered together to make Thanksgiving cards (and a few Christmas cards) for home-bound members of our congregation. I brought along some already-stamped-and-trimmed autumn leaves, and a few twine bows, to contribute to the pile of crafting goodies we used. 

It was very gratifying to know that 40 people will get a little surprise in their mailbox, letting them know that someone is thinking of them. :-)

Boy, am I ever behind. The days go by so quickly and I don't even have an excuse. Well, almost. There is always a lot to keep us busy. Beautiful card, Colleen, and I do not think every card needs a sentiment on the front. There is no mistaking the purpose of this card. I think it's lovely that your church group sent out all those cards. It really does make a difference in someone's day. Have a lovely Thanksgiving!
