The Big, Crabby, 40 baby!!
I hate being so far from my grandma
I made this one to fit in those envelopes that I got from Target, so I tried to bring in a little green to the scene. The card base is gable green. There is one small layer of basic black and real red under the main image, which is on shimmery white SU! card stock. All the coloring is done with my aquapainter and ink pools in the lids of my classic pads. Images are stamped with Timber Brown Stazon. I started by stippling cool caribbean and creamy caramel on the shimmery and went from there by adding the rest.
I want to thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for the support you've given me!! And, a BIG extra thank you to all of you who are sending cards my grandma's way. I know she will treasure each one!!
Hope you have a super day, and thanks for visiting!!
and each time the phone rings, I get a little nervous. Thankfully, things seem to be going well, even though yesterday she had to spend one more night in ICU. I can't complain too much, since most of my cousins are much further away. Thank goodness for email and cell phones!! Anyway, one of my cousin's turned the big 40 the day after my grandma had surgery. I had this card half made for him before I left. It was relaxing to sit and color and it helps get my mind off things. I am such a worry wort. He is flying out today from MN and I'm sure it will make my grandma's day to have him there when she gets out of ICU. He also grew up here on the OR coast and also grew up crabbing and fishing. I thought he'd especially like the little crab scene. :) I can't rib him too much about turning 40, since it's right around the corner for me. LOL I hope this card brings him a big ole smile... even though he is THE BIG 40 now!©Stampin'Up! 1990-2007
