Classic Car Watercolor Card

This one was made with my hubs in mind.
Love the classic car, which to me looks like a 1957 Chevy.


Front sentiment:  Authentic.  It is often the bend in the road that makes life worth the drive.


Inside sentiment:  Enjoy the ride.

I needed to catch up on on all the male birthday cards for family (lots of guys in the fam).  That's the reason for my recent masculine projects.
An outdoor scene was what I was going for. The chrome actually shines but hard to see in the pics.
I think I pulled it off in watercolor with Unity's Authentic Man set.

Inspiration:

Unity Stamp Co. Sketch Challenge 26 and Friends With Flair.

Runway Inspired Challenge ric#80 - Nonoo
Love this watercolor look and that pop of bright orange / red. 
For my take, I incorporated the colors and watercolor style for my husband's card.

Thanks for visiting. Your comments make my day.

Sympathy Card Soft and Sweet

This is another one of the cards I made a while back for my Mom's card stash.
Little did I know how these words ring true.


Front sentiment:
Thinking of you with sympathy during this difficult time.


Inside:
Those who have brought us joy, made us laugh, and shown us love have given us the lasting gifts of a beautiful life and blessed our memories forever. ~Bonnie Rickner Jensen

Unfortunately, our family suffered a heartbreaking loss.  My niece's son, only nine months old, passed away last week after unexpected complications from illness.
His mommy and daddy had to do the unthinkable.
No parent should have to endure what they must be going through.
Through all of it, they've encouraged us to hug our children a little tighter, love unconditionally, enjoy the little moments and breathe them in.

This little fellow, has left an imprint on my heart that will forever be with me.

Supplies include:  Unity Stamp Company Everything More, Beautiful Life Blessed Memories. My Creative Time dies.

Included with Unity Stamp Co. FWF.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.
