And the lion layed down with the lamb...
I don't usually post personal stuff on here but I am off work today because I am going to attend my Aunt's funeral and it is also my birthday! My Aunt was very dear to me. You know how some people are just good with kids? Well she was. She would do crafts with me. She would order a craft kit just for her and me to work on every month! My Mom (her Sister) died when I was five and my Aunt was like a surrogate Mom to me! Anyway, she was 87, in a nursing home, had pneumonia and was ready to go Home. I will celebrate my birthday this weekend. On Friday I am going to spend the day with my daughter and we are going to see New Moon. Then I am going to Gatlinburg, Tenn. with some of my girlfriends for the weekend. So I woke up at 4:00 in the morning and saw that they had posted the new sketch for the Midnight Madness Sketch #28 so I decided to make a card for it.
The stamps are StampinUp. I cut out the lion and the lamb and gold embossed the saying and the star. I ran the strips through the Cuttlebug. I gold embossed the green strip and rubbed green ink on the gold strip. I received the patterned paper in a kit and it didn't have the name of the designer on it. I added brown leaves, a dove from Joles wedding set and put a leaf in its mouth. I added a tassel from my stash. Thanks for stopping by!
