Peaceful View

Today I want to share a card with you I made while in Wisconsin with Sharri Seffens. Sharri offered to show me this wonderful brayer technique that she learned. This card seems so very peaceful and serene to me and at this moment, I feel it's exactly what my family and I need right now. My father-in-law just found out the cancer we thought he had whipped has spread. It was quite a blow to the family. I don't know how much his frail body can take right now but I do know that I want nothing more him that comfort and love. He is a very special man and I love him dearly. Sharri and I both made similar card fronts but when I left... she did her "layout" and I went home and did mine. Though they are the same front... the embellishments and design are our own. But... as it ends up... even our designs ended up very similar. Ha! How funny is that? I think we're psycho, how about you?? Ok, don't answer that. LOL I know I will use this technique many times because not only is it easy... it was fun and to see it emerge as you work on it is almost in a sense magical. Thanks Sharri for welcoming my kids and I to your home and taking the time to stamp and share with me. Come back tomorrow and I will share the "other" card we created together. *smile* Signature

Beautiful layout!
So when are you coming back to WI to stamp with me again? It would be so much fun to see you again! It would also be fun to get a group of us from STV together to stamp.
