Missing My Brother
I miss my brother. I haven't been able to see him in a very long time. So I made him this card to let him know.
First, I inked up PTI's Woodgrain Impression plate with some white craft ink. I ran it through my Big Shot with some Kraft Paper. Then I cut out a circle using my Nestabilities. On the Vintage Cream cardstock, I stamped the tree image and then the bird. I received some gorgeous Divine Twine from my friend Cathy and used it to tie on the Tiny Tag. I don't own the Tiny Tags set or dies, but was able to borrow them from a wonderful friend, Noora.
I stamped the other bird on top of the heart and the sentiment miss you. See how those cute birdies are separated? That's how I feel without seeing my beloved brother in such a long time. Hopefully I'll be able to visit him this summer. I miss his smiling face.
That's it for now. I have other projects in the works but I'm not sure when I'll be posting them. I really, REALLY want to get my craft room re-painted. Right now it is beige and red with a black and white border. It used to be a boy's room before we moved in. Not a very inspiring environment. Well, 3 years later and I still haven't redecorated it. Ideally I would like to get it done before the summer arrives. Crossing my fingers!
