Deck Of Me Weeks 6 - 14

I got a little behind on the challenges that Emily throws down to us every week. Yesterday though I got inspired and I finally got myself caught up (as well as covered in paint, glitter, embossing powder, glue and microbeads).

Here they are in order....

Week 6 - Love

For this card I used a photo of Crockett and I on our wedding day and one of my favorite quotes "For you see, each day I love you more. Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow."

Week 7 - Shoes - Theres Always a Story

I have used a photo of Lollys feet that I altered the colours of in photoshop. I then made an overlay with the "NO SHOES" out of a sheet of OHT. The journalling on the back reads.."I am not a big fan of fact I only own 6 pairs of shoes. Two pairs of crocs..a pair of thongs..a pair of sneakers and two pairs of boots. Give me the freedom of bare feet any day!!"

Week 8 - Who (or What) You Miss

Who I miss....easy....I miss my mum and dad. The journalling reads " Even though we haven't lived near each other for well over 10 years..not a day passes where I don't miss you both. You are both always in our thoughts and dreams...and each day we count down until we see you again!

Week 9 - Inspired By...

The journalling reads "I recently had the oppourtunity to attend a workshop run by Lance Anderson from Rusty Pickle. I came away with my head full of ideas and new techniques I wanted to try. So Lance Anderson I was inspired by...U." I have used some of the leftovers from the workshop on the card.

Week 10 - Note To Self

I had a lot of fun with this card...playing with paint and embossing powder to get the grungy look I was after. The journalling is pretty easy to read on this card.

Week 11 - Your Initial

Again I tried different ways to use paint on the card. I stuck a lot of letter "s" stickers on the card and painted over it...I let the whole thing partially dry...peeled off the stickers and wiped a dry sponge over the card. The journalling on the back gives the origin of my name.

Week 12 - I Believe

The journalling reads "I believe that these two goofy girls hold the keys to my heart and to our future. I believe that I am lucky to have the chance to be their mum.

Week 13 - Whats On My Mind-

I covered the back of this card with some Michael Miller fabric before I stamped it. The journalling reads. "I know that in a few short months we will be back on the same soil again. I can't wait!"

Week 14 - Birds

For this card I stitched the flourishes on the bird, and on the back I have used a picture from an old childrens book and painted over the whole thing with a thined out brown paint. The jouranlling reads " I'm not sure why but lately I find myself drawn to bird images. Maybe it has something to do with wanting to out of this deep, dark place I am in at the moment. Who knows, but these birds sure are cute!
