This week our cards are headed off to Ohio, to another Jennifer. It's strange for me, as Jennifer even has the same middle initial as I. Jennifer is dealing with a different strain of breast cancer, that has her going for radiation for quite a long time. Jennifer likes to wear fun and different socks when she goes for her treatments, so though they aren't shown here, I'm including a fun pair of socks to add to her collection.
Now I'll admit right off the bat, that this card was so easy to make. It was already done, except for stamping o the back side. It's been hanging on my wall, just waiting for this opportunity. So in all honesty, the hardest part of this challenge was getting a decent photo! I practically stood on my head to get a good photo. Thank goodness for digital cameras!
This card sparkles like crazy. Each diamond on the front is done with glitter c/s and the two spirelli circles are done with glitter c/s. The back has a silver , black glitter, and pink diamond, with stamping on the silver and pink. There again, I couldn't get a good photo, so no photo. On the pink diamond, Believe is stamped with a glittery agapanthus.
Each diamond is held together with the twine and a button. This does fold up nicely, though it may not look like it.
I'm also sending a little die cut Christmas stocking, made from the plaid dp I made and used for the CAS191 challenge, it has a cut little jingle bell on the curled toe. This is made with a Dee's Distinctively die.
