Just A Note From Me to You Happy Mail

This is another happy mail card I recently sent to a friend in the States who had cataract Toric Lens implant eye surgery on Jan. 4th. She was very nervous about it, but says that her vision is so bright and clear now, and feels blessed that technology has lifted the "fog" of her sight.

I used papers from a 12x12 paper pad called "Tea Party" . The yellow layer was cut on the corner with a Tim Holtz mixed media die which reflects the same pattern as on the paper. The edges were sponged with Broken China distress ink. The circle image is a Just Rite stamp coloured with watercolour pencils, Gold Stickles glitter on the centre of flowers, and this is layered on another lacey circle (spellbinders die cut from the same rose paper as the background). Sorry for the photo quality - I took the pic at night because I wanted to walk to the mail box and get the card in the mail. The yellow is actually a nice rich buttercup yellow - looks faded here from the flash.

The butterfly die from Memory Box is also from the same paper pad. I positioned the bottom layer die over a rosebud for the main body of the butterfly with the gold shiny paper extending out to the wings, and the top layer is a scrap of the same pink & blue rose background paper.

A wide sheer ribbon bow finishes the card.

Last night was wild weather night - high winds gusting to 100 km's, and heavy rain which took away all our snow. Power was out in parts of our area of Town; however, we were fortunate we didn't lose ours . The sun is now trying to peek out of the dark clouds and it is very mild. Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to drop again and snowflurries. Crazy weather!

Thanks for popping to read my blog and I enjoy reading your comments.
