Hope you all had a great weekend...I sure had a good one...My son and one of his daughters took me to Christmas in the park..what a beautiful calm night, the singing was lovely, and Santa arrived suspended from a helicopter, sitting in his chair...a very brave man, I must say...
Thousands of people there, and the most spectacular fireworks display at the end, and a mans voice telling the story of Christ, as each firework went up, just beautiful...very moving.
And talking of very moving...I have made a card to share.
This is the story that went with this freebie image...
I was thinking about my daughter when I drew this picture and how she's going to miss her dad at Christmas. She's a daddy's girl and I thought how cute it would be to have a military snowman and a little girl hugging it.
However, not everyone has a family member serving overseas for the holidays and so I just went with the general idea of a little girl hugging the snowman.
But, now you know the origin of the image. :)
Now this drawing was done by my very talented team mate over at 'Make it Monday' Lisa Minckler
And, it really moved me when I read her story..I deal with people young and old everyday, and I here a lot of..".can't have a Ham this year, too expensive"...."What rubbish movies on Christmas day"..couldn't get" Watties peaches have to have Oak peaches, dont like Oak"...moan, moan, moan.. it made me think.......
Coloured with pencils, added lace, papers are Basic Grey 'Infuse'
Close up of image...I think it is a great drawing, cant tell if you can see the sparkles at this stage, but they are on her tights and hat, and the snowmans scarf...all the snowflakes have glitter too, and used white gel pen for the dots around the image.AND..used my brand new circle die, had it on lay-by
for ages...always had the scallop one and used to cut the scallops off, but this is sooo much easier.
The sentiment is computer generated and the font is 'Storybook'.
So there you have it..a very brown card, but suited the image..
Hope I've done it justice Lisa...
I'm off to get ready for work...Tuesday morning for me, quite a long day today, then I have the boys after school and getting their tea done etc...then I can come home and crash...Amen!!
