It is a beautiful Sunday morning here in Southern California and I am happy to be sharing Sweet Rubbernecker Sunday with all of you. Granted, I will be at church when all of you are reading this but that just makes it even better.
This Sweet Rubbernecker Sunday is going to be a little bit of a special one for me. I am going to be sharing a card that I now have made two of. I sent one to be put on the Rubbernecker example boards for while they are at the Scrapbooking Expos, and the most recent one I have made for my cousin. My sweet cousin is going through something I could not even begin to imagine. At a very young age she has become a widow this last week. Even though she lives thousands of miles away, and we hardly talk I do love her dearly. I feel a little handmade card right now will go a very long way.
I don’t think I could have done it better with the Thorny Rose from Rubbernecker Stamps. the Freehand Oval Frame outlines this rose just perfectly as well. I love this frame it is my absolute favorite.
This is why I love that I make handmade cards. Hallmark or any other mass produced cards are nice and they have very touching sentiments in them. But, something that is mass produced can never tell someone “I love you” or “I care about you” or even that you like them enough to take the time out of your day to make something with your own hands from your heart.
Now I know a lot of people will say “I can’t do that” but believe me… if you saw my first card I ever made… OI! HAHAHA! You would die laughing as hard as I do every time I take it out and look at it! It is horrible! But everyone has to start some where, right?
I hope that my cousin likes the card, actually I know that she will. I hope that you do as well.
