TOFF#50 from the Octopode Factory calls for a Black and White Creation and the Delicious Doodles Challenge #20 calls for Diamonds (Diamonds are Forever - for the Diamond Jubilee) so I merged them into this sparkly black and white sympathy card. The image is from Delicious Doodles (my fav image from them). I printed two copies of the digi and then cut out the wolf and popped it up for more depth. I typed in the words using a white font. This is the latin translation of the Quote, "The Heart that truly loves never forgets" which is attributed to a chinese proverb, Thomas Moore, and Heart (I went with Heart having really liked them when I was younger). The words are: pectus pectoris ut verum diligo nunquam alieno which sounds really cool to me. - kind of calming. I used half a bottle of Diamon Stickles by Ranger on this card - on the wolves' breath, the trees, and all around the black panels (mainly to hide a little boo boo). I missed the challenge deadline for Delicious Doodles, but I was there in spirit (or should I say heart)!!!
Since my blog is called What's On My Kitchen Counter and you all probably know that my kitchen counter is never really as bare as it looks on my blog pictures, I thought I would share with you what was really on my counter when I first made this card. It's Allie! My sweet daughter who turned 17 this week. She still has that hair chalk in her hair from when our fav hair dresser (Callie) experimented on her at a hair show, and can you see she is busy shopping on-line with the birthday money she received? Who knew that there was a such thing as a cammo Hello Kitty Backpack?
Hugz and Happy Friday (at bit early but it is only a few hours away)!!!!
