Gold dipped sentiment

Hi All,

it has been a while since my last post, but things have been a little crazy around here with me being really REALLY sick, and then my little girl catching it the following week (and her first ever treatment with anti-biotics *sniff*). And all this while I was in the early stages of pregnancy. And to top it all off, I heard on Tuesday that my latest scans showed that little bubby had no heartbeat. I guess it was all too much for our little angel to bear. I was 9 weeks along.

So, I've taken the rest of the week off to relax and come to grips with everything. I am doing well (so far…), and am grateful for all the women before me who have been open enough to relate their experiences with miscarriage. I am so grateful to know I am not alone. It's not an easy thing to talk about, but I think its important. Especially since we've just observed Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day on October 15.

Still, if there was ever a day for papercraft therapy, today would be it, don't you think? And so thats what I did :) It did relax me and cheer me up somewhat.

About 3 hours after I told her my sad news, I received a bunch of 12 long stemmed pink roses from my bestie Denise…So I think I'll send her this card.

I embossed a rectangle stitched frame die by Lil Inker's Designs into a white panel. I then die cut the word 'thanks' out of some watercoloured paper that I coloured with Distress Markers and spritzed with a spray bottle. I then dipped the bottom half of the word in Versamark and heat embossed it in gold

  7. Oh, Preeya. I came here to laugh a bit with you because I think your comment to my card on FB was even funnier than the card itself... my husband and I already laughed until we cried with the "bovine" comment :).

    1. Aw, thank you Cris…I am so glad that 'bovine' comment made you laugh and not just roll your eyes! I was sure it was too cheesy, but as I said- I just couldn't help myself! What a great card it was though, Cris. I loved it! You are very talented :) And thank you for your words of comfort. I am doing better each day. xo
