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
I am entering these cards into two challenges. The Virginia's View CAS challenge and PTI's Gold tipped die cuts MIM challenge
I hope you likey! Until next time
