TLC212 - Family

I made this card for Alicia Weiman and her husband. They seem to have such an amazing family! Based on what I've read, their family is always around helping out and offering their support. Not to mention Alicia and her husband. It's obvious that they are great parents in the way they nurture their children and live each day to the fullest. Ethan and Ava are lucky children to have such wonderful parents! I really feel like this sentiment suits them in so many ways.

I made the ribbon frame using this week's Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS (TLC212). It was harder than it looked, but in the end, I really like how it turned out. I LOVE brown, I LOVE contrast, and I LOVE clean and simple...so this card is definitely a true example of my style (though I feel like I'm still figuring out what my "style" is :O)
I used the Papertrey Ink Quilter's Sampler for this card. In the past I had a hard time creating something I really liked with this set. For some reason, it just worked out this time...thankfully!

I'm still finishing up the cards I'm making for Ethan and Ava...I have something special planned for them :O) Hopefully I can finish everything I want to do before we go to Tia's state gymnastics meet next weekend! Oh, and please keep Tia in your thoughts and prayers. She rolled her ankle at practice today and we're worried she might not be 100% for her state meet. If she does well at the state meet, she could qualify to go to the Regional meet...which is a big deal in the gymnastics world! She was pretty upset when I picked her up today...poor kid. With any luck, it's nothing serious and the swelling will go down before practice on Monday :| My fingers are crossed!


Supplies are listed in my SCS gallery. Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
