Jeanette's Archive

Hey Ya'll! Good news! I no longer have a cast on my hand, Yay!!  I went back to the doctor last week and he removed the cast and gave me a removable splint to wear. I only wear it when I am doing any heavy lifting and such as that. I am now able to make cards without too much trouble, and cook , and clean, and... My Hubby is ecstatic! He has hung in there for too long, and I am so grateful for it!
I have a card for you today that I played around with a bit. I intentionally double stamped and off set the image to produce a calligraphy look with negative space. Does that make sense? This is a new stamp from CTMH that came out of Jeanette's archives( the Founder and CEO of Close To My Heart). I also punched some small flowers and used some Vintage stationary as my background mat. Found it in the drawer when I was rummaging around looking for something. I decided I would use it on a card because who really sends handwritten letters anymore? I know I haven't for years, obviously! Just thought I would share and let you know that I'm back in business for the time being! Thanks for looking!

Supplies- Vintage stationary and seam binding for the bow from my stash, Outside sentiment: CTMH "Flowering Thanks" Jeanette's Archives, Small flowers: EKSuccess punch "Mini Flowers", Inside sentiment: Studio G, Border punch: Martha Stewart "Leafy Vine".



Happy to hear your back in business:) The vintage stationary looks really pretty for the background of your stamped image. Really nice card ,look forward to seeing more.
