Engagement card

Hi Everyone.  Thank you for your sentiments on my Dear Brothers passing.  I really appreciate your kind thoughts.

Thank goodness for crafting to take my mind it all.  My "take my mind off" card today is an Engagement card requested by one of the girls in the office for her son.

The image is a free digi from the wonderful Dearie Dolls it was already coloured so no real thinking there, the red dot paper is by Summer Driggs, the larger back paper is just a red shape added in PS and I added an overlay of hearts by Marisa Lerin", I "Stickled" the hearts and added tiny eyes and a sentiment, all done in PS, then printed and mounted onto black card and placed onto the card.

 I used this sketch,
OK it's not quite the same, but I glued the dot paper in the
wrong place, my mind is off somewhere else!

Well Im not surprised you mind is somewhere else Faith and considering how you must be feeling you did a grand job. Martin and Mandy will love this but the black cat looks like he has a shiner I wonder did Mandy give it to him !

Take care.
