Hi There; Hope you all had a lovely weekend.I learned Friday evening my Uncle Walter had passed away. My father was one of eight, with Uncle’s passing there are only two brothers left. As a child nearly all of my family lived on the same country road. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and LOTS of cousins. My daily life was filled with family. Sadly over time most move away and because of his poor hearing I hadn’t spoken to my uncle in many years. Still as I made cards for my aunt, cousin, and uncles sweet childhood memories filled my head.
When they were first married my Aunty Violet hated being alone at night while Uncle Walter worked. I was just a little thing but every evening just before dark I would walk next door to keep her company till Uncle got home. I don’t really remember what we did all evening but at bed time she’d tuck me into Uncle’s side of their big bed. When he got home he’d gently pick me up and carry me to the guest room. Most nights he’d wake me but I always pretended I was asleep because I knew just before he’d put me into bed he would kiss me on the forehead and whisper ’Bless you’ then tuck me in. It always made me feel like a princess.
This card is for my aunt. I began by embossing my card base with Lattice Rectangle. I wrapped my ribbon around the card base and added a printed prayer on the inside to hide the ribbon. I printed my sentiment then cut and embossed it with a smaller Lattice Rectangle. The leaves are Spellbinder’s Foliage. The flowers from my stash.
