I came across this little flower image this morning while looking for a different stamp and could resist making a card with it. The image looks like it was drawn by a child and reminds me of Bjorn.
It’s probably been a couple of years since I taught him how to draw flowers, trees, the sun, etc. He was one who always wanted me to do his drawing for him, and I obliged until one day when I told him, “You can do this, Bjorn.” I had him copy what I was doing and praised his every stroke of the marker. When he was done, he was so proud. And while his drawing has improved significantly, he’s still doing things the way I showed him. His sun always has a smiley face. So sweet.
About my card, I stamped my image on textured cardstock and colored it with markers. I used foam tape to mount the image to the card base. Simple. Sweet.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy Textured and Black cardstock; Black ink pad; Holiday Red, Topiary, Dutch Blue, Sunflower, and Chocolate markers; Stampendous Field of Blooms Cling stamp and CTMH Say it in Style stamp set; Ribbon from Wal-Mart; Black mini brads; 3M foam mounting tape.
Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m busy today doing all the stuff I didn’t do yesterday. I think it’s just going to be Grandpa and me celebrating, and I think he’s about given up with regard to “doing” something. He mentioned a half a dozen or so different places to go out to eat with none of them causing me to jump up and down with excitement. After 32 years, he should know food is not the way to my heart. I eat to live (as opposed to live to eat) and am just as happy with a peanut butter sandwich as I am with steak and lobster. Now, if he’d go out and get me a box of chocolates … LOL.
No, I’d better get back with the program. I hope your day is wonderful. Thanks for stopping by!
