Well, it has been quite a week for us at the Angerhofer household. I had this scene done earlier and was going to post it on the blog when my husband developed chest pains and of course, nothing else mattered but to get him to treatment and hospital care. Thank goodness we sought help right away as it prevented a heart attack. He had to have an angiogram and angioplasty done and now has two more stents in his heart and he is doing so much better. Praise the Lord for that! So I am sorry I have been missing in action. And, no doubt this may be the last posting until after Thanksgiving as I am way behind now on my cleaning. But I wanted to share this card with you first before I delve into that.
Shortly before this all happened I got an order of new dies in from Diamond Dies and I had to work up a card right away. I love the deer dies which in fact, is a whole family. And, isn't that a great tree? Perfect I think for fall and winter scenes. Along with the dies I used the snowflakes and sentiment from the Gina K. Designs Fabulous Holiday Fillers illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. And, my snow bank was fussy cut and using a sponge I added a little ink along the top to show the shadow of the snow bank.
With a Uni-Posca white paint pen I added some snow to the tree and also added a bit of white on the tail of the deer. Using a brown marker I also colored the antlers and put in some eyes. The deer was cut out of kraft card stock.
My snowflakes were stamped with Gina K. Designs white pigment ink onto Gina K. Designs light blue card stock and the sentiment was stamped with Gina K. Designs Red Hot dye ink onto the snowbank. To finish the card I simply added it to a base card of Red Hot Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury card stock.
This was an easy card to complete and do. I find it so fun to have some dies that work wonders for a card. Normally, I go for more the decorative type frames and backgrounds but I am so pleased with the look of this that I might have to invest in more of this type.
Anyway, now you know what has kept me occupied. But all is much better now and I am so very grateful and happy to have my man back home where he belongs. And, the Lord rode with me and helped me travel those icy roads for sixty miles to where he was hospitalized too.
I hope all of you have a great week and if I don't post again, have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I have much to be thankful for indeed!
