My Favorite Thoughts

I have been attempting to do the kind of layering in my cards that I see in some of my favorite designers cards; like Becca Feeken and Andrea Ewen.

I love the Spellbinders dies for their intricacy and layerability so I have used four die cuts for the center medallion on this card as well as three layers of the background papers.  I really have to think about it a lot and review some of my favorite designers creations  before starting.  Hopefully, it will become second nature as it seems to be for them!

Besides the Spellbinders Dies, I have used a Prima Flower, a Webster’s Pages Cameo Pin, a rayon seam binding bow and a triple pearl pin that I do not know the name of .  Perhaps my friend, Milu, from whom I buy these pearl pins can comment and tell me where they come from.  The stamp is a Verve stamp with a quote from Georgia O’Keefe.  The ink that matched the background paper perfectly doesn’t show up well on camera.  I hope you can read it.  Remember, if you click on the photo, you will get a larger view.

I hope to hear from my subbies;  I always appreciate you comments!!

About Charlotte Zweigoron

Married, retired, never been so busy..! One of my most prized possessions is my very own craft room! And, actually, all the rest of our home is built around that craft room. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have been living in Georgia for over thirty-five years after a four year stint in Chicago. Crafting, reading and playing Mah Jongg with our circle of friends are my favorite activities right after spending time with my four grandchildren and four great-grandsons. Two of my three grown daughters and one of my two grandgirls live right across the yard from my husband and I. The youngest daughter, her husband, and our grandpups live in our same town. I have been teaching a paper crafting class for over three years and the ladies in the group have become a second family. We are well and truly blessed with people and critters to love..!

    Love the various shades of blue. Of course your favorite thoughts are sweet – mine go more to the “chewing through the leather straps” side. LOL
