Forever Young

An update on cards - I decided to change them:

I joined in the October Card Swap on a theme of Autumn - Leaves - Silhouette. I knew I wanted to use my Stampin' Up Forever Young stamp set and decided to add the lovely girl on a tree swing to a sprayed background as a silhouette. Here they are:

There's another care with Thinking of You on but it hadn't quite dried when I took the piccies. I used Dylusions sprays on white card that I had put masking tape round the edges of. I lined the sprayed area with black promarker then stamped the image and the sentiments (Stampin' Up! Sassy Salutations) in Onyx Black versafine ink. I'll probably do the outline again tomorrow once they are bone dry, before posting them.

Give yourself a hug

World Mental Health Day (10th October) passed by fairly uneventful for me this year, though it didn't pass by unmarked. I made an art journal page for my Circle Journal "Word Play"  using the word HUG. The saying is particularly poignant to me and my husband at the moment and I'm sure there's plenty of people out there who need reminding to pull on their own inner resources - remember just how strong you are.

Stay well and always talk to someone when you're in pain.
