Hello, my name is Juniper Goblinfly

Happy Wednesday! I am sure you are wondering about that strange title :) Well, the story goes like this: Over a year ago, sweet Deborah informed us that Ruth, a friend from the Hero Arts flickr group, was struggling with cancer. She had the fabulous idea to anonymously send her cards to lift up her spirits. Over 50 ladies sent out cards to her and her family and to be able to sign the cards, we were each given a fun fairy name. Mine was Juniper Goblinfly. Ruth is much better now and here we are revealing our identity. These are the cards I sent her:


On the first one I did some layered stamping with the lavender image and added some punched butterflies.


On the second one I created that background using distress inks. Then I stamped with a lot of different stamps, using Versamark spritzed with water and dark dye ink. The butterfly is colored with pencils and a white gel pen.

I hope Ruthie liked them! Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Es ist großartig, wenn jemand dem Krebs die Stirn bieten kann - viell. haben die Karten ja auch einen Teil zur Genesung beigetragen...Ich bin auch sicher, dass sie sie gemocht hat! Mein Favorit ist die blau-gelbe, aber beide sind wunderschön!

Liebe Vanessa,

das ist eine wunderbare Idee und wird Ruth viel Mut und Kraft gegeben haben.

Beide Karten sind traumhaft schön geworden, die erste ist mein Favorit, sie schaut so schön zart aus und versprüht Hoffnung.

Alles Liebe
