Waffle Flower Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Waffle Flower Crafts New Photo Challenge!!  The colors for this challenge are so pretty.  I was in awe when I say the colors.  They are so deep and very rich!

I thought long and hard about what I wanted to create using these colors.  It had to be meaningful because the colors called for it.  So I decided that I wanted to use the new DT Mix Stamp Set.

The sentiment ” You Will Forever Be My Always”, has a deep sentimental meaning in the corners of my heart.  I have a small story for you, you might need a tissue. So get ready.

A couple of years ago before my daughter was born, her father and I use to listen to the radio in the car all the time.  There was one song that use to come on all the time.  It was a country song by a women I didn’t recognized.

At first we didn’t realize that song played each and every time we were in the car together.  One evening he picked me up from work and the song was on and I asked him if he knew what the name of the song was or who sang the song.  We loved the song but didn’t know the name of it.  So right there and then, I called that radio station to find out who sang the song and the name.

The DJ said it was Forever And For Always by Shania Twain.  He asked me if I wanted to hear it and I said yes, and dedicated it to Ray!  That song became our song.  He always said we will be together “forever and for always”,  because “we just fit”.

December 25, 2005 we found out that we were going to have a baby, on December 28, 2005 he died from cardiovascular disease.  He never did get chance to see our daughter who is going to 9 this year, but he did keep his promise.  He is with me through her “Forever and for Always”!

So I made my card in memory of him!

Take a look:

You Will Forever Be My Always1

Thanks Tessa for creating that sentiment just for me!  I love how this card turn out. Its a CAS card with a lot of sophistication.

I learned this Border Gap Die-Cutting and Masking technique from the Online Card Class Clean and Simple 4.

This card was easy to create.

Just use a border die and cut my front panel into three pieces.

Then I used masking tape to cover up the different “waves” so that ink doesn’t transfer onto them while I’m blending.

Once the blending is done, I stamped my sentiment at the top and added some gold sequin to highlight the sentiment.

I added foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered it to the card front.

Once you know what to do, its a breeze to recreate this card again.

So what do you thing of my card?  Now you know a little bit more about me. So what do you thing?

I’m going to live you with the video of the song so you can listen the words of the song.
