Momlyn loved Christmas, dogs, and making cards, so here's a little tribute just for her:
The stamps and paper are from CTMH. The sentiment is hand written. I actually have a stamp that says "Fleas Navidog" which Momlyn bought for me (because she also loved a good word pun), but it's too large to fit inside the little sign over the doghouse door.
The dog has five layers of foam mounting tape. Yeah...it's a little overkill, but this is my first ever guest designer gig, and I wanted it to be extra special.
I used the following Copics for my coloring: E50, E53, E55, E57 (dog/doghouse); R00, R22 (nose/cheeks); and R29 (to color pearl accents). The icicles are Studio G glitter glue.
I made the pennants using regular kraft paper which I ran through my paper crimper. Remember paper crimpers? For some reason, I have pulled it out more in the last couple weeks than I have in the last couple years.
Momlyn did not call herself my mother-in-law. She said she was my mother-in-love. In many ways, she was a very different kind of woman. We are pretty sure she had Aspberger's (a form of Autism) and could not interpret non-verbal clues. It made communication challenging, and there are some really funny stories about miscues. But what she did do was raise four children who are all wonderful human beings. I'm partial the the baby of the family.
If you are so inclined, I'd appreciate you becoming a follower of my blog. I'm hoping to sell my novel at conference this year, and the more followers I have the better the publishing houses like it. Nothing like shameless promotion, huh!
Thanks to Karen for giving me the opportunity to share my tribute card.
Until next time,
