Flight of the Fuschia, that is!
Welcome to another Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes. Today's image is Nina's beautiful "Flight of the Fuschia".
This week, it was my turn to present the challenge. My challenge you is to grab this wonderful image, and create a comforting card, such as: Thinking of You, Get Well, Sympathy, Encouragement, etc. I also offer a little twist - if you have them, include flourishes and/or pearls on your card!
It's very hard to see, but I have used Versmark Dazzle and stamped a flourish at the top right and bottom left of my card. The pearls are pretty obvious! All coloring is done with Tombow markers, and the bird is colored with my clear Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pen. The flourish stamp is from TAC, and the sentiment is from Gina K. Designs. The DP is from a DCWV mat stack.
And thanks to my DT sistah, Kim, I am being inspired to finish the inside of my cards as well!!!
It was very ironic to me when the image Nina gave me for this challenge was this beautiful dove carrying the Fuschia sprig. I cannot remember a time that my dear mom wasn't growing these lovely plants. She loved them with a passion. When mom passed away in Dec. 1999, the Hospice group brought me a gorgeous china figurine that was doves and fuschia plants. It still sits front and center on our fireplace mantle. This time of year is when I miss mom the most. We have all of the fall and winter holidays, and then her birthday was Jan. 18. The day that I opened my email from Nina with this attachment, I'd actually been having a quiet cry while thinking of mom - thus the irony! Thanks Nina, for unknowingly bringing me some peace that day!
Okay, enough of that!!! I hope that your Monday is magical, indeed! With good luck, we will NOT get the additional 5-7" of snow predicted for Mon. and Tues!
Have a great day! Can't wait to see what you all do with the Flight of the Fuschia!!!
