I received this lovely piece from just_lisa. I love the flower accent. Thanks again.

The flower accent is my favorite part too, except for the pic.  It just made me think of how everyone used to dress to the nines to go out.  Kind of a Frank Sinatra thing.

oh, that is so lovely! everyone has done such a wonderful job on these.  I'm a proud mama here! (except I'm probably the youngest of the group, heehee!)

yay!! i'm glad it FINALLY arrived! i was starting to get worried!

i was going to include a note telling you about it, but i think i forgot (i'm terrible at that! i just send little cards cause i'm in a hurry to mail!)

the background is 6 vintage playing cards glued onto mat board, because you said your grandpa loved to gamble. the card on the upper left is a 2 of hearts, which i thought was cheesy and sweet, but it ended up barely visible after i did all the layers of colour washing.

i used a silicone transfer technique to transfer the photo. i used tattoo style stamps because of your grandpa's tattoo, and i stamped the yellow roses for your grandmother, the cross because you said they were catholic, and the love and the heart brad because they were together for so long. i wanted to try to make it about "them" as much as possible!
