A Memory Lasts Forever...

Hi guys. Today I wanted to share a card that I made for Kelly Marie Alvarez (A.K.A. Mrs. Lawn Fawn). Last week, her grandpa passed away and a few amazing souls started a card drive for she and her family. I couln't NOT participate in this. Kelly Marie is one of the SWEETEST girls I've met through crafting/blogging. She's been super sweet to me and has extended many kind wishes my way when I needed them most. There is simply no one like her. The inside of the card is stamped with a sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Say Cheese II set "A Memory Lasts Forever". I wanted to keep the outside plainish. The patterned paper and jeans just made me think of my grandpa, who we lost 2 years ago :(.

I went rustic and (finally) got #10 checked off my "32 Things to Do While I'm 32" list: "Use my Old Jeans for Art" :). I used THIS Sizzix Rose cutting die to create the two roses and spun the other flower by hand. The patterned paper is from Crate paper and the Rustic Twine is Papertrey Ink.

Anyway, I hope she likes it and that it brings a smile to her face. Thanks for peeking and I hope this week is off to a good start for ya.


  1. Congratulations on getting more checked off your list with this seriously beautiful and rustic card. You've got a heart of gold.

  2. Great card girl, miss you. Hope everything is good with you and your family
