Hi everyone, A nice cool day here today with some much needed rain. well Mondays card class has just finished ( Ive had my husband and kids helping me over the holidays which has been a real blessing) and I'm home checking my emails etc so i thought while i have a quiet moment Ill post today's cards. I have to mention this first though....we were out on the weekend and our youngest daughter lost her bag with her new i pod, phone and....you know all the stuff teenagers put in their bags well she was frantic looking for it and realized she might not get it back ....she was so up set because we had just bought her an i pod as a gift for selling so many chocolates for our fund raising for the bike for bibles ride. I was upset because i knew how sick in the gut she felt and this was while we were having our card morning with the ladies today. We always have a prayer time in our morning tea and i started to pray but cracked up when it came to mentioning the missing bag. God so knows when we need that extra support and one of my beautiful ladies stepped in and continued the prayer for the bag. She said to me latter post this on your blog when you find the bag.....and that caught my attention because it was so positive that the bag would be found. My daughter prayed and had also said to me through tears, Mum i really think the bag is at home....(we had looked everywhere!!) So when we got home i went in first and quietly told our other kids what was happening....Our son so casually say back as they do...."Oh that's in our other car we put it under the seat so it would be safe". Well Madaleine kissed and hugged him and we all breathed a prayer of thanks. God is interested in every part of our lives no matter what and we should never underestimate the power of prayer especially when we pray for and with each other. Thank you Judee I love you !! Ok now on with the swans.......
1 Quic kutz heart die
8 med leaf punch
1 small heart punch cut in half
1 small star punch for the beaks
Lightly edge these punch out in black
Now using small spots of glue ...i use a tooth pic... glue the first 2 leaves to the heart.
Next using foam tape stick on 2 more leaves.
Foam tape the next 2 behind for the swans tails.
And with the last 2 you will need to round off the stem end of the leaf and foam tape these as the swans wings so they cover up all the other stems.this is the main body done.
to make the heads cut the heart in half and glue in behind the curls of the heart.
i don't know why my camera started taking pink pics all of a sudden ...must of been the light angle???
Next cut off 2 points of the star and glue these pointing down behind the base of the heads. Add Small eyes with a fine marker....and i added small lines above the eyes to define the face
and your done.....just add it then to your card. here's a close up of my card
and our second card we made ...........until next post....Valita
