Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Round 1

Hi peeps! Finally, the moment we all been waiting for is here! The first round of Gallery Idol starts today.

This past week been such an exciting moment for me. From excited-oh-my-gosh to the nauseous-oh-my-gosh moment. LOL. All the girls are so talented and I can't say enough good things about each of them. Actually, today blogger decided to act up on some of us and Tiffany, one of the finalist, help me with my post today. Thank you, Tiff!! :)

The theme for the 1st round is Creativity Heals. I chose to do I miss you card. With my whole family live on the other side of the world (literally), I miss my family all the time. So, I am making this card with my mom in mind.




As soon as I saw this swing, I know I want to use it. I have an old picture of me and my brother on a swing and I think the empty swing is perfectly symbolize how much I wish I have my family here with me.

I cut the swing, birds, and the letters using my Silhouette. Love that machine! Did stitching around the borders, layered the swing and the birds, and add glitters to the sentiment. The pp is from Bo Bunny dots and the wood pp is from Andrea Victoria Faux Bois digital kit.

Please make sure you stop by the Paper Crafts gallery here to vote. You will need to register & confirm your registration to vote, but registration is free. Please take the time to look at everyone's creation. If you like my card, please vote for my card. I would love to make to the next round and would really appreciate your vote and support.

All I can say, I am so honored to have my card display along side all these super talented ladies. Getting to know these ladies has been such an awesome bonus. Good luck to everyone and thank you all for stopping by here. Hugs, Vera.
