Here is the same card with photo corners added, the subtle difference is that instead of the background having rounded corners they are now squared off with the addition. I also wanted directional photocorners so that the word "love" was in the correct reading position top and bottom. I used a piece of index card, distressed with Tim Holtz distress inks, wrote "love" and then cut with the cameo. I know, I know I have this thing for photo corners. So here we are smack dab in the middle of the week, hope yours is progressing well, hugs.

Every day magic isn't just in nature, it is anything that moves you. As stated in the post below this, these little safety pins moved me this week. I did a closed pin as well as the open one from yesterday. Then I decided they would make a cute paper on this gelli-pull, so created the background paper using Photoshop6 and my Cameo.
Here is a little history for you too. April 10, 1849, Walter Hunt (he did some other neat stuff also) received a patent for the spring safety pin. I am sure that there were those out there 150+ years ago that thought these were magic. Although the first pins are credited to the Myceaneans in 13th to 14th century, they were called fibulas and were mostly used with brooches. What magic things are hanging around your table? Hope lots and lots of magic, have a great week, hugs

Last weekend a neighbor had a garage sale, it is not a neighbor I know very well, they are relatively new to our neighborhood and very busy, but we started talking at the garage sale, most of the items they were selling were from her mother, they had just put her into assisted living in AZ and they were selling some of her things in order to raise money to get her in a living center in this area, so they could be with her more. I found several things that would work for me and came home with arms loaded and heart warmed. So many of my friends have family in assisted living and although they all do the best they can to be there, there is still the feeling by the family member in assisted living that they have been or will be forgotten. I think that as we get older fear issues are not only real but contribute to stress and stress related illness. So I digress a bit, I have been incorporating some of my found treasures into my studio, one is a table top organizer with a drawer, I was cleaning it this weekend and pulled out the drawer and there in the back was a collection of safety pins all joined together on a larger one. For whatever the reason I was moved, the person was organized as she had fastened them all together and well, my imagination must have moved also, cause she just jumped right in and said "PLAY TIME".
So I created this card, all images and background are mine. I think I will give one to my neighbor to send to her mom. So as you travel through your week, keep in mind, someone you love may be feeling forgotten, so send them a card, hugs
