The Power of Cornflowers for 2 Occasions with TCCC no 224 design team projects

Using this sweet summery digital image of cornflowers in a mason jar (SheepSki Designs) was a delight for get well wishes on a horizontal format and a belated birthday card on a vertical format!

One image for 2 occasions=

get well wishes for an elderly couple (in their 90s) who both took a tumble recently and received minor injuries


belated birthday wishes for an uncle; 5 days late; oops!--this aunt and her husband, uncle by marriage, have beautiful perennials at their home, several birdfeeders by their family room window, have 2 awesome barn quilts painted by their grandson on display on their nearby barn; I thought a nature theme card would be good for his 82nd birthday.

for TCCC blog #224 reveal on August 1, 2019= theme choices are steampunk or ribbon & lace= my cards are just with ribbon, a navy blue satin ribbon, used in different ways [ID badge is a few lines down]


prize sponsor and digital supplier for the design team= SheepSki Designs' ID badges (get prize details and their store link on TCCC's #224 posting)

Facebook groups to share:
1. Paper, Paper, Paper & Design Team Calls = sharing site for crafting bloggers (both cards)

2. Mixed Media Creativity = my group for crafting artist friends and family to share their mixed media projects; (I'm going to showcase the belated birthday one because of the glittered tag stick-on with additional butterfly enamel dot plus the large butterfly enamel disc and the ribbon besides the paper products.)

3. SheepSki Designs Community group= crafting visitors can post their projects using their images
(for both cards)

Challenge blogs to link-up=
A. Not Just Cards Challenges= anything goes theme for July 2019 is still open for a few more days
(for either card)

B. Bleeding Art challenge blog for mixed media= anything mixed media except scrapbook layouts; the linky widget said it was still open but it might be closed by the time I can get this revealed; we shall see; I want the belated birthday card to be the showcase for this link-up

C. Little Red Wagon challenge blog = theme started Wed. 7/31/19 is Digi Do--include a digital image on your project! ( I can used either one.)

more scans/cropped photos of both cards--
