Remember life's little things

Hi everyone it's Teresa here on this gorgeous Thursday in California with a post to remind you to always remember the little things in life.  Last week the angels came for my mom and when something tragic happens like that happens in your life you start remembering so many amazing times with that person during their lifetime.  It's a good thing to do and making up pretty things to cherish all those memories to remember your family and friends is really special and an even better thing to share with all of them as a gift in some way.  This would be a cute cover for a mini book too or maybe even a photo disc to give with pictures that you found tucked away like we did.


So this card is really simple using just die cut squares created with some papers and things sent to me from a fellow team member Yvonne. We both love to watercolor and little bears so i thought i would make up this card to put in some pictures i found to remember my mom.  The new "Remember die" was perfect to cut out and put at the bottom of the wood die cut she sent me.  I inked the "Remember" die a little on the top and the bottom to make it stand out and let it sit out on the card to make it more 3D.  Just something a little different.  And... The bear I colored on watercolor paper with Copic markers and colored it in subtle shades of brown and pink to match with the Maja Design papers.  It was quick and easy and i love the colors and my mom would have loved it too.


Here is a closeup of the die and the chalking.  You could even use a couple of different colors together and blend them with a sponge to make a pretty watercolor effect on it.  And just to make it more fun with the new release of dies I have 2 dies i would love to give away to 2 lucky readers. Just leave us a comment with your favorite dies you love in this new release and we will pick 2 of you to get the new Remember die or the new Memories die.  Both are great for cards and books and would be so handy to have in your stash to use.  


Thanks so much for dropping by and you have until Sunday night at midnight PST Sept 11th to get in on the drawing! Winners will be announced Monday on the Blog....

Have a wonderful day...
