Manhattan Flower embossing texture folder
My dear friend Kylie volunteers at the 'Jesus Loves you' evenings. On Mondays and Tuesdays and Wednesdays and now also every other Sunday after church they provide free healthy meals for single moms or dads in Calgary and their children. I've been there. What an amazing group of people that care and love and invest in these families. They also help out in very practical ways. One evening they changed the oil of the moms cars, when school started they provided backpacks with school supplies, with Christmas there was a room full of beautiful gifts for the parents. The children were able to go in there and pick gifts they thought their parents liked.. What a place eh! I am sure all these things Make God smile.
So then Valentines Day came. Kylie came over and she had made 2 cd's for 2 moms in the group and she wanted to make 2 card to go with it. Oh.. I said, you can make a cover for the cd's and write something for these moms in the sleeves of the cover.. How cool. She was so excited and she made these 2 stunning cd sleeves. Aren't they gorgeous? She has talent. And she is so much like me.. It just has to be perfect. We laughed so hard.. We both can get so ticked off when something is just a little bit off. Well.. I have to say.. These covers are just PERFECT!
She used the Manhattan Flower textured impressions embossing folder. within 1 minute you have this incredible texture in your cardstock. She used the 'Real red' and the 'Basic Grey' cardstock. So stunning. Later I heard that the 2 moms, really loved her homemade gift. How cool is that. She rocks! She has a heart of gold that girl. These families are so blessed to have her around!
