Oh yeah! It's Friday again! How much can we love a day? It's not about the day, but what it means...
Today is a great day because is Friday, but also because is the end of a very busy week and I'm looking forward to a long weekend to enjoy in a a relaxing place. We've been planning to have a couple of days off and we found a nice place by the beach to go this weekend. And they are pet friendly so it's a special getaway with our doggy-son. I'll tell you about it when I come back. So if you miss me this week, you know I should be fine.
On the other hand, I have to admit today also means the end of an awful week. And don't get me wrong... I love every moment of my life, but this week has been hard and sad. With all the work load and so many things happening, I also lost an uncle. A very special uncle. I usually try to be the strong one, but I admit I've cried a lot (actually I'm crying now). But the thing is that life goes on... and I just want to say that every occasion I remember with my uncle, I enjoyed his company. I'm also sad because of my mom. It's a special brother she just lost. But again, the show must go on and this is such an imperfect beautiful life after all.
For today's Unity FWF Friday, I thought I could use these stamps for the first time and somehow reflect my feelings from this week... These empty chairs and the sentiment remind me of my uncle. Plus, the handwriting embossing as background is like an unwritten letter or a symbol of a message to communicate.
I wanted to make a clean look card and I chose white and blue colors for it.
I embossed a light blue piece of card-stock for the background and inked the embossed section; and used darker blue to mat the stamped image.
I stamped the sentiment in a strip of white card-stock and shaped the extreme edges, inked, and added two brads with some baker's twine. I attached it placing a 3D square in the middle so it got a curvy imperfect look and the effect of movement (don't you see it moving? well, it's just me then...LOL!).
On a positive note, my blog just turned 2 years old. Thank you for all your support, your lovely comments, your inspiration, and your friendship. It's been fun to be a "scrap-booker blogger".
Finally, remember that since I'm linking this post to FWF today (I'm not sure if we will have one since Unity friends are at the CHA, but let's see...), when you leave a comment, you are participating in the Unity's FWF Friday, and you have the opportunity to win great quality beautiful stamps from Unity Stamp Co. Thanks Unity!
So, I'll be waiting to read your comments.
Have a great weekend!
