Russ is having a hard time with everything. Yes, I am too, but I am not in the position that he is in, so there is no feeling sorry for myself. I do what I have to do, and lean on my Almighty God at ALL times for the strength to get me through.
One of the hardest things for Russ is eating. He is so hungry, but he has an awful taste in his mouth. One thing he does is suck on mints to help. He has always loved cinnamon hearts and so I crafted for him today.
I took a Sea Salt refill bottle and covered it with the new Love Letter DSP (#117162). I used 2 new ribbons from the SU catty, Victoria Crochet Trim (#118481) and the black 1/8 taffeta (#119261). The red CS strips on the top and bottom of the DSP are from a new Sizzix Die in the mini that STARTS TODAY !! It is called Tasteful Trim (#120893) and it cuts 4 different strips appr. 12 inches long!! The black rhinestones are also in the new mini (#120987).
Here is a close up of the tag that I created. The red layer is punched with the Decorative Label (#120907) and then matted on black. I cut that layer by hand, and then added the eyelet to it for my ribbon. The sentiment was stamped in black from Oval All (#113790), and I used my white gel pen (#105021) to accent the letters. I stuck on one more rhinestones and then adhered it to the botte with dimensionals, so that it wouldn't move around.
This will hopefully be a nice surprise for his desk this morning. Tootles, have fun and happy stamping!!
