WSC92: Love Beyond Measure

Weekend Sketch Challenge 92: Love Beyond Measure from the Unity 100% Happy set.  I adore this image and immediately knew I would rip a page out of an old Grange cookbook. Does anyone know what the Grange is anymore? I remember the Grange Hall being on the same country road as my grandparent’s farm when I was a little girl. I smiled as I looked thru all of these recipes from the 50 and 60s – do they still sell Dream Whip in stores?

You can see the sketch on Sharon’s blog this morning. Loved this one.  I used Cherry Pie paper from Cosmo Cricket’s Early Bird collection and matched it up with this Spring Willow Medium from Prism – color inspiration from an apron that I have of my grandma’s. I cut the focal images with Nestabilities and stitched – around the circle – I’ve been asked how I get even stitching on the circle and oval images – I turn the wheel on the sewing machine by hand when I want stitching in non-straight lines.  The image is colored with Copic Markers and then accent with clear Sukura glaze. The ribbon is silk from May Arts. I {heart} this stuff – so thin – ties beautifully – knots lay flat – ribbon perfection.

More sketch-spiration can be found if you visit Beate, Cambria, Charmaine, Jenn and Laurie.

Chris and Angela from Unity were at our very first cupcake event for advertisers in Anaheim 2008 – before the first stamp had been sold. Here we are at the SCS booth at the CHA SuperShow last weekend where they hosted a darling luggage tag Make & Take. We’ve never crossed paths with the Magnuson family in any fashion that they weren’t smiling, laughing and optimistic. Unity peeps = beautiful people.

I’ve actually got several other cards to post in the next day or two.  I always come home from CHA with creative brain overload – and it’s a wonder I can harness any of that for one particular project again, but I try.  I’ll try to post another card over the weekend. Hope your next few days are filled with moderate temps, plenty of sunshine and clear blue skies. Happy Friday!

  1. Wow – and good morning!! Love this card (since I love everything you make :))– I remember Dream Whip – came in a box!! My mom used it in EVERYTHING – some flavor of jello plus dream whip – hundreds of salads we made – the possibilities were endless! And I always got to lick the beaters and the bowl!! Thanks for the memory…
