Sister


  

Here's my card for the CASology knit challenge. Don't see how I used the cue word?  Let me explain.  The first thing that came to my mind was "close knit" as in close knit family. My sister & I are only 19 months apart & we weren't close at all in high school. However, now that we're both adults (& don't have to share a room--LOL!) we truly love & value each other. I bought this stamp years ago (from a company no longer in business) as it was perfect for my sister who loves butterflies.  The Penny Black butterfly die is used to emboss the piece & then I stamped with Versafine Majestic Blue--my sister's favorite color. This is actually take 4 because I had a terrible time getting my splotches of Tattered Angels Graphite Glimmer Mist not too big & not on top of a word. Finally I figured out to cover the stamping with scratch paper--whew! This beautiful white specialty yarn, gives me another connection to knit, right?! Stickles & tiny black pearls embellish the little butterfly. 
I appreciate you taking time to stop by during this busy holiday season.
