Cracked glass cards

I spoke with my mom today on the phone and she told me that an old neighbor of ours in PA was diagnosed with breast cancer and was to start on chemo this week. So, I thought I would make her a card to let her know that I was thinking about her. I have been wanting to do the cracked glass technique and yesterday I went to ACM and found the UTEE powder, so bought it. Today I set about to make these cards. It is a neat technique and I kinda like how they turned out. I used the SU set Send a Celebration, which is retired. Also used some Stella Ruby paper by Basic Grey. I love that paper. I kinda coordinated the colors that I used the crayola pencils and gamsol on the stamp to the paper. I told mom about this technique and thought I would make her one too. I also made another one for an old family friend who is housebound because of heart problems. I forgot to take a photo of that one and it is sealed up in the envelope to be mailed out tomorrow. I hope I can brighten up their lives a little. Everyone likes to know that they are thought about.
Thanks for checking in with me today. I appreciate your visits to my little blog.
Cheryl out!!
