My Maiden Voyage Trying Out Joanne Fink's Zenspirations Style of Lettering . . .
So, I have some two pocket folders that Daniel (my Freshman High student this year, UGH!) didn't use for school and I took one and cut it in half. Then I folded the half in half long-ways (or vertically). I then put the gift card inside the pocket and cut it off at the right height, and wallah! I had a blank bright yellow card, that when you opened it up had a pocket inside each cover. I thought this was pretty clever since I am by no means a card creator, LOL!
OK, so now back to the video I was watching. I was so Zenspired by Joanne's lettering that I figured I would give it a try on this card for Jen. If it came out like I was hoping, I knew Jensea would LOVE it and if it didn't come out like I was hoping, oh well I had more folders to try again :-)

So away I went, with most of the emphasis being on the capital J. I had just watched some patterning videos of hers and so i was in the "zone" for tackling this project.
Here is the finished card. It's nothing fancy but she did LOVE it and I am very PROUD of it. I know she will save it with all the other stuff she has in her Art Room which just warms my heart. Oh yeah, did I mention she is the daughter I never had! Just thought I might mention that again. I love her with all my heart and I think that is why the card came out so well for the very first try at this.

Big Hugs to you all!
