Xyron and Core'dinations!?! Oh yeah!

Hello and welcome to the Xyron and Core'dinations Blog Hop! 

I love Core. It matches EVERYTHING AND you can sand it, tear it, emboss it, love it! 

Core was so generous to us and gave us all some fabulous product! I got to play with the Vintage 6x6 pad and the Pastel Collection!

First up is my fun little Halloween card. I don't know what I was thinking with this funky vellum cover, but I love it!!

Second up is my tutorial for today and a card I was putting off making for quite some time. A friend lost their baby girl at 20 weeks - found out there was no heartbeat. Having had 3 miscarriages before Emmaline and being 20 weeks pregnant with our little girl this week - words cannot describe my sorrow for them. However, I have absolute hope and faith that this terrible heartbreak is just a puddle in their path and that they will hold a baby in their arms. They will meet their little girl someday and for now, she is being taken care of by the greatest parent of all in Heaven.

Yikes - I don't know if I posted my comment properly or not => sorry if it is waiting moderation and this one makes a double-up.

FUN card and PRECIOUS card - sorry to hear of your friends loss, I'm sure your card will be treasured!!! Thank you for sharing your tutorial, especially your inky inspiration to add sparkle, I think the sparkly edges are the perfect finishing touch :)
