Simply Neutrals #29 - Cherish

Hello friends, 

A big 'Thank you' to Wen for hosting 'Simply Neutrals Tuesday'. 

Today I'm sharing a card I made a while ago for my sister. I saw it hanging on her cupboard door when I visited her recently just before Christmas, and took this photo.

And a card I made for a friend's first baby... I love the word 'cherish' - it calls to mind the precious smell of a baby and all those sweet moments that seem to pass so quickly.


I love the daisy peeping over it here:


Lastly, an angel I picked up on sale because it was broken. I managed to fix her broken wing with plaster of paris - she's as good as new... she's my guardian angel representing peace, along with a beautifully scented candle of tranquility and serenity.


Have a creative and productive week, my friends. Don't forget to check out the other participants of 'Simply Neutrals Tuesday' on Wen's blog here.

Love and hugs,

Jesse XXX

  1. Such beautiful cards you have created here Jesse! Please keep creating these lovely treasures! When you are feeling down turn to your beautiful angel whose wing you have repaired and know that you are loved and the angels will fill your heart with love and you too will feel repaired bit by bit!
    Great to see you have joined the SNT party again.
    It's so wonderful to be able to support Wen who has taken this on for all of us again!
    Take care to nurture yourself through creating!
    Big warm hugs,
    Suzy

  2. Hello dearest Jesse, how wonderful to see you posting and joining again! Thank you so much for your sweet words, and you're so welcome :) I hope the new year and the SNT gatherings will bring you peace and joy, dear friend. Your cards, oh my, they are so sweet and gorgeous, with their beautiful layers and the warm love they speak. I would have loved to have a sister and am very blessed to cherish the memories of young motherhood. The holding of your baby in your arms, one of the sweetest things in life. How gorgeous is the angel as well, and how wonderful you could repair it! You created a beautiful little place of peace and serenity there. Sending you big hugs and love, may your day be filled with joy, peace, and love, xx

    1. Hello Dear Wen! Thank you for your uplifting and positive presence on the Internet. The sense of women's friendship on SNT blogs is so warming, and even though we all have different life stories, we can all enjoy and celebrate the warmth shared in our various artworks and be inspired by others' creations. I really feel for those among us who have had a tough time over the past year or so, as I have, and I was so glad you were all still here, still creating (or storing up potential to), still affirming, still celebrating the beauty of our world.

      Thanks again Wen for hosting. Let's enjoy its season while it blooms...
      Peace and hugs with much love,

      Jesse XXX
