(Deck of Me - 11)

So for once I'm actually early to make and post my Deck of Me card. This time it's about my initials, which are T and J. It's a bit important for me to hold on the to J as it reflects a part of my personality. The T is for Trude, a name that means strenght* (from the old German Gertrude), and I suppose that's the side of me I most often want to show. The J is for Julie, meaning Light if I don't remember wrong. It's also a kind of romantic name as in Romeo and Julie(t). That's a side of me I don't show too often (I think), but it's still part of who I am.
This time I painted one side white with acrylic paint, used American Crafts rub-ons and Heidi Swapp chipboard letters.
Thanks for looking.
*some claim that it can mean loved too...
For en gangsskyld er jeg relativt tidlig ute med å lage og poste kortet mitt. Denne gangen er det initialene som skal til pers. Mine er T og J, for Trude og Julie som visstnok skal bety styrke/elsket og lysende. Ja ja, de speiler sider av meg.
Takk for titten :)
