Lost Lagoon of Hope

Good morning, Friends! I hope you are all ready for a great weekend! I know I am! I surely do hope I start getting some great news! And yesterday was a start!! My friend Becky is finally out of the hospital!! Here is for a speedy recovery period so that she can finally come home! We miss you, Becky!! Yesterday I had a massage. On the way there and then especially on the way home I heard a weird noise on the car. By the time I got home the car would not move. Oh great! Had to call a tow truck so we are waiting to hear what that all means. But it doesn't sound good. There was another incident that happened yesterday, too, but I won't bore you all with those details. The day started out great! I got my box of new Stampin' Up! goodies!! But after all this yucky stuff, I just didn't have the energy to go and use it. :( Today I am doing a fun sewing class and I get to see my friend, Sherry! Woohoo!! So maybe this weekend? Well, I will have to do some stamping - lol! Gotta get caught up before I leave!

Today's card was one I did for a recent swap I was in. I think it's been mailed out even though I haven't gotten mine yet. 

  • Card base is Sahara Sand
  • On a layer of Sahara Sand, stamp the Hardwood background stamp in Sahara Sand
  • Adhere a strip of Mossy Meadow that has the ends trimmed at an angle then adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Use the scallop edge border punch to scallop the edge of a piece of Whisper White and round the corner with the corner rounder
  • Stamp the flower image and the words from Bloom with Hope using black StazOn
  • Color the image in with a blender pen and Lost Lagoon and Mossy Meadow inks
  • Stamp the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Sahara Sand making sure to stamp off before stamping onto the card stock
  • Adhere a piece of Lost Lagoon stitched satin ribbon to the card
  • Adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Punch a flower from Hello Honey using the itty bitty accents punch pack and adhere to card
  • Add a rhinestone to flower center
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
