MTSC60, Curtain Call Color Combo #16 and CCEE

Hello my sweet stampin' friends!!!

Thank you to for keeping my stepfather in your prayers!!! It means a lot to me and my family!!! Never under estimate the power of prayers - right :) ?!? I just got off the phone with my mom and they have not heard anything from the doctors...so hopefully tomorrow!!!

I've been running around today ....getting some errands done, before my girls get off *Winter Break* next week!!!  I'm happy to show you a card I made last night. Thank goodness my girls were so tired they went to bed early and I had a chance to actually stamp - wahooo!!!

As I was blog hopping yesterday I found three wonderful Challenges I felt like taking on.....first the awesome Sketch from Mercy - MTSC60. Next the uper talented CCEE ladies are having an Inspiration Challenge going on and we were to pick an inspiration piece from this website - ImageKind.  I chose this beautiful roses bouquet for my inspiration which also fits into this weeks Curtain Call Color Combo #16 - using Kraft, Real Red and Very Vanilla.

Here is my card......sorry for some reason I have a hard time making this card look bigger on the screen....please make sure to click on it to see it larger!!! Thank you!!!


I used an older PTI Set called Women of Life ...it's actually my very first Set I bought from them and I'm still lovin' it!!! I have to be honest I totally forgot about this Set until I saw Mercy's Sketch!!!

For the Kraft color I used a Memento Ink called *Desert Sand*. The left panel was punched with the SU Eyelet Border Punch. I dressed the card up with some Red Satin Ribbon, Buttons and some punched out MS butterflies.

Thank you for being such sweet stampin' friends and for stopping by today!!!
