Happy Tuesday my sweet stampin' friends!!!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend??? We had two Volleyball games in town and I'm beyond thrilled that we won both games...GO EAGLES!!! GSU is currently tied in 1st-place!!! Our girls are on *fall break* and I'm only working a few days this week....yeah!!! We signed Sarah and Becca up for a *Volleyball Camp* and they are having fun!!! Mimi and I are getting to hang out for a few hours here and there without her big sisters...and she is lovin' it!!! So much going on this week...we have the *fall fair* in town and maybe we'll go there for family night tonight :) ?!?
Anyway, today we are having a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC89 for you!!! My sweet friend Maki is hosting and she is challenging us to create a card /project were the *SENTIMENT* is the focal point!!! Hope you'll join us for this fun challenge?!?
Here is my idea.....
I inked up the beautiful sentiment from the Lily of Hope Set. Matter of fact I'll be mailing this card to my co-worker Janice. She is currently hospitalized and still waiting for a heart transplant. If you follow my blog, you know she survived two very critical surgeries this past Friday and it's truly a miracle that she is still with us!!! Her live is a real roller-coaster right now and I hope this card will bring a smile to her face!!!
For my card today I used the DP from the SU So Saffron Collection. I added some *faux stitching* to it with a White Gel Pen. The right side of my card was scored. I also scored the So Saffron CS behind the sentiment. Since I love the look of the sweet little Paper Doilies...I couldn't resist and added one in the background. I also added some Silver Pearls and some sparkly new White Prima Flowers.
Now to the fun part :) !!! My birthday is tomorrow and I decided to celebrate it with some Blog Candy!!! One lucky winner will be able to pick one Flourishes Set of their choice!!! I will also put some extra goodies in the mail for the winner!!! Leave a comment and I will choose one lucky winner this Friday night!!!
