Good Morning!!

I am all mixed up this morning.   I had a weird night… with hubby in pain still, but he slept most of the night and IS feeling much better this morning.   I, being the co-dependent person that I am, could not sleep though.   I kept watching him to make sure he was breathing.   Funny how after 27 yrs, my dh is like one of my children.   I am a professional worrier, too.   I excel at worrying.   I come by it honestly though as my mom was a worrier.

Anywho, I got up this morning a little late because I lounged around on the computer for a time before letting my feet hit the floor (oh the joys of owning a laptop!).    Before I saw the Ways To Use It challenge, I had convinced myself I was going to use these colors today…. do NOT ask me why! LOL

So…. today’s WT Challenge (layered embellies) was doubly challenging for me.


I had in my mind that I *MUST* use Chocolate chip, Close to Cocoa and Taken with Teal.   I fought with these colors to make them work, but I believe I won!   The new set (Irish Blessings) from Our Daily Bread Designs worked well with the colors.   I adore this cross!   I stamped and colored it twice, then cut both out and layered them with dimensionals.   I even found a small piece of teal velvet ribbon!  SCORE!

Here are my deets:

Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs ~ Irish Blessings

Colors: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Taken With Teal, GP White

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, copic markers

Accessories: gold 1/2 pearls, teal velvet ribbon, medium scalloped circle punch, prima, cross charm, MS border punch, scissors, dimensionals.


AND…….. I have some news to share.    I was contacted late yesterday about becoming a member of the Artful INKables design team.   I have been drooling over her (Kristen’s) faeries for some time now and decided that I would YES, indeed, take the offer.   So, if you get a chance, check them out!   You’re going to love what you see!!


Thanks for stopping by!   Hope you all have a blessed day!

    Congrats, Holly!! You DT Diva you 🙂

    Great card. Love the mini cross in the flower and you did make these colours work together wonderfully (may need to send Emily an e-mail for a SCS CC). My Irish friend would love this one!

    Glad you DH is feeling better. Any updates on Marci. Was thinking and praying for her today.
