Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge Card



Good Morning & Happy Hump Day Everyone!

I had a very nice weekend at the SU! event & rest assured I'll be sharing with you next week.  Why next week you ask?  I'll be having oral surgery on Monday so that's the perfect time for me to pretype some posts & share some things I learned/received from last weekend.  I already have my prescriptions filled and I'm gearing myself up for the IV I'm getting.....if you haven't figured it out by now; I'm 100% pure chicken when it comes to pain & needles so I'm opting to be completely knocked out for this surgery......

Anywhoooo....onto my post for today!  I'm having a lot of fun playing along with The Paper Players and when I saw the recycling challenge; it got me to thinking....what could I possibly use since we don't drink pop?!!  Clothing/fabric popped in my mind!  I have a bag of clothes that was intended for the Salvation Army but I think I'll *steal* a few pieces for my Big Shot first LOL!!  I took one of my daughter's shirts and cut flowers from it to qualify this card for the reycycling part!  My creation is also using shades of pink which is the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments & I LOVE the Mojo Sketch this week so I had to incorporate that as well!  Thanks ladies for all the wonderful challenges & the opportunity to show off my work!!!

I'll be back on Saturday with my Etsy post so be sure to come back & visit me again!  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

  2. This is so pretty and such a perfect idea for recycling, using fabric for the flowers. Love the color combo as well. I am with you when it comes to dentists, it isn't so much the possible pain, as the noise, I hate the sounds. Good luck with the surgery.
