As you have probably already seen...our DT challenge this week was a sentiment ONLY...and some of the girls (including myself) were finding that challenge a challenge for sure! Thankfully I have this nice big sentiment so I didn't have to try to figure out what to fill the space on the card with!!!
I used Get Well Prayer and got out my cricut and did some cutting!!! I got lucky that I was able to make it just the right size so it fit the card and the sentiment! I don't do a lot of get well cards and people ask me all the time for them and I might do a few more with this sentiment...it just seems perfect!
Just in case you didn't notice...on the sidebar----------> you will find the discount code for the store and there are only a few days left in Feb. so hurry on over!!

Today I worked with Frolicking Trio...this is one of the first stamps I got because I loved the image but I don't work very much with silhouette's so I was a bit out of my comfort zone. Then I remembered I had perfect pearls and decided to see what I could do with them!
I inked up my image first with my versamark pad and then got out my perfect pearls and paint brush and went to town using 3 different colors. For my first try at this I think it came out pretty well although you can see a bit of a shadow around some of the girls and it wasn't suppose to look like that but if your not a stamper...you might think I was "trying" to make a shadow...lol!
Also the flower in the corner I made and then added perfect pearls to it as well. See....I find a way to add sparkle to everything!!! :-)

Simple. Unadorned. No frills. No matter my intentions, I have a difficult time creating simple cards. Today's card is no exception!
Now that Valentine's Day is over I can start thinking ahead to more Spring themed cards...lucky me that February's Stamp of the Month stamps made this an easy shift! The two stamps I used on this project are Spring Bird Bath (F519) and Friends (E748).
I wanted this bird bath to be a little vintage, a little worn and well loved, so out came the Copics and the Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy (again, yes, I know - I love this stuff!)
Here's a close up of the bird bath...
Basically, I stamped the image 4 times (once on scraps for the birds), cut parts out of 3 and layered them to give the image more depth. These birds are so darn cute! Frolicking comes to mind...don't you think?
Okay...don't want to keep you too long today...get comfortable, click on over and take a look around...you won't be disappointed - there's even a wish list feature you can use once you sign up!
