Ah, I made a card! We've had a lot going on again. More about that later in the post. At any rate, I spent a little time in my stamping area - after I got it all cleaned up again! - and made this card for two challenges. It's for Natasha's Clean and Simple Stamping Fall-To Layout challenge, found here, and also for the CASual Fridays challenge to make a card using only black and white. You can find that challenge here.
I used a Cuttlebug folder for the sentiment panel, embossing white cardstock and then brayering over it with black ink. The patterned paper on the bottom is from a matstack from Die Cuts With a View. I matted both with black cardstock. I added the black shimmery flower with a white brad. The embossed panel is mounted on Dimensionals.
Our daughter-in-law was having severe back pain and went in to have it checked out. She ended up getting a steroid injection in her spine for a herniated disk. She is doing better, but it will be a slow process, I'm thinking. We had Owen (our one-year-old grandson) here overnight a couple nights and had him extra time over the weekend. It kind of wore me out! Her parents are in town for a few days, so I've had a couple days off to rest up and get a little bit caught up. This was the first card-making I've done, though, as I had other things that needed to be done, including among other things, getting my stamping area cleaned up. It was a MESS! If anyone would be so kind - we would love prayers for a rather quick and complete recovery. Thanks so much!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
