Cardstock from my stash 
Geobuilders stamp set from Stamp
Of  Approval by Catherine Pooler
Enchanted Garden stamp set from 
Stamp of Approval 
irRESISTible Pico Embellisher 
Sequins from Amuse 
Doodlebug Designs Sprinkles
Pearls from my stash

I absolutely LOVED the Geobuilders
Stamp set by Stamp of Approval
when I saw Catherine Pooler do a
YouTube video using it. I have never
purchased one of her kids before, but
I am really glad I got this one. I had
a couple of boo boos so I  had to use 
some sequins, but I think I really like 
them in the end.
I can't wait to make some more cards with 
it and the other stamp sets in it soon.

For You

Cardstock from my stash 
Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor 
Birthday Blooms stamp set from 
Stampin Up 
Peerless watercolors from Amuse
Bling from my stash 
Wink of Stella pen 

I am in love with this card! 
I had been struggling with 
watercoloring, and just not liking 
my outcomes. I kept trying until I 
finished this card, and I think I've 
learned some things that are 
helping me. 
My mother's favorite color is yellow, 
and I am thinking I will send it 
to her.

Have a Swell Day

Neenah solar white cardstock 
Chrome Classic Dazzles from Hot Off The Press 
Paper from my monthly card kit
from Paper Wishes 
Nailhead metal stickers by Mark Richards 

I received my monthly card kit from 
Paper Wishes and it included this 
new set of Dazzles. I thought it would
make a great masculine card for 
my son and/or one of my 
brother in laws. It was very simple to 
make, just a little fussy cutting, and 
it was done. I love the outcome!

Cardstock from Gina K
Neenah solar white cardstock
Black cardstock from my stash 
Tim Holtz Holiday Words dies
Tim Holtz Distress inks 
Stampendous clear detail embossing 
Stampin Up stamp set Kinda Eclectic
irRESISTible Pico shimmer embellisher

I wanted to send a card to my daughter
letting her know I believe in her and
her ability to work through her
situation, and to trust God in the process.
I love the sun in this stamp set,
butterflies represent new beginnings,
and felt this card very simply expressed
that. I was very happy with the outcome.
If you look closely you can see the
shimmer on the word believe.
