Good Monday afternoon.....

to you my friends!!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I, well, we had a busy one and I only had a few minutes to stamp ;(. But, I do have something for you. Remember my square card I made the other day? Well, I have another 5.5"x5.5" card. It just felt right so I went for it. As I was going through my paper stash I just kept on stopping at the same paper several times and so I decided to just make a card out of it. As you all know I love my Basic Grey papers and I try not to cut them up too much, most of the time that ;P, and it was no different with this one. To stay within the colors of that DP I chose PTI Sweet Blush, True Black and SU Pretty in Pink I thought it made the DP pop a little more. I also used my scalloped oval Marvy punches which I have not used in quite a while (guess I am getting too used to all of my Nesties :D). The Sentiment is one of the many scriptures you get when you purchase the In God's Hand set from The stamps are kind of on the small side, but you get a lot of stamps for $ 7.99 in this case. So, to not drag it any longer I'll show you the end result.

For with God........

Paper: PTI Sweet Blush, True Black
SU Pretty in Pink
Basic Grey Eva, Vellum for the butterflies
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, SU Pretty in Pink
Stamp: Clear Dollar Stamps In God's Hands Luke 1:37
CTMH the word Faith
Accessories: Prima Nursery Tales Collection in pink
mega and giga Marvy scalloped punches
MS Butterfly punch
light pink crocheted lace from
Half pearls, pink crystals, Foam Tape,
EK Success Edger Punch

So, what do you all think? Those little flowers by Prima are really cool. I found them at Mike's for only $ 2.99 they come in a package of 24 and you get 6 in 4 different styles. The card turned out to be pretty heavy, so I think I'll keep this one for hand-delivery.

That is it for today, my friends. Do you believe that we are in the 90's already? I told my DH last night, I am going to have to turn the A/C on soon. That is Arizona for you!!!!

Sabrina this is beautiful. I love the way it looks. I will have to look around for those flowers. I saw the other day where someone had taken some flowers like that and colored them with copics. They matched perfectly. I hope your day cools down. I heard the west is very hot. We will get it here in the SE soon. Have a super day...
