TECC53 - MIL Card

This card is for my mother-in-law that is still in the hospital recovering from surgery. Barbara, we are praying for your quick recovery so we can get you back home. I used Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge TECC53 for the sketch. Love this sketch.

My friends Mercy Kerin and Ashley Ward came over to stamp with me on Saturday. We had so much fun. I borrowed this set from Mercy called Thoughts and Prayers by Stampin' Up! I just love this tree. I colored it with a Sage Shadow and Choc. Chip SU marker to get the two-tone effect. This paper (don't you just love it) is the new textured specialty paper called Parisian Breeze. It is so thick. The cardstock base is Choc. Chip and the background designer paper is matted with Baja Breeze. Everything else is pretty much straight forward.

Well, if you saw my previous post I competed in the Club Anya Blog Hop today to try and win some free stamps. I didn't win the stamps but I did win a pocket mirror that has an Anya image on it. Woohoo!!

Thanks for coming by to check me out. I hope you have a wonderful week.
