I Appreciate Your Kindness!!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! I cannot even believe that it has been an entire WEEK since I posted to my blog! I don't think I have ever done that before!! Yikes!!
I had a heinous week at work last week, and then orientation for Meredith's nursery school, and then I went to Maine on Saturday morning and came home last night...sheesh!! No wonder I haven't posted!!

Well, Meredith starts nursery school today so I am off work so I can take her, pick her up, and then, if she is a good girl at school, off to Build-A-Bear!!

I did want to get in one card before we leave!! This is my card for today's Color Challenge on SCS, CC236, Whisper Pretty Soft Suede, and also for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC39!!

For my card, I started by stamping this gorgeous floral image from Side by Side by There She Goes in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock. I colored the image with Copic Markers (which I got more of in NH this weekend...woot!), and cut it out with Circle Nestabilities.

My Pretty In Pink and Soft Suede panels were run through the Cuttlebug with Diamond & Stars Impressabilities from Spellbinders. These are AWESOME and I LOVE the pattern it created! I highlighted the pattern with a Sponge Dauber and some Whisper White Craft Ink.

I added some piercing, and stamped the sentiment, I Appreciate Your Kindness, from Bloom by There She Goes, directly onto my Pretty In Pink panel using Soft Suede Ink!! I finished off my card with three Whisper White Brads and a double ribbon of Whisper White Organza and Soft Suede Polka Dot! I really must stock up on that Whisper White Ribbon before I say farewell to my SU! Demoship at the end of the month!!

Make sure you check out the There She Goes Blog! It's brand new and there are awesome new posts every day! Today is Trendsetter Tuesday featuring Faith!! WOO HOO!!
