Whey I have missed my stamp time. I will be glad when my life returns to normal if it ever does. LOL. I usually do NOT stamp in the evening but am soo missing my dh as he is in August with his Mom so I thought I would knock out some challenges I missed. Jessie's Mom has seizures and for the 2nd time in 2months she has had a seizure while cooking at the stove that resulted in 2nd and 3rd degree burns. This time it was really bad and covered the entire inside of her right arm and the hand as well. After a short time in our ER here she was shipped to Augusta's burn center in ICU. Today they have began debriding and such. He is up there with his Dad.
So this is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE - Always Bravo Cameo, Monday's TECHNQIUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Wiper Card and my layout is from today's MERCY'S SKETCH CHALLENGE # 44. I love Mercy's sketch for today and knew I wanted to use it somehow. I had also viewed the video Beate did for the wiper card and I am a visual person so that was a great help and thought I would give it a try. Love it. I used my new Quickutz embossing folder I got at HL last Friday called diamonds and dots on the cameo layer. I stamped the open leaf image on my bravo burgandy base from this darling set called Simple Wishes found at TREEHOUSE STAMPS in bravo burgandy ink. I just can NOT stop using this darling flower set. I stamped the vanilla layer with the large flowers in cameo coral and the dotted centers with bravo burgandy after stamping off. Stickles to the centers. The leaves are in always artichoke. The little tag that pops up was stamped with get well wishes in burgandy and the small flower in cameo coral after stamping off. The 4 faux brads on the corners are from my crop-a-dile punch. I love how this turned out but what do you think?
