Can I get a "Woot woot! It's the weekend!"? Ahhh, sometimes it feels like Friday will never come. This week has been filled with stress and pain. My little has been poked and prodded all week with allergy testing and blood work for his recurring fevers. Pray pray pray that the upper sinus infection they found in the CT scan is the source of this problem and the antibiotics and allergy immunotherapy treatment will resolve it!
"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." Philippians 4:6 NASB
Meanwhile I found out through my lovely friend Greta's recent blog post that there is a Simon Says Stamp challenge on Flickr. YAY! This challenge is to highlight the SSS brand products. I am so blessed to have won a few, including the Abstract Triangles background stamp - LOVE! I made a couple of CAS cards for the challenge.
Both cards were made with my favorite medium, watercolor. I used the Verve Stamps Kindness stamps and dies for my focal elements, along with some sequins and beads.
There is something so calming I find in making watercolor backgrounds. Do you agree?
I colored a scrap with the same blues and cut out my sentiment, then clear embossed for an enamel effect. I layered over glitterstock and was quite happy with the result. What a great stamp set, here's the inside of my card.
Here is my Flick page. And the SSS Challenge Group Page. Read the details on the sticky post at the top of the group when you join for details. Two $25 SSS shopping sprees are given every two weeks - yip yip! Have a great weekend. <3
