Better

Good Monday morning everyone. Wanted to show you a card I made last night while the Cubs were on. And I also wanted to thank you for your kind wishes concerning DH. He's feeling better this morning, and while I know that he's never going to be "great" again, I'm delighted with 'better.' I can always tell when he's doing alright because he's sitting in the family room next door with MLB Central on. Maybe it's the way his team is playing that's helped his general well-being, lol!! In reality though, I know that it's all the prayers said on his behalf that is sustaining him.

Card. That's really why you're here after all. Only one today, but if I'm a good girl and get my chores done early, I might just make more! Hmmmm...I'll stop chattering now and get to business. Didn't think I could play with at the Curtain Call challenge, but as it turns out, I made a card that works! And since it's an Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, I'm playing there too!


Here 'tis:


One little pot of succulents. The pot and succulent stamps are from two different HA sets, and the sentiment is from a SSS set. I die cut a circle with a WPlus9 die (yeah...like you couldn't tell it's a circle...) from a piece of My Mind's Eye on trend 2 patterned paper pad. And the images are colored with some Copics. One of the things I like best about this, is that the pink Copic matches the dp perfectly. Love it when that happens!! I've got to get to the chores now, but you all have a great Monday, and as always

I am glad that your husband is feeling a bit better. I am also glad that you made such a lovely card. I adore your succulent and LOVE how you paired it with that paper. Beautiful design!!

So delighted to hear John's feeling better. Baseball to him is like crafting to us: the perfect prescription for brightening spirits! I'm nearly turning cartwheels at your darling cactus, nestled in its pretty pink pot and surrounded by polka-dots! It doesn't get any cuter than this! LOVE x LOVE! Now I need to seek out my succulents sets and get 'hurrier-ing' to make a card *grin*
Hugs, love and misses,

Sorry to hear your hubby has had some health challenges and so happy to read of the Prayer support you have. Pray is the most powerful tool we have!. I am loving those lovely pink tips on your cacti and what a bonus to be able to match it with your papers so well.......love it when things like that happen.

That is such a sweet succulent, Bev. Sometimes I have a hard time figuring out how to display small images like that but your circle in the DP shows it off beautifully.

Geri said...

Ya think that this beauty made me smile from ear to ear? YEP, sure did! Absolutely 'delightful'. Love the wee bits of pink that you added to the leaves - clever idea and so effective!
