Art Impressions #63 Inspiration Photo


Art Impressions has a gorgeous Inspiration Photo for us to draw from this week.  I just love the soft colors!  Here is what I came up.  Most of my Art Impressions stamps are of the funny variety, so I went with one of the cute sentiments I own.


I used an oak tag card stock, and a paper I printed from I digi in my stash.  My sentiment is AI E-1414.  I tried out my new Memory Box Valencia Border die, which was a Mother's Day gift.  I added some gems, Prima flowers, and Stickles.  Punches are from an unknown and EK Success.

On a personal note.......  Most of the people that follow my blog, know that my DH has been having some health issues lately.  He will be undergoing surgery on Wednesday, and after a few days in the hospital, he will be home with me for 6-8 weeks.  Sooner, if he behaves.  Please keep him in your prayers, and I will  give an update when there is one.  Thanks.

Oh, Mary Anne...So sorry! I hadn't read that he is going to have to have surgery. Please wish him a speedy recovery. I'll be praying for him, and sending up lots of extra prayers for you - a sick hubby is no fun at all! lol... Your card is adorable, dear friend - love that sentiment, too! Hugs...

Oww, Mary Anne, these are yummy colors to work with, and your card is wonderful. Love the sentiment, it's perfect! We spent today at the hospital while my BIL had major surgery, no fun, long waiting and stress, so know what you are going through. Know I'm thinking of you and your hubby and keeping you in my prayers.

Hugs

Prayers coming your way! Hopefully he behaves, sometimes with men that can be a challenge. Your card is so pretty, love the flowers and the colors that you used. Don't forget to get your rest as well.

Very pretty Mary Anne! Love that border die ALOT! Sorry to hear about your DH, will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. Sounds like some HOT weather is on the way for the weekend, better than all the rain though I guess??!
