Happy Hump Day Peeps, hope your week is going well so far.
I don't normally share much on my blog about my personal life but since I have had several e-mails about things I thought I would take a moment to share.
August 1st DH had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital via an ambulance. He had a heart catherization and 4 stents. But as the doctor said to me afterwards- that was only secondary to his big problem, his heart muscle is very diseased more so than it should be for a man his age and is only functioning at 15% of what it should be. He said it is more than likely that he will never be able to work again. He is doing well now after a second trip to the hospital, just have to be careful. Needless to say we have had alot of things to work out. We will get there, but sure wouldn't mind a few prayers if you are so inclined.
Anyway I took a little time on Sunday to make a couple of cards, I had a sweet etsy customer ask for some Anniversary cards so I looked around for a couple of challenges to spur me forward. I always love the challenges on The Paper Players Blog and went there to check it out. It was this nice color challenge:
I created the two shades of cherry cobbler for the flowers by simply stamping off the first layer once and then full strength on the second layer. I did the same with the leaves and the crumb cake ink.
I used the night of navy for my sentiment.
The DSP and sentiment piece is from a Simply Sent kit.
I used cherry cobbler for the base and the next layer is crumb cake and then some white that I embossed with the perfect dots folder.
I added some silver sticky pearls (non SU) to the top corners and the sentiment piece.
I do love this flower stamp from Stampin Up called "Stippled Blossoms".
Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and
