Celestial is the Trend


Hello,  Hope you are having a great day!  If you were in the path of Hurricane Michael, I hope you are safe and with minimal damage. Mother nature isn’t being kind lately and I hope it stops very soon.  It breaks my heart to see the devastation it left behind. Feeling very blessed as I write this post.  Other than some rain and gusty winds, all was well here on the west coast of Florida. I am sending this card to my son ( whom I adore and miss, more than you can even imagine) and I can’t say exactly why I am sending this card, but I hope he doesn’t happen to check my blog before he receives it. You will have to trust me that it looks even better in person.  I had so much fun creating my celestial background with my oxide inks, starting with a piece of white card stock. It was a ton of blending!! The letter dies are from MFT and the “so proud of” is from SU.  That wooden moon stamp is something I have had for eons and is white heat embossed. The stars were heat embossed too and made with a SU stencil as well. Some splatters, and I was done.
