So Very Blessed…

This post title is so very spot on today and everyday for that matter!!

I am truly Blessed with the wonderful son god has given me!!  Having

him home this summer and being able to share the joys and

accomplishments of his day at work is something I look forward to

each and every night around the dinner table.

Not to mention, he helps me prepare dinner and is really getting good at

firing up that grill and making some tasty meals.

Ty, I couldn’t be more proud of you, your work ethic, and the

man you are becoming!!

But that is not why you stopped in now is it?

Sorry, but us moms gotta brag once in a while! (wink wink)

Let’s hop on over to today’s card that all started with the sketch over at

CAS(E) this Sketch. It intrigued me the second I layed eyes on it.

You should see what some of the designers and participants have

done with it….really inspirational stuff!

So if your MOJO needs a tune up…..go have a peek…it’s bound to help!

I have linked it up for you twice!



I am not sure this card is fabulous…but it’s the first time I have ever stamped

the entire background of a card before.  I have seen it done so many times, but

it is not as easy as it looks.  I have seen it with random colors throughout,

and the other day on Pinterest I saw it done by lumping the like colors together.

I think the stamp selection is key to this endeavor and I vow to you and

well you….lol….I will not let this card defeat me and will try this again very soon!


The stamps are random of this and that and all the ink is from SU.

Added some ribbon, the sentiment, and a strip of paper

cut with my Fiskars Victorian blade to finish it off!

Have a wonderful hump day!
