More Strength and Hope

I had computer problems yesterday that brought me to a grinding halt as far as posting was concerned.  I think I have things worked out, but it took hours!

I was so happy that I could post a card today.  Then Luke had other ideas and I ended up pushing a truck with him for a while.  The days just aren't quite long enough!  But he will be grown and I'll be glad that I took the time to push a truck with him.  Besides, he gives great, sloppy 3 yr. old hugs!

This is for the Saturday Sketch Challenge at Stamping 411.


Here's the sketch .....


Don't forget that when you purchase this Strength & Hope stamp set, Stampin' Up! will donate $2.00 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).  What a good cause and a beautiful stamp set to boot!

I used the colors from the Color Challenge at SCS this week, Black Cherry Crumbs.  In other words, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Black and Ivory or White for the neutral.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Strength & Hope
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice EF,  Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Basic Pearls, Permanent Marker

Thanks so much for coming to visit today.  And I really appreciate all the lovely comments you have been leaving.

Enjoy!

Such a beautiful butterfly. Sorry about the computer trouble. Ugh!
Aren't 3 yr. old children the greatest? I think that is my favorite age.
