CPS 105 - Praying for You...

YAY! It was a snow day today - so I got to play a little!









I got to do this week's CPS sketch - using Damask Designs...I'm loving this set. Now, to become independently wealthy, so I can quit my job and stamp all day ;).

Here it is:
Now I will say - this card is NOT a traditional size. It does measure 5.5" wide, but the height...though I didn't officially measure is probably closer to 3.75" or 4". I had it 5.5"x4.25", but it just didn't look right so I trimmed closer to the aqua mist layers, it felt more balanced to me this way...even it if IS a 'weird' size.

The Damask and the sentiment are stamped in Brilliance Chocolate ink. I'm in LOVE with making these super cute ribbon flowers...super easy, and oh so cute...THANK YOU DEBBIE :)

Well, that's all I've got for today - hope you enjoyed your day today, no matter what the weather...we probably got at least 10" of snow...maybe more, but hard to tell, it's so windy...oh, and it's still snowing too...

Thanks for stopping by!!!

This is lovely and I so admire your ability to take the damask designs and stamp it nice and straight. :) Takes a lot of talent really to do that, but they are such cute stamps! And you created a beauty here.
