Make a Wish

Both of my boys are away at the moment, leaving the house very quiet. You know what that means right? The house doesn't get as messy, I don't have to fight anyone over the remote, there is guilt free time to stamp and it also means I miss them!! Our oldest has now been gone for 10 days, the half way point of his conservation crew adventure. There has been no contact, which we expected but I secretly hoped we would hear something. So we just pray.

I did spend most Sunday trying to create some projects. I kept getting side tracked by the disaster that was all around. I seriously need some elves to come tidy up the place! I persevered though and here is one of the cards that managed to get finished.

The flower is part of an SU hostess set called Simply Soft, it is filled with lovely images. Although the set is a 2 step set, I only stamped the outline for this card and colored it in with Copics. I pulled the sentiment from the Flourishes set called Kids at Play. The soft blue paper is from Graphic 45's line called Baby 2 Bride. The doily is a die cut, don't you love how detailed it is? The die is from a company called Cheery Lynn Designs and this particular doily design is called French Pastry, I picked it up at my LSS.

It is back to work for me. I am closing in on my 1 year anniversary. Where did that time go???
Thanks for stopping!

Beautiful card, Tracy. The colors are so tranquil and pretty together. I love the way you pull things from different companies and mesh them together so well on the same project. I would have sworn that was a regular paper doily out of a package rather than a die cut. You know, the boys may not admit it, but they just might be missing you too !!
