Today’s card features the Amazing You stamp set, Celebrate You Thinlits, and Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. I created it for a special friend using the layout from this week’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
A dear friend was in a head-on collision near my home last week. When she couldn’t reach her husband by phone, I was her next call. Therefore, I rushed to the hospital to meet her in the ambulance and was very surprised at how “good” she looked. After scans and x-rays, she was cleared with a small fracture in her neck. She’s going to be alright. There have been some rough days since the accident and there will probably be more to come, but I’m simply amazed at her strength. I am so thankful that her life was spared and that together we can continue to laugh, cry, and watch our children grow.
The Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper is a show-stopper on its own with the silver embossed images. I added a silver foil die-cut “amazing” from the Celebrate You Thinlits dies and Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon that has been colored with the light Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. To complete the greeting, I stamped the words in Marina Mist and Old Olive inks before cutting them apart.
Up until last week, I had diligently been working ahead on blog hop projects, videos, and posting on social. I tend to shut down creatively when I’m feeling overwhelmed, but I’ll still post some of my now “late” projects this week as things return to normal.
