Just Us Girls Challenge #19


Hi all!
Boy, I sure am getting into these challenges lately!   This one is for the sketch challenge over on Just Us Girls.   This week's challenge was a sketch and you can find it here.

The stamp is from Clear Dollar Stamps.   I embossed it with black Colorbox ink and clear powder, and then colored it with my ZIG markers.   I cut all the scalloped circles with my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities dies, and the white circles were cut on my Cricut.   I sponged everything with Memento Lulu Lavender Ink, and then raised the circle with the pansies up on foam tape.   The paper is from DCWV Once Upon a Time.


I hope you're all having a happy Thursday!   I'm hoping to get some more stamping done today in between loads of laundry and picking up the house.   Hubby was home sick yesterday so I need to sanitize EVERYTHING.    
Oh and if you get a chance, send up a little prayer for my Grandma.   The poor thing has been in and out of hospitals and a nursing home all year, and just yesterday they had to take her back to the hospital because she has an infection in her leg that is going to require surgery.   Pray that God will heal her up and lift her spirits.

Thanks so much & God bless YOU too!
Sue :o)
