Bear Hugs

Hi Friends!

It was my usual cleaning Monday, although I did sneak out afterwards for a quick pedicure and then settled in to create. I also took a few minutes to add an extra gift for some of my favorite rescues for the #bettywhitechallenge in honor of her wonderful life.

Today’s sweet encouragement card is sure to brighten up someone’s recovery time.

I used Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Bear Hugs set and colored with Prismacolors. The tiny hearts are from Catherine Pooler Designs Hello Amazing set I used a couple of days ago. I forget how difficult it is sometimes to stamp such tiny stamps but they just add the little extra touch. This card would be really easy to make multiples of.

I hope your week is off to a fabulous start.

With Love & Care

Hi Friends!

While I didn’t get as much done as I’d like in the studio this weekend, I certainly enjoyed some stress-free creating and a little tidying up.

I am continuing with my encouragement series with tonight’s card. The series will continue throughout the year.

I opted for a twist on a traditional black silhouette stamp by using an ombre stamp pad for the flower image on a soft blended background. I pulled Gina K. Designs Little Garden Silhouettes and Caring Flowers stamp sets to create with. The Little Garden Silhouettes set was included in my December SCT Sampler. Often the sampler items are exclusive to that month.

I hope your week ahead is filled with kindness & care both for yourself & those around you.
