Praying For You

I know I have seen this set all over the place, but seriously, it is SO gorgeous I could look at it all day. I know that I have said it recently, but SU REALLY knocked it out of the park with this catalog. I have NEVER(since 2002) been more pleased with the selection of stamp sets, paper and embellishments. I just wish I didn't like it all so much...makes me broke, LOL!! Good thing I have kept up with my monthly minimums so I at least get a discount, right??!! Anyway, I was stalking the Ways to Use It challenge waiting for my nephew to get here, and when I saw it was to use stripes, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. In fact, I was going to make this exact card today, no matter what the challenge was because I couldn't stand to have it trapped in my head any longer. I stamped the tree from Thoughts and Prayers with Chocolate Chip ink along with the sentiment, and then layered it with Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip. I added some piercing and buttons from the Button Latte and Bouquet collections. I did add some hemp to the holes, so Miss Jody wouldn't yell at me..hehe. The white ribbon is from the Dress Up Ribbon Originals and the Chocolate is just the wide grosgrain. I paired it with Kiwi Kiss DSP as well as Chocolate Chip. I saw a card with this sketch on Cindy's blog yesterday, and even though I had used the sketch before, I knew it was PERFECT for the card I had seen in my head...believe it or not, the card I had in my head would have only been two layers...we can't have that, LOL!! Well, Jared is here now and demanding my attention. In the last two weeks he has decided to crawl(more of an Army crawl but still), become VERY good with his walker, and sit up on his own.....MAKE HIM SLOW DOWN!!
Have a great day!!
