I have been a shipper for Send A Smile 4 Kids for the last two years. Knowing what the upcoming Holiday Season brings to my door, I needed to reorganize my spare bedroom to enable me to work more efficiently. I worked on moving things around to make space more accessible, discarding boxes, and labeling cards and files. Now I am ready to receive all the beautiful creations our card makers design. These cards put smiles on the faces of the kids who have to spend time in the hospital due to serious illness.
After that I hit my craft room. My husband came home from work today, clutched his chest and said the Lord was calling him (ha-ha). He came home to my craft room cleaned, desk uncluttered, papers put away and floor vacuumed (I am very bad with that one).
After all that was accomplished, I finally needed to do something for me. You got it — had to create a card. The challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown this week is to use a stencil. Here is my card:
I used Holly Background Stencil (Stamplorations), then stamped MFT Music Background stamp on top of the stenciled panel. I added the border to the panel using DCWV Glitzy Pastels, and the sentiment is from MFT Seasonal Sentiments. The gems are from Hero Arts.
In addition to Tuesday Throwdown I would like to participate in the following challenges
Crafting With Friends – Anything Goes
Creative Fingers – Anything Goes
Emerald City Crafts – Anything Goes
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend.
