Thoughts for You

     The April Progressive Challenge at Deedee's Digis is under way and the set for this month is both lovely and versatile.  I used it for a card expressing thoughts and prayers.  The frame and the sentiment are both from the Blooming Blessings set.  There are also sentiments for Mother's Day, for Spring, for Get Well, and Congratulations.


     The card front is embossed and rubbed with chalk.  The circular frame image is hand cut and the sentiment is corner punched; both are adhered with dimensional dots.  The bow was tied using my new bow maker from Craft-Dee BowZ (I do love it!!) and I also attached a left over scrap of sheer ribbon to it for a bit of sparkle.  I added yellow glitter to the center of the flowers on the frame.  I wanted it to remain very CAS.

     I hope you'll come and play in our monthy Digi of the Month (DOM) challenge.  It's a progressive challenge which means that you can purchase, at a much reduced price, the DOM set for the first month you play, and then you get the set for the following month as a freebie!  :-D  Each month that you play, you'll get a set for the next month free.  Hope to see you over there.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Wow! This is the 2nd card I've seen using this set. What a great set! I still don't see how you can do such a neat job on hand cutting frames.

Connie,
First and foremost, I love your feline friends. They are so cute! Mine feel that I am their human, not them as my cats :)

I really love the simplicity and versatility of your card. It is wonderful to have cards like this in your stash.

Thank you for joining us for the Fun-day Friday Challenge at ~Jo's Scrap Shack~

Happy crafting,
Bridget
