Faith ...

WOW ... what a loooooong week away from my stamping room!  It is exactly one week ago today that I completed last week's DT projects, packed everything away and got my stamping room ready to turn back into a guest room for my hubby's parents to stay in while here visiting for my youngest son's high school graduation.  They just left today to head back to NY, so I've been stripping beds and getting the house back to normal.  The graduation went wonderful ... and I now have both my sons in college and come August I'll be an empty nester - YIKES!!  How in the world did THAT happen while I wasn't looking??!!??

Anywhoo ...  here's a little card for ya' all!  I was craving some shabby, vintage time, so nothing very CAS here.  I 'needed' to play with lots of my favorite embellies and techniques -- stampin' withdrawal is the worst!


Lots of goodness here ... Prima flowers and leaves, trinket pin from Maya Road, stamps from Flourishes, rhinestones from Melissa Frances, DSP's and rub-ons from Fancy Pants, ruffly flower made with Basic Grey kraft DSP, eyelet lace trim, CS and punches from SU!  - dug into my coveted 'stash' of Purely Pomegranate for this little beauty!!  What fun :)

Challenges for this design:

The Play Date Cafe #33 - raspberry, aqua, kraft & white
Cupcake Inspirations #63 - aqua, pink, white, green
The Shabby Tea Room #14 - Summer fun (flowers from the garden)
Caardvarks - stamping & dry embossing

The Creative Cottage #14 - pink (eyelet lace is spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist)
Simon Says Stamp - 1 image; 2 DSP's; 3 embellies
