Flower Soft Challenge and Some SWEET STUFF for YOU!!!
Happy Wednesday everyone and I hope your week has started in such a positive way!! I am pre-posting this for you because I will be in the hospital on Tuesday getting the porthole installed....wonder if they can look in and see what's cooking in this old body??? lol I will begin 6 sessions of chemotherapy on Monday, March 1, so we will see just how well I handle this new experience!! The sessions will be 3 weeks apart so I am planning on LOTS of wonderful and creative days in between the sessions!!! AND on Day 15, the hair becomes a shiny head!!! Just think, no more haircuts and more $$$ for crafting stuff...wooooohoooooooo!!!!
This is my very first opportunity to contribute to the Flower Soft Blog and I have been looking forward to it so much since I was named to the DT several weeks ago! Our challenge today is to "Say It With Flower Soft" and a tutorial can be found HERE. I have also used a Moments In Time image for each of my cards and I think they are so darling! Moments In Time is a collection of heart-warming imagery brought to you by the talented illustrator Rikey Austin and developed by Flower Soft® into a series of nostalgic Card Toppers™ and Stamp Sets. Kling-on cushioning is included with each stamp.
For the first card above I used Just For You image and the DP is Imaginisce, a gift from the so sweet and very talented Suzan. Thanks Sweetie!! The image was colored with Distress Inks and then I added a bit of Flower Soft at her feet for dimension. The letters for HI were cut with Cricuit and covered with Ultra-Fine Flower Soft.
For the next card I used Cosmo Cricket DP and the image Man of the Match was colored with Copics, adding a bit of Flower Soft to the grass. The letters PALS are chipboard letters covered with Ultra-Fine Flower Soft.
The last card is the sweetest image Grows With Love colored with Distress Inks, adding a bit of Flower Soft to the grass. The DP is from Marianne Designs Pretty Papers Bloc Blue. GROW was just written on the CS and covered with Flower Soft.
Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you will visit the Flower Soft Blog to see what the other DT members have done for the Say It With Flower Soft challenge!
