Hello my sweet friends! I pray you are having a week filled with rays of warm sunshine :) Today actually was very pleasant here in California! It is so nice to see the sun...just warms my soul ♥
If you've been following the saga of my hubby and his struggle to get his license to drive truck, you know that it's been quite a roller coaster ride for both of us! He was soooooo close to passing today, but then his backup skills didn't make the cut. Sigh. If I'm tired of it all, I can only imagine what he's been feeling! I am so proud of him though. He's never worked harder for something he's wanted so badly. So... if he continues to pursue this career, he'll have to start all over (again). Please pray that God will make His will known regarding this and that my hubby will follow in obedience! I KNOW how powerful prayer is, and I'm asking for your support. It means so much to me - thank you!
Now on to this week's Try It Out *T*... we have a color challenge with a twist! Use red or pink, and white or cream - make it about Love ♥. When given the choice, I default to pink, so I'm kinda surprised at what I came up with!
This is Cupcake and Kittens by Carmen Medlin for SCACD from the Reflections Set #2. Pretty adorable, huh?
I know this is quite busy, so I've kept the image pretty 'calm.' She's stamped with Memento Ink, colored with copics and just the right amount of stickles added for a touch of pizazz! lol! The pearls are made simply (and easily I might add lol!) with my Viva Decor Opal Paper Pen. EVERY TIME I use these paper pens, I fall in love all over again! I am not kidding!!! :)
Here's a close up of the MS heart I punched and blanketed with Glamour Dust (which is 15% off right now!). To continue with the red and white theme, I had to add a tiny red bow :) Do you see the 'lace' behind the scalloped oval (which is also 15% off!)? Not the real lace, but the paper 'lace.' It's made from the MS heart punch! To complete this Love Theme, I tied a bow from white satin ribbon and popped a red heart on top, put a few beads on the pin and tucked it under the bow - voila! You can find similar pins Here.
Oh... I almost forgot! The dp is from the Crush Collection by Bo Bunny (15% off!). You can find it Here!
Thanks for visiting today :) Come back soon... time is ticking for me to gather together my celebration CANDY and get the photo here so you can seeeeeeee!
Until next time...
May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
