A Miracle.......

The card I want to share with you today is to be entered into the Challenge at Joan's Gardens
This is Joan's Challenge #19 and it calls for the following:

Paper-Flower background paper - preferably Webster Pages
Rosette or paper flower
Stamp - Sentiment - preferably JustRite
Border Punch -preferably Martha Stewart

I didn't have any Webster Pages paper but I did have My Mind's Eye in a floral and that is what I used.
The little rose is homemade and it mimics the Prima baby roses.  These are so much fun to make....I just typed "Making Homemade Prima Flowers" on U-Tube and up popped several videos to watch.  So I just learned from that!  The sentiment says "Every day holds the possibility of a Miracle"...It is a JustRite stamp.   I stamped the sentiment with Ranger Distress Ink and then cut out with a Spellbinders Ovals die then distressed the edges also.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edge of the card...Pretty straight forward and easy peasy!  I had a stray piece of braid laying around that already had the scor-tape on it so that went behind the sentiment.  I knew I'd have a use for that little scrap!    The stamen were purchased from Hobby Lobby and there were several in the package, so you will be seeing them a lot around here!  I added a little Ranger Crystal Stickles to the stamen to add a little shimmer.

I hope you enjoy this little card....it will be going into my box for the nursing home ladies!   As for me, my list is getting longer and longer on the to-do side and not much going over onto the done side.  I'm beginning to feel a little overwhelmed and out of step....so bear with me for a little while as I try and change this list to the done side.  My creations will be things that I can do with little thinking, and on the run.....

I love the colours. Just looking at that card makes me feel serene!
The craziness is just about to start dying down here, so I know just what you mean about feeling overwhelmed. I'm battling a virus my oldest brought home too, so even less is getting done this week! But this too will pass. I'm starting to see that life is a bit like a roller coaster. Slow, then fast, then up, then down. Eventually, things will die down again. Hang in there!
