Hi friends - hope you are enjoying a great summer; ours has been very up and down, this past weekend was ALL DOWN. Here's a picture with a clear description of why it was such a difficult weekend; BUT I saw SSS is carrying a new stamp line: Colorado Craft Company, have you heard of them? I had not, but one set has this quote that was so touching to me today: "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. LOVE leaves a MEMORY no one can steal." - how awesome is THAT, gosh, I just love it!

Returned with an empty collar and leash. #hearbroken
Anyway, let's move on to happier topics. :D Our youngest daughter recently had the opportunity to participate in a medical shadowing program in St. Cloud, MN - you shadow a different doctor every day; such a great experience. We know the doctor that leads the program, he helps students prepare as they are ready to start applying to medical school; she's not there yet, but never too soon to shadow doctors. She had a BLAST! She stayed with the head doc and his wife; they had talked on the phone a few times before she arrived telling her there were weekends they would be traveling so she would be home alone, well...that lasted - NEVER! She was quickly adopted into their family traveling every single weekend with them; even participating in their grandson's first birthday. LOL Needless to say, what an experience.
I wanted to be sure we sent them a special card. I also ordered cookies from: Heidi's Heavenly Cookies; our daughter had told me they really like sweets, having dessert with almost every meal; so the cookies were a huge hit!
The card uses Reverse Confetti THANKS cut combined with SSS Even More Spring Flowers. I watered colored the flowers then finished them off with Zig Clean Clear Brushes for more vibrant colors. I added Nuvo shimmer to all the flowers and the word THANKS after coloring ombre with Zigs.
The background uses the smooshing technique - THAT'S all kinds of official - of a few distress colors. Once dry, I stamped the IndigobBlu Honeycomb background with Versamark and dusted with Perfect Pearls. I flicked on some white paint then assembled the shaker card with some beautiful sequins - also adding a few to the outside and adding a dot of Nuvo crystals drops to each.
Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great week!
