happy thoughts. . .

wow -- these challenges are addicting.  hehe.  here is a card i did this afternoon, and it fits 2 challenges:

splitcoast stampers sketch challenge -

here is the sketch -

and it also fits this weeks challenge at stampin' sisters in christ sunday challenge .
the scripture this week comes from Proverbs 10:20-21 "The tongue of the righteous is as choice silver, the heart of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of understanding." the devotion for the week focuses on someone who encourages you .the challenge is to create a card that encourages and has a touch of silver. 

so -- here is my card for these 2 challenges.

stamps used : butterflies come from designs unlimited, the sentiment is from impression obsession, and the hydrangea is from the SU set because i care.

the paper and cardstock i had on hand, and the silver trim was also on hand.

the inks are SU and are old olive and perfect plum.

the flower is popped up on dimensionals.

thanks for stopping by - -this card is headed off to a woman from our church who could use a smile! :)

happy stamping !

this just in -------  (hehe) (added monday morning)

i was just checking out some other cards at the SICSC and i found another challenge!  woohoo --- i'm also entering this in the  paper sundaes challenge. again, it's the first time i've entered this challenge - these are fun! :)  the challenge is to "pop something up" on your card.  the flower image is popped up on this one.
