***I have 2 posts today - if you are looking for my My Time Made Easy post - please continue to scroll up - Thanks :)***

Hi Everyone! Time for a Sketch challenge with Just Us Girls, JUGS27! Kristin created this fun sketch for all to play with this week. I would like to welcome Sue Lelli as our April Featured Designer :) This will be Tracey's last challenge as a JUGS DT member, as she will be stepping down. Please take a second & head on over to Tracey's site for further details & leave her some love! :) Thanks so much Tracey for all the weekly inspiration! :)I wanted to share not only my card but this beautiful Cherub statue in her entirety with you :)Here is a closer view of my Blessings card:The elegant Gina K Designs Blessing sentiment says it all! You may know that I work as a Registered Nurse in the Operating Room. All I am going to share is that after seeing what I have seen for the past 11 years in the OR, I feel so Blessed in so many ways!!! When my co-workers gripe or as I am making that drive to work at 3 a.m. in the morning for an Emergency case, I count my Blessings for my health, family & friends (& papercrafting supplies)!

When I saw this fabulous sketch that Kristin created for this week's JUGS27 challenge, showcasing a beautiful flower sprouted in my thoughts :) It's not always easy to catch the shimmer of the Glimmer Mist when photographing but if you look closely or click the photo to enlarge, you can see the shimmer :)

Here is a quick tutorial on how I altered this beautiful flower:

Supplies Used:

1 paper flower (purchased at local craft store), heat gun, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Ranger Tim Holtz Antique Tea ink, sponge dauber

This photo shows what the flower looked like before I glammed it up!

This is super easy! Hold paper flower, spray Glimmer Mist, Heat with heat gun. Repeating the spraying step as many times as you like until you get the desired color! Using sponge dauber, apply distressing ink.

Before & After Photo:

What do you think? What I love about it is you can spray a plain white flower with any color of Glimmer Mist!

That's all for today! I hope you join along in the fun with Just Us Girls & give this tutorial a try! If you make a flower like this, please feel free to email me a link to your creation OR simply email a photo to me!! Would love to see what you do! Have a very Happy Easter Sunday if you celebrate & if you don't celebrate, hope you enjoy your weekend! Be Sweet!

WOW what a flower - LOVE it Mona. Did you make the white flower or did you buy it then glam it up? Love the card and that beautiful Blessings stamp. We are, indeed blessed and I am blessed to call you friend! Way to rock the JUGS. :-)

So pretty, Mona! Wonderful job altering that flower. :)

Where in the world did you find that dauber? I have looked high and low for one of those. All I can find is the big ones. I want one to use around the edges of my nestablilites.

Mona, do you do anything that is just "ok"? LOL!!! You are just so amazing! I LOVE what you did with the flower! So fab! I only have the Baby's Breath mist...I didn't realize the colored mists could do this! Love your card in so many ways!

So nice of you to remind us how fortunate we all are for our health (and papercrafting supplies!)! We sometimes do need to take a step back and contemplate our "blessings" instead of complain about some of the things that may make us a little crazy at times. Thanks for that reminder on this Easter weekend! Happy Easter, my friend!
