Trust in Him... 55

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, June 21, 2011 @ 11:30 PM | , , ,

Happy Wednesday! Hope you are off to the official start of Summer (here in the US)! It's been quite hot here in AZ as to be expected. So thankful for air conditioning :)Last week, much to my surprise, I had a card featured on the Melissa Frances blog. If you have a chance, I would so appreciate you stopping by her blog click HERE and maybe even leaving some love :)


I had to make a Sympathy card for my sweet friend, Dianne, who's 60 year old brother passed away suddenly and completely unexpected from an ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm aka a Triple A. 
I started by first choosing various Melissa Frances DP then stamped a polka dot label from Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No.4 set using SU Bordering Blue ink then using a Spellbinders Labels Four die template to cut/emboss which was then layered it on top of a label cut using a Spellbinders Labels Four SM die template.
For sketch inspiration, I referred to WMSC3. REMEMBER: This week marks a special anniversary for  Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge  there is a celebration going on! Please be sure to visit the site ~click HERE~ for COMPLETE details and wonderful inspiration!
Thanks so much for looking! Hope you have a great day! Be Sweet :)


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Very Vintage Labels No.4, Words of Wisdom
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Labels Four SM,Labels Four, Grand Calibur 
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances
