Hope

HOPE...
Have you ever made a card for yourself? I have made a few to make me smile and support my challenge.
This card has a lot of meaning to me personally, I placed it on my dresser to look at each day.(smile)! That being said, I think the card turned out nicely and would be appropriate for the right occasion, when hope is needed to keep the faith.
Feeling the cherry blossoms, since on my walk yesterday I saw the first sign of flowers on a tree in pure white! Just beautiful! I dug out this favorite stamp and made this card yesterday after I returned from my walk. Before we know it our fruit trees will be in full pink buds and blossoms! (smile)!
Recipe:
CS-Choc. Chip, Whisper White & Pretty In Pink (SU)!
Ink-Choc. Chip (SU)!
Stamp-Hero Arts
CB -Textile folder
Mega scallop circle punch (Marvy)
Small scallop oval punch (Marvy)
Copic pink marker and pink dew drops on blossoms
Sheer brown & pink polka dot ribbon from a RAK
Have a great rest of your weekend! Time to go walk through the groves with Lobie now! DH will be home Sunday and Monday, how sweet it is! Take care! Thanks for all of your support! Deb

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I'm not a stamper at all, I do occasionally make cards and use stamps, but I just don't have the patience to color everything in the stamps. I admire your stamping skills. Beautiful cards!
