Special Olympics and a handstamped card

Today was a very special day for my oldest daughter Heather ~ today was Special Olympics Track and Field. She participated in three events and was awarded a ribbon and two medals. I am so proud of her ~ it was so much fun to get to watch her and the others having so much fun. The volunteers were so great with all the kids too ~ thank you.

I did make a card tonight.. it started with a stamped image that I watercolored and then grabbed some cardstock I already had cut.. then some pattern paper and I had to change to another stamped image because I didn't think the first one went with the paper.. I have so much going on on this card that it made my head spin! just kidding.. I used the stamp set Essence of Love that is in the Occasions Mini SU catalog. Taken with Teal, Summer Sun and Confetti Cream Cardstock.. some pattern paper from Wild Asparagus that I trimmed around the design.. inked the edges (inked the edges of everything, even the ribbon).. then I stamped over with French Script and the weeds and butterfly.. on the main image I stamped the weeds/flower stamp.. then stamped the butterfly in versamark and used clear embossing powder.. then took a sponge over it.. nothing fancy.. just many different things.. probably because of the busy day I have had.. I thought I needed a busy card! ha ha..

tomorrow I am hoping that I can get some cards made for deployed troops.. I did send a PM to a lady on SCS saying I wanted to send some to her to send to troops too.. so I got to get busy stamping.

thanks for looking and reading, Pam

God Bless All Our Military
