Hello!  I know it’s been a while since I last posted (What, has it been over 2 weeks already?!), but ready to get back in the swing of things.  You know, life gets crazy for all of us and we sometimes we have to make choices on what pieces are most important, and what things can can be placed on the back burner.  And for me, this needed to wait…BUT THE WAIT IS OVER!!!

I’m back to posting with my Sisters In Stamping for our Fabulous Friday posts, and this week we are featuring trees.  I love trees!  I’m a country girl, so trees are around me every day.  I love the changes in trees when the seasons change, and spring is no exception.  Flowering trees are blooming, leaves are greening and everything is brighter…the only problem?  Pollen allergies!

For today’s post, I wanted a tranquil scene for my card.  This Praying For You card is a great way to lift up a friend who may be going through a difficult time, pondering some big life choices, dealing with illness, and so much more.

The Bermuda Bay sky was done with a single stamp, and a single inking!  I just inked my stamp from the Timeless Textures stamp set, and starting towards the bottom of my card stock, stamped once.  Then, without reinking, I moved my stamp up about 1/2″ and stamped again.  I continued going up the page until I had achieved my final look.

The Trees are from the In the Meadow stamp set, and the sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers.  Both were stamped using the Basic Black Archival stamp pad.  I think the only thing I would do differently is slightly pull down my sentiment.  Otherwise, I think this project turned out beautifully.
