Stripes & a Flower




I've always been a fan of stripes...

~always.



stamps: Concord & 9th You Are Enough/Stripe Builder



Concord and 9th's Stripe Builder and You Are Enough were my first two sets from this company.


Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge 17 
use your first Concord and 9th set.

I stamped the beautiful sketched flower once in black and once in gray~offsetting a smidge.

Then I filled here and there with a Copic Cool Shadow, continuing on to the sentiment for a bit of depth.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Combo of Products~You Are a Survivor




My mom is a breast cancer survivor.

She's really low key about it, but my husband wears a pin now and again to honor her (I doubt she even knows that).


It's not a secretive thing...just a "hey don't worry about it, I'm good" kind of attitude.

Everyone deals in different ways, you know?


Anyway, I wanted to let her know I'm glad she's still ok.




 Essentials by Ellen Stamp & Die Set Courage,Concord & 9th Blooms Fill-In,Essentials by Ellen Folk Hearts




The following challenge~a combination of Essentials by Ellen and Concord & 9th~ inspired me to make a today card for her.
