Yes, this sweet card really says I’m Praying for You. I love cards like this because I do pray for people and I like to send them cards to let them know that I care about what they’re going through. This is a perfect sentiment for that.
The Thoughts & Prayers stamp set is one of my favorites because it has several great sentiments like this one. I have used this stamp set so many times ~ it’s really a classic! Feel free to click on the picture below to get more details.
Pretty Pointer: To highlight or focus on a sentiment, cut it out in a nice shape and lift it up on Stampin’ Dimensionals to bring attention to it! For this sentiment I cut it with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits and went even further by cutting a larger circle in a companion color. This really emphasized the sentiment.
For today’s card I’ve used the very pretty Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. You know our designer papers coordinate perfectly with our card stock. That’s one of the stand out things about Stampin’ Up! We are specialists in color coordination 🙂
You know, I’m wondering if you might want me to pray for YOU? If so, just email me at [email protected] and I would love to pray for you. I so appreciate all of my blog readers – YOU – and would be happy to be able to do something for you 🙂
Today’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge Board is really fun. I love all of the elements on the board! You know if you follow my blog that for this Challenge we choose squares on the board to form a tic tac toe. I’ve chosen the last row across for my tic tac toe.
Can you spot the vellum? The leaves in the flower bouquet are actually made of imprinted vellum! They, along with the colored flowers, are from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit. This kit is just packed with fun embellishments, including the blue scalloped velvet ribbon! (Love! Love!)
I’m so glad Kraft Paper was included on this board. I’ve used it behind the watercolored panel and it really adds depth. There are also two kraft die-cut flowers in the flower bouquet. They were cut with the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies. I also used a few sequins 🙂 The Kraft Paper was some I had in my stash.
Thank you for stopping by today, and please pop over to tictactoechallenge.com and play Tic Tac Toe with us!!

Lavender ~ a sweet smelling flower with beautiful light purple blooms ~ can’t you just smell it from the description? Well, today I have a card using the prettiest stamp set of a bouquet of lavender tied with a bow!
This is such a fun stamp set…why is it fun? Well if you look below at the stamps, you’ll see outline stamps (the flower bouquet and the floral sprig) and the rest of the stamps are ones that fill in parts of the outline. When you hover over the outline and stamp, it appears like watercoloring! It’s really fun!
And, this stamp set is FREE – yes free, with an order of $50! We have so many great free items during Sale-a-Bration. Basically it’s a time when you can place an order and get free stuff just for ordering! Who doesn’t love that? And this Lots of Lavender stamp set is one of those free items.

For today’s card I fussy cut the lavender bouquet so that I could feature it on top of a Metallic Foil Doily. Where is the metallic foil? Well, I turned the foil side down for this particular card and have the white backing side showing up. I love the pattern on these doilies, and white just looks nice with lavender 🙂

Do you like decorating your home? I love decorating the inside of my home, and my front porch. I usually keep a wreath on my front door, and for the past year or so I’ve had a wreath with leaves and little soft white buds. They look like tiny cotton buds. For each season I’ve added some special trim to my wreath.
For Valentine’s Day I decided to hang a small heart banner across the center opening of the wreath. I cut the hearts using the large heart from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies, and I used the fabulous Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper for the hearts.
I cut out several hearts (one is from plain Melon Mambo card stock) and clipped them onto some of the pretty Gold Love Mini Tinsel Trim with Gold Library Clips. Bling bling!! I simply tied the ends of the trim onto branches of the wreath. Easy!!
When we moved into our home we painted our front door black. It was a bold move but now I’m so glad we did it. It looks good, and everything I hang on my door looks great against the black!
Order the items needed to make this wreath and earn a FREE SALE-A-BRATION GIFT!! Below are the items I used for this project. If you order these four items you will qualify for a FREE Sale-a-Bration item! Yeah ~ who doesn’t love FREE product!
