Prettie (Late) Monday - Prayers


I usually post my Paper Pretties cards on Mondays but yesterday was too much to handle (actually it was a carry over from the move on Sunday that I won't go into a lot of detail over). Let's just say I had the idea for this card Monday afternoon but it wasn't executed until 5:00 a.m. today!

This is the October SOTM - Angel Wings Sophia. Isn't she sweet? I love her closed eyes & clasped hands. I did the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique here. I stamped my image on glossy cardstock, brayered my Cotton Candy spectrum pad and laid my VersaMark pad all over it. Then I sprinkled Iridescent Ice embossing powder all over & heat set it. I just love the sparkle. The sentiment is from Starving Artistamps, timeless. I also stamped the floral bg on the regal rose base but it's hard to tell in the photo, sorry.

This reminds me of my niece Gabby; her mommy has been teaching her to say her prayers at night and late last night we heard her say them. It's amazing how clearly she speaks at 2 1/2! Now at the end of her prayers - she blows kisses to Jesus. Isn't that precious? She also sends us kisses through the phone - she really puckers up too! Only 7 more weeks until I can love on her in person!!
  • Stamp of the Month Club: If you'd like to get Angel Wings Sophia, sign up and you can have her a month before she's released to the general public.
