It seems like forever...

It seems like forever since I last had time to MAKE something.  We were without power for 96 hours this past weekend due to some serious wind storms in the area and so I haven't been home.  I. WAS. HAVING. WITHDRAWLS!!!  It had already been almost a week since I had crafted and then the clean up after the storm prolonged the whole thing...WOW.  I am SO glad I had time to make a card tonight!!!

Here's the card and a bit of detail~


For these fabulous challenges~

(Use distressing in your project.)



I've used a gorgeous freebie image from A Day For Daisies, a sentiment by and unknown company (got it at a consignment sale), patterned glitter paper by DCWV, rhinestones by Basic Grey and Studio 120, gold glimmer mist from Tattered Angels, bubble wrap, and all other supplies used are by Stampin' Up!.

And now, I'd like to share some fun pictures from our mini vacay while the power was out!  Luckily we were able to salvage most of our perishables in my parents' freezer!  We stayed at my DH's parents' house since they were gone on vacation and so it was rather nice!

Here are some pictures from our adventure~

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope that you've been inspired to create something today and that you join in these super fun challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping friends!

What a great version of the sketch! You've used such a beautiful female image. I like how you stamped and colored it and adding pearls to her hair, and the floral background looks awesome!
